Microsoft Convergence 2.0
In order to help its active and future clients navigate between all available solutions, in January, Microsoft announced a serious turn for Convergence, its annual event regarding Microsoft Dynamics. Those familiar with this venerable event will have noted an important change in the conference content as well as the targeted audience. Newcomers arrive just in time for this fresh breath that will allow Microsoft to reach a new target while strengthening its position as a technologies leader.
Indeed, while keeping Microsoft Dynamics at the center of its strategy, Microsoft is now calling on all business leaders, key decision-makers and the most forward-looking professionals in technology to make a difference, and reinvents this annual meeting, now named Microsoft Envision! By concentrating on the issues and challenges specific to their industry, those leaders will be able to ensure the success of their business with a strategic advantage following this conference.
