David Meego - Click for blog homepageMike Morton (Vice President, Dynamics 365 Business Central at Microsoft) has clarified the Microsoft Dynamics GP Lifecycle after his comments at the GP General Session during the Community Summit 2022 conference.

#GPUG Partners: Ignore User Groups at your own peril

David Meego - Click for blog homepageAfter attending the User Group Summit Australia conference in Melbourne in August 2019, I feel compelled to write another opinion article.

The conference was fantastic with over 600 attendees for the inaugural event with lots of great local and international presenters as well as many exhibitors and sponsors.
