Microsoft Convergence 2011 - The Aftermath
Well, we came, we saw and we conquered - Microsoft Convergence 2011. (Conv11)
The we of course, is partners, customers and of course Microsoft. This year's event was the second larget ever Convergence, with over 9,300+ attending. The GWCC in Atlanta is a Huge place. Walking from building A, B & C means you got in a 5k everyday!
Maybe the 5k statement is a little bit of a stretch to the reality, however your feet sure felt like it! I would say, the real complaint I would have with this years session, was the horrible keynote speech seats. Anyone at the event planning team from Microsoft hearing this? I'm not the only one who thought so... go read the tweets!
Beyond that physical, and very personal, lasting affect, the overall conference was a huge hit. So much information, so many points of interest, and so much news to cover. The biggest focus of news, was around what we all expected to the build up of this event, that is:
- Microsoft Dynamics ERP Cloud
- Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012
- Microsoft's BI Story
With that, you have so much content to review already, that was generated as part of the Microsoft Dynamics AX Technical Conference earlier this year.
To start, make sure and read the Technical Whats New, located here.: What's New for Developers in Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012
With so much to cover, look here as now that we have reached public beta with AX 2012, I can now dive into the product with you as we prepare for the larget launch of any Dynamics product in the Microsoft family this year.
That's all for now, I also have some great interviews with Kees H. and Lachlan C. from Microsoft, some partner reviews, interviews with Doug K. and Hal H. coming up, as well as continued focus on all things Dynamics. So check back often! Till next time!
P.S. Conv12 = Houston, TX!
