Quick Summary: Microsoft Convergence 2012, Day 4

It's the final day of the event.
Richard Knudson has a nice blog post which summarized the the following four important things from the event. 
  • Big data
  • Cloud
  • Social
  • CRM Anywhere
Richard mentioned that he will host a webinar on Wednesday April 4 to share some more details about the event.

Before we conclude the post, here are three more notes from myself. 
  • Metro and Windows 8 will have some big impacts on the future changes of Microsoft Dynamics CRM platform from user experience perspective. 
  • We might have a robust database engine that is big data ready, but CRM is not really there yet, which is a challenge ahead of us, in my humble opinion. 
  • Another thing that you should watch out is, we all know that we are going to have the cross-browser support in R8. What this brings to us is, we need to write JavaScript code that works for different browsers.  This is not an issue if we only use SDK API, however there are always cases that we need to do a little magic which is not achievable using the SDK API. This is where your talent comes into play.  
This concludes my notes of the event. It was definitely a fascinating event even I was not at the scene. I look forward to being there myself next year.
