Proud Uncle

I'm so proud of my niece, Guia del Prado, that I wanted to congratulate her in my blog for being featured in her schools website - University of Nevada, Reno : www.unr.edu .

She's currently the news editor for the campus magazine - Insight.

Convergence 2009 update

Just came back from Convergence 2009 - New Orleans and found this year quite a disappointment as I didn't see a lot of value to the seminars, GP ver 11 and the future of products around Dynamics GP.

Here are my updates this year:

1) GP ver 11 - The presenter in the kiosk didn't show a lot of functionality as she said they're still finalizing the list but I like the option of printing a form to Microsoft Word which many of us had been requesting.
2) FRx - No goods new here as Microsoft announced last year Management Reporter will replace it. I found that Management Reporter lacks some functionality including XBRL (I hope they've resolve this already), etc. FRx support end on December 2010.
3) Forecaster - The big question - PerformancePoint or Dynamics?
4) CRM - There were a few seminars showing the new integration between this product and Dynamics GP. One presenter said it can now compete with vendors like Scribe.

I'll post more later....
