Post Convergence 2011 Recap

It’s been a whirlwind here at the office following Convergence 2011. This has probably been one of our busiest shows just judging by the amount of booth traffic we experienced at our own booth and what we saw at others. Hopefully this is an indication of where the economy is heading as more people who stopped by were looking for solutions to buy and help their business grow. Sure, the bike we had on display and were raffling away didn’t hurt either.

We had a great time connecting with partners and customers throughout the four day experience, especially at our sponsored party, Rock-N-Rave, which was an awesome time as usual. Please check out all of the great pictures at the Rock-N-Rave Facebook page here and also find out about upcoming events.

Big announcements at the show included the announcement of Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 which is set for general availability in August 2011. At the opening keynote Microsoft even displayed how it could be integrated with Microsoft Kinect for motion controls on the shop room floor in a manufacturing scenario. Another announcement at one of the group sessions was Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010 R2. New features for this latest release include multi-company excel reports, creating of new document templates in Word format, and additional analytical SRS reports are just a few big enhancements.

Overall it was a great show that provided many good memories for us and Convergence 2012 in Houston!
