Planning infrastructure for Dynamics GP cannot be done in a vacuum. Existing systems, as well as future plans and projects, should be considered to determine whether the current infrastructure needs to be augmented to support your Dynamics GP implementation. While your role may be strictly to implement Dynamics GP, together with the IT resource on your implementation team, encourage the company to take a slightly broader approach to planning infrastructure. Thinking about the shorter term (the next one to three years), as well as the longer term (three to five years ahead), consider the following questions:
Are there plans to hire more employees or consultants? If so, what applications will these users need access to?
Are there plans to implement additional systems after Dynamics GP?
Are there upgrades already planned to any hardware or software?
Is there a need for remote users for Dynamics GP, as well...
