I have been with Microsoft since 2002, but I have been with Dynamics even longer, starting out with a Dynamics NAV partner in 1992. I currently lead the Partner Programs team in the US Dynamics organization and look forward to keeping in touch with the US Dynamics Partner Community on this blog.
The Microsoft Dynamics CRM product management team has made some important adjustments to the upcoming Q2 and Q4 service updates.
Please review the announcement on the CRM Connection blog for specific information including a detailed FAQ.

We have recently wrapped another successful fiscal year at Microsoft, and I am impressed by the amazing work of your organizations.

As you know, our partner relationships are our most valued asset and we continue to look for ways to enhance our overall partner collaboration. During the week of July 9 we will be announcing additional program updates and we want to provide you with clear understanding to ensure you are able to fully understand and benefit from these modifications.

Partners can attend the in-person keynotes and sessions:
For partners not attending WPC, we strongly encourage you to attend:

Again, congratulations on FY12 and I look forward to an exciting FY13!
