I called it the “Breakfast of Champions,” but officially it was the Microsoft MVP Breakfast in Tampa. Together with Fastpath, Data Masons had the pleasure of hosting many of the Microsoft MVPs for the morning before heading off to sessions. Knowing how much knowledge these MVPs hold, I reached out to them last week to see which sessions they attended and would recommend to the community.
Here’s the MVP session recommendation list:
[Mark Polino] "I really enjoyed Microsoft Sr. Program Manager Kevin Racer’s session on deploying the web client for small companies. I think there is a fear of the web client, that it’s big and complicated and requires a lot of resources. Kevin showed how approachable it is for small companies.”
[Belinda Allen] “’Power Up Your BI Capabilities with Power View in SQL Server 2012’ presented by Miguel Lozano is no doubt the session I recommend. He showed Power Q&A, which I feel will absolutely change BI as we know it today. I just loved this session!”
[Gretchen Opferkew] “Most of the great sessions were roundtables, which offered users the opportunity to connect and gain wisdom from each other. However, I recommend that all the XRM geeks check out the CRM Confessions sessions on XRM in the public sector (Celia Gust from Carver County) and higher education (Scott Guthrie from Winona State University). [Leslie Vail] “The most valuable session for me was presented by Belinda Allen about BI. She introduced me to a new perspective on how to approach clients about possible BI engagements. Her session was very thought provoking and has changed the way I think about BI. “
If an MVP is recommending it, you know it has to be good! Catch of the replays of these sessions and others on the AXUG Collaborate site, GPUG Collaborate site, NAVUG Collaborate site and CRM Collaborate site. If the presentations aren't yet posted, they should be coming soon. Thanks to all the MVPs for their continued support of the community!
