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.
I would be amiss to not let you know about this blog post where eBECS shares their view on why WPC is 'unmissable' for Dynamics partner in their opinion:
WPC will be a great opportunity to get more insight into Satya Nadella's strategy for Microsoft and the opportunities it presents for the best partner channel in the industry. Join us at WPC to accelerate your business, and join us in building Business Solutions that are in a "category of one" leveraging all the assets that Microsoft and our partner ecosystem offer.
