Pacejet is gearing up to return to IRCE this June in Chicago after a great show last year. IRCE @ RetailX brings e-commerce businesses, retailers, and the technology together, highlighting all the ways a business can thrive in the growing digital age. We are excited to sponsor this event again this year and hope to meet some new partners and friends along the way.
Team Pacejet spent some time in Phoenix last week as a sponsor of the Microsoft Dynamics User Group Summit; we came away impressed. It's no secret that Office 365 cloud has been growing fast, Azure has rocketed into second place behind AWS, and Microsoft recently announced 19% year over year revenue growth (Microsoft rises on earnings beat). And with 50% more users attending Summit this year, it looks like Microsoft has found their cloud software mojo.
Because Summit is a Dynamics ERP users event with a complex business community running AX, NAV, and GP versions, it was not surprising to see competing priorities across platforms and concerns about moving from on-premise to cloud. But this year's unified 365 branding, growing maturity of the Dynamics Business Central cloud platform, and clear path from on-premise to cloud technology created evident enthusiasm in the user community. While it might seem counter-intuitive, Microsoft's experience in maturing their own cloud-based ERP is driving them to offer expanded enterprise solutions that can benefit users running any ERP.
