After two days at keynotes, meetings and more meetings at Microsoft’s Worldwide Partner Conference (WPC), we’re feeling better than ever about Tensoft’s focus these days. Between our long-time vertical industry focus, our commitment to the cloud, and our Gold ERP Competency, almost everything that we’re hearing here supports and validates our goals.
During Monday’s keynote session, Steve Ballmer cited a 20% compound annual growth rate over the past 10 years for the Dynamics product line. In the National Strategic Partner FY12 Kickoff meeting that we attended today, nationally managed partners were credited with driving a substantial portion of this growth.
In another meeting, a Microsoft executive noted that 25% of this year’s 15,000 WPC attendees are Dynamics partners - remarkably high considering all of Microsoft’s other product lines that partners represent.
As expected, there has been a lot of focus on the cloud this year. But, we’ve been pleasantly surprised by the focus on Dynamics, and glad that we made the effort to be at both WPC and Convergence in 2011!
