Alliegro, Chris. Microsoft Business Solutions Product Roadmap Update. Directions on Microsoft. Feb. 16, 2004.

Discussion of Microsoft business solutions product roadmap. The FRx and Forecaster solutions relating to Great Plains, Solomon, Navision and Axapta are interesting as they demonstrate Microsoft analytic capabilities on the financial side of things which, depending on the actual implementation of "Project Green" in Longhorn timeframe as suggested in the article, may provide some benefit to non-financial apps running on top of Longhorn. All very far off and speculative but interesting nonetheless.
