All good things come to an end, and that’s exactly what seems to have happened with Convergence EMEA, the key Microsoft Dynamics conference in Europe. The news has hit hard with me; I’ve only attended it once, and now that it was to come so close to my hometown, it’s been cancelled.
As stated on official Convergence 2009 Vienna site, Microsoft has decided to change the approach to Convergence in EMEA, and instead of having a single conference for whole EMEA, Microsoft will organize a series of local events in selected EMEA markets.
The official site doesn’t provide much information about why this has been decided, apart from “customer and partner feedback”.
However, MSDynamicsWorld.com seems to have got more info somehow, and reports further details in their yesterday’s Microsoft Cancels Next Dynamics European Convergence Event “To Save Customers Money” head article.
I decided not to offer my opinion on this decision, so I end this short newsflash by quoting Douglas Adams: So long, and thanks for all the fish.
