First the good news: the parties are on at Microsoft's new Envision conference in early April in New Orleans. If you can't party in the Big Easy, why attend? Two major regular events of Microsoft's Convergence and Worldwide Partner Conference are planned—Rock N' Rave and the Randy and Andy Party. Envision will be held April 4-6 and that's nine weeks away and hmm, no speakers have been announced other than executives from Microsoft. Reports are there are no Dynamics break-out sessions planned and the agenda so far simply shows there will be breakouts in three categories: Business trends and themes; Industry trends; and Leadership in key business roles.

Coldplay By Nababan - Own work, CC BY 3.0One of my friends gave his opinion about cats recently. "Why should I feed and take care of something that has nothing but disdain for me? I have my relatives for that." ... A recent conference promoted that there would be a Navy Seal appearing. Well, the little hat was cute, but I thought balancing the ball on his nose was kind of passé ... Something I ate last week at the Acumatica conference disagreed with me. It won.

Andy Hafer, Dynamic CommunitiesMicrosoft's decision to end Convergence and replace it with a conference called Envision has set a lot of parts in motion. Overall, Envision, aimed at business leaders, is a bit of a Dynamics AX show with those catering to three other ERP packages not pleased. The AX crew seems happy, although one report that the number of user attendees is down sharply, won't please anybody if true. Josh Richards, marketing director for Merit Solutions, notes, "We do believe we will have more access to, and higher quality conversations with, organization's C, VP, and director levels," he says. He also reminds people Envision is not a Dynamics-centric conference.
