Effective May 1, 2017, Microsoft Forecaster will no longer be offered on any of the Microsoft Dynamics GP price lists. The Protected List Price (PLP) for Microsoft Forecaster on Business Ready Licensing (BRL) and Module Based Licensing (MBL) customer accounts will be reduced to zero resulting in lower Enhancement Plan fees going forward. There will be no PLP reduction for Perpetual customers as unlimited Microsoft Forecaster Users were included in the Extended Pack.
Microsoft will continue to support Forecaster, a component of Dynamics GP, through the support end date of the purchased version of the GP product. Forecaster will be supported per the existing system requirements. For more information on the Microsoft Support Lifecycle policy, click here. Online Knowledge Base articles will continue to be available for an extended period of time.
Existing Forecaster customers can continue to use the functionality but should consider replacement solutions from existing Independent Solution Providers (ISV's). Alternatively, customers can work with their partner to determine their options.
This May 1, 2016, announcement provides partners with the 12-months' notice required pursuant to the Solution Provide Agreement (SPA).
