Content Survey

Content Survey

As the premier event for the Microsoft Dynamics® Customer and Partner business community, Convergence is where opportunity and innovation meet to deliver real business value. It’s the chance to make key business connections and to discover the full potential of Microsoft Dynamics solutions.

Customers, along with their Microsoft partners, come to Convergence from all corners of the globe to experience everything that the event has to offer. Loaded with a wealth of informative sessions and other creative ways to learn, customers discover how to extend the power of their solution across all areas of their business. They also get a first look at new product releases and hear about future plans for their software. Convergence is the annual event where connections are generated, best practices are shared, and business relationships are built and renewed.

It is in that same spirit that we begin the process of creating Convergence 2013 by inviting our knowledgeable community to bring themselves forward as advisors from the field. For the first time, we’re launching a process with which Microsoft Dynamics customers can collectively help set the direction for the content contained in the breakout sessions. The information gathered through our Content Survey will serve as one of many touch points as our Track Owners work to deliver the sessions most valued by our Microsoft Dynamics audience.

This survey may take you 10 – 15 minutes to complete.
