Microsoft Convergence 2013: Day 2 Recap

Microsoft Convergence 2013: Day 2 Recap

The second day of Microsoft Convergence 2013 has come and gone and we just closed down the open bar we had right inside the booth. It’s been a busy and exciting week in the Big Easy. Here are some of the quick takeaways from the show so far:

  1. Microsoft Dynamics customers need integration as much as anyone. This isn’t surprising given the amount of data modern companies are generating. Even for those organizations using a complete stack within one ecosystem need faster, more agile ways to automate their business processes and synchronize their data.
  2. Customers and partners continue to comment that there have been limited integration options to support both Microsoft and non-Microsoft systems, such as SAP, Oracle, Salesforce, and various database standards. Some solutions were architected only to support a single ecosystem, leaving companies and Microsoft partners without the necessary integration between their Microsoft applications and other mission-critical applications with relevant data.
  3. Microsoft customers want ease of use, great performance, and enterprise scale when they consider integration. Decisions on an integration solution should focus on the long term, and companies realize they need to make decisions that are future-proofed.
  4. In an ecosystem where success is heavily driven by partners, both system integrators and resellers are responding very positively to an integration solution that performs under high volumes of data and delivers easy to configure connectors and rapid deployment times.
  5. Demos of our new connector suite for Microsoft Dynamics are drawing “ooo”s and “ahh”s. We’re excited to offer simplified integration between Microsoft Dynamics CRM/GP/AX/SL/NAV and SAP, Salesforce, Oracle EBS, and many others.
