AX Partner Connections (AXPC) Jump Starts AXUG Summit 2012

If you’re part of the Dynamics AX Partner Community and in Seattle, I hope to see you at the AX Partner Connections (AXPC) event tomorrow, October 16th at the Washington State Convention Center. As part of the AXUG Summit 2012 agenda, this particular event will feature Dynamics AX 2012 readiness, roundtable discussions for VARs and ISVs, and networking opportunities for all of us partners and with members of the Microsoft Dynamics AX team.


Not only am I excited to attend this event, but I’m also looking forward to participating in one of the roundtable discussions. Fellow Data Masons colleague and ERP/ EDI expert Glenn McPeak will also be joining the panel of roundtable participants

You can view the complete AXPC event agenda at http://axpartnerconnections.com/annualconference/, but the following are highlights of what to expect from the Roundtable Breakout Discussion Topics:

Dynamics AX 2012 Readiness – Room 604 – 10:00 to 12:00pm
We will look at the Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats of the Partner Readiness eco-system. We will focus on your satisfaction, not only from your partnering relationship with Microsoft, but also AX Partner Connections, AXUG, and any other resources that influence your organization’s success with Microsoft Dynamics AX. There are many programs in place today to gain product knowledge and technical competency. Additionally, there are aspects that provide networking and community interaction. What is helpful? What is not? What is a success and should be emphasized? What’s missing and needs to be introduced? This session will result in feedback and action items to influence any necessary change and growth of channel resources.
