What You Missed At Convergence – Microsoft Dynamics GP Roadmap and Strategy
Microsoft hosted their annual premier business event, Convergence, on March 16-20 in Atlanta, Georgia. At this year's conference, the focus was on how the Microsoft Dynamics solutions we are all familiar with will come together with Microsoft's productivity tools (Office 365, SharePoint, Lync, etc.) and its Azure cloud platform.
Microsoft's new focus is "empowering every person and every organization on the planet to achieve more." If that is not a lofty enough goal, they also announced three bold ambitions as their guiding principles.
Create more personal computing. This translated into a theme of mobility with an emphasis on security and control. No matter what platform or what device you are using, you should get a seamless experience.
Reinvent productivity. This focuses on improving business processes through communication and collaboration and is evident in the tighter integrations with the Microsoft productivity and social tools.
Build the Intelligent Cloud. Microsoft's cloud infrastructure, Azure, accommodates industry requirements with a robust data platform that will provide enhanced business intelligence.
Read our recap of how these initiatives have translated into major Microsoft Dynamics product recent releases and roadmaps going forward.
