Amplify: GPUG Organizes New Microsoft-Led Dynamics GP Event for End Users

Microsoft Dynamics GP users felt abandoned by Microsoft's shift from Convergence to Envision as its mainline event in 2016. Gone are the direct access to Microsoft and utilitarian sessions. In its place, Envision offers "State of the Industry" content, delivered by Microsoft execs and subject matter experts.

The launch of the new Amplify event, put on jointly by Microsoft and GPUG in Anaheim, California, May 23-26 seeks to fulfill the GP community's loss of Convergence.

Someone listened

I really hope this succeeds big time for GPUG and the Fargo-based folks. No offense to the CRM and AX folks but it will be great getting back to a more GP-centric environment so we do not have to sort through the solutions and input of people not in our environment.

I am not a "user" so it is difficult for me to attend a user-led conference. I depend more on information from developers and ISV partners to do my job. This new event looks more like what I need.

Thank you Microsoft and GPUG for giving us GP folk another chance.
