One of the most important aspects of installing Microsoft Dynamics is ensuring your systems and networks are up for the task. After all, a software solution can only be as powerful as the hardware that runs it, and forcing Dynamics GP to chug through ancient hardware won’t do much for your bottom line.

The best course of action before turning to GP 2013 is ensuring your systems are ready for the work, and to sit down with your IT department to prepare the network for the coming changes. It’s important that everyone understand what GOP needs to survive and thrive, and even more important that those needs are met before the implementation begins.

With that in mind, here’s what you’ll need in order to successfully implement and run GP 2013. Bear in mind that these are the minimum requirements, and that you’ll see better performance from stronger systems:
