    Convergence is the premier Microsoft Dynamics customer event, and you play a vital part in hosting our customers at the event. While the focus is on customers for our week in New Orleans, we wanted to set aside time to greet all of the Microsoft Dynamics partners before the festivities kick in.

    The Convergence Partner Only Event is scheduled to be held on Sunday, March 17, 2013 at the Hilton Riverside, New Orleans, LA. We will be hosting an Executive Q&A followed by a Partner Reception from 5:00-8:00PM hosted with appetizers and beverages so you make the most of this networking opportunity.

    The live Q&A session is your opportunity to get your strategic questions answered and validated. To have your questions included in the session please send your questions to us no later than February 15 to the MBS Events Inbox. The Q&A session will only be as useful and impactful as the questions you submit, so please take a few moments to think of how the Microsoft Dynamics Partner Team can support your most critical and strategic business questions.

    This event will be open to Microsoft Dynamics partners and Microsoft team members only. Use this time to connect with Microsoft team members, including the Microsoft Dynamics senior leadership team as well as to establish connections with your fellow partners.

    Have Your Solution Certified for Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013

    • 0 Comments

    This announcement was posted to PartnerSource last month right before the holidays so I’m sharing it here in case you missed it.

    Microsoft Dynamics is proud to announce that we are ready to begin taking registrations from all partners who wish to have their solution Certified for Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013.

    Solutions that are Certified for Microsoft Dynamics (CfMD) have demonstrated development quality and compatibility with the Microsoft Dynamics product on which they run. This certification represents a significant step in elevating the standard for partner-developed software solutions for industry-specific business applications.

    For the past five years, there has been a single set of requirements for partners to certify their solutions; however, with the evolution of partner solutions from being primarily on-premise to a mix of on-premise and cloud solutions, we realized that a single set of requirements does not fit for all partners. With the launch of Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013, Microsoft is announcing the availability of two separate tracks for partners to certify their solutions.

    For more information and details access the complete announcement on PartnerSource.
