Convergence 2012 was the largest Microsoft Dynamics event in history and it just keep growing. This year was an international event, with over 10,000 attendees. This includes Microsoft Dynamics AX, NAV, GP, SL and CRM users and reselling partners plus companies in the ERP software evaluation process. Add to that the nearly 300 companies exhibiting add on products for Microsoft Dynamics and the crowd of Microsoft executives and industry analysts.
Kevin Turner (COO, Microsoft) and Kirill Tatarinov, (President, MBS Division, Microsoft) presented the opening keynote to give attendees a vision on the future of Microsoft Dynamics. General Colin Powell closed the event with one of the best presentations I have ever been privileged to attend.
As always there were hundreds of concurrent training sessions plus hands on labs, interactive discussions, customer panels, roundtable discussion groups and receptions.
On the last day of the event Kevin Turner, (Vice President, Dynamics Partners, Microsoft) announced that Microsoft Dynamics Convergence 2013 will be held in New Orleans, LA from March 18-21, 2013.
I personally feel that anyone who is evaluating the investment into a new ERP system should take the time to attend the vendors user convention. You get more insight and information in a few days than you could get in several weeks worth of demo’s and due diligence. You can talk to real users, real developers, and I believe you can literally tell from the overall feeling or “vibe” of the people around you if this is a product you want to entrust your business to.
So if you will be evaluating new ERP or CRM software in 2013 we invite you to attend Convergence 2013 with us in New Orleans.
The city of Houston and the event coordinators and staff of Convergence 2012 were fantastic and we look forward to a great Microsoft Dynamics Convergence 2013 convention in New Orleans.
But for those of you that don’t want to wait that long, or don’t want to travel that far, attend our local “
