Reflections on AXUG Summit 2008: Hints About Microsoft's Investment and Product Plans for Dynamics AX
As a first-time participant, I attended the AXUG Summit 2008 last month with a number of preconceptions. Given that Microsoft Dynamics AX is relatively new to the U.S. market, and that American sales, according to Microsoft, were the lowest of the four Dynamics lines, I thought attendance would be low. My second thought was that because AX is a "young" ERP solution, that the problems and issues expressed by users would be many and voiced with intensity.
Well, I was surprised on both fronts. There were roughly 300 AX users in attendance, as compared to GPUG Summit 2008, whose total attendance (users and partners) was about 120.
