Microsoft Convergence New Orleans 2013: Day 1

It’s day 1 of Microsoft Convergence New Orleans and it certainly promised to be an exciting one, since Mark Polino and I had on stage rehearsals for the first time – ever! So, it was just about fitting we meet for breakfast first thing in the morning then go find a quiet place for a couple of dry runs prior to our on stage rehearsal. We went to the ballroom area at the Hilton Hotel and found a space next to the main hallway leading to the ballrooms. Suffice to say, we had a lot of onlookers which made our practice very close to realistic. After all, we were only presenting in front of 5,000 people, so it could not hurt to have people walking by.

Once we did our dry run, we went to the Convention Center Hall E to get our wives registered for the event. The registration process was apparently going very smooth since there were no lines and attendees were picking up badges and bags at a very fast pace.

Next, it was time for our on stage rehearsal in Hall J. Once there, we had a chance to go up twice to finalize the little details of our presentation and get some final feedback from the Ovation team and Microsoft – I will remember not to dance around next time! Rehearsals were fairly quick so off we went to the speakers registration room to check in with Grace, Ace, and Trace… I know and I wasn’t even trying to rhyme it either.

Registration was quick so Mark went off to deliver his GPUG sessions, Sex, Lies and Refreshable Excel Reports and What to Know Before the Auditors Ask:  Risk Management and Controls in Microsoft Dynamics GP, the latter presented with Andy Snook. For me it was a rather quiet afternoon, so I returned to the hotel to clear my mind and work a bit on the General Session scripts.

I returned to the Convention Center for the Welcome reception at the Expo hall, where I had a chance to walk around the booths and say hello to some of my favorite ISVs in the channel.

Of course, you had the colorful Rockton Software booth (#1851), which resembles a really fun bar. There I caught up with Jim Pelikza, a fellow Atlanta resident.

It’s always fun to visit the folks over at Reporting Central, over at booth #1855, for whom it’s become a tradition to hand me down a nice jersey with my name on the back.

The Reporting Central Team

My friends over at AdvTrex (booth #2352) and their now very popular TitaniumGP product are always a joy to catch up with.

After strolling around for a while, I ran into my friends over at I.B.I.S Inc. (booth #2522), and fellow General Session presenter, Mark Polino.

IBIS Inc. Team

Needless to say, Polino is always a riot and nothing says riot more than this:

Got Mark? t-shirt

To be honest, you have to be out of your mind or deeply in-loved with Mark to wear this t-shirt and I am neither. However, I did get a kick out of it.

I also stepped over to the Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 Web Client booth where I ran into fellow co-presenters Daryl Anderson and Kevin Racer, and my old time friend Brian Roney. It was good to stop by and talk to these dudes as they are fun bunch.

I also caught up with Brian Graftaas, who currently the Program Manager for the Certified for Microsoft Dynamics GP program at Microsoft. Brian and I will be sitting down for an interview which I will release as a podcast upon my return from Convergence.

The Expo halls closed around 8:00 PM so it was time to go back to the hotel to catch the tail end of the Miami Heat vs Boston Celtics NBA game and get some rest for the big day ahead.

Until next post!

How to avoid giving sa password to Dynamics GP users

I am often asked this question by all the good IT managers – How can we minimize the usage of ‘sa’ with Dynamics GP ? Quite often I can jot down the answer specific to the user’s setup.

In the “ What to Know Before the Auditors Ask:  Risk Management & Controls in Microsoft Dynamics GP” today,  Andrew Snook from FastPath pointed to a whitepaper they have written on this very topic. Go check it out at http://www.gofastpath.com/newsroom/ctl/articleview/mid/444/articleid/29/fastpath-white-paper–minimizing-the-use-of-sa-in-microsoft-dynamics-gp.aspx

Here’s Mark and Andy all enthused in this fully booked session.

Virtual Convergence 2013 for when you can’t attend in person

David Meego - Click for blog homepage

This week the Microsoft Dynamics Convergence 2013 conference is being held in New Orleans, Louisiana, USA at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center (NOMCC). It started on Monday 18th March 2013 and continues to Thursday 21st March 2013.

If you are like me and unable to attend in person, they you don’t have to miss out on all the Convergence goodness as you can be an Virtual Attendee and watch many of the sessions via the interwebs.

Beginning today on Tuesday 19th March 2013 (this evening my time), Virtual Convergence will have live broadcasts and recordings of the keynote and general sessions as well as concurrent sessions.

For more info see the Microsoft Dynamics Convergence Blog:

 

While I am not there in person, I have many friends keeping me in the loop and also am following the blogs of the people who are there. I will be posting a summary of all the blog posts as a wrap up next week.

If you are there, don’t forget to attend the Support Debugging Tool session that Mariano is presenting. He will be showing off some great new features that will be available in the next build:

  • CSGP30 – The Microsoft Dynamics GP Support Debugging Tool
    on Thursday, March 21st from 2:30 pm – 3:30 pm

The Support Debugging Tool is the ultimate FREE tool for consultants, administrators and users to support and administer their Microsoft Dynamics GP systems.

Enjoy the conference.

David
