Microsoft has unveiled Dynamics SL 2011, an enterprise resource planning (ERP) offering, which is designed for midsize project-driven organisations.
The new offering features a role-specific dashboards that give people a comprehensive view across their organisations, while its quick query feature provides predesigned search options to find information, and the ability to send documents, within Dynamics SL to customers and vendors.
The company said that the Dynamics SL 2011 extends IT investments by supporting integration with Microsoft Project Server 2010, SharePoint 2010, Office 2010, SQL Server 2008 R2 and Dynamics CRM through Web Services.
The integration with Project Server 2010 brings together project management and project accounting by adding functionality that reduces redundant data entry and provides synchronisation of project and accounting information, and the creation and viewing of budgeting and net profit information.
In addition, interoperability with SharePoint 2010 allows people to access information from virtually anywhere, and adapt to specific project needs.
The company said that the Dynamics SL 2011 will be available in the second quarter of 2011 in English in the US, Canada, the Caribbean and Puerto Rico.
