Lodestar Attends Key Microsoft Partner & Customer Events
Princeton, NJ, July 24, 2018 – Lodestar associates recently attended Inspire, an annual gathering of over 12,000 global Microsoft business partners in Las Vegas, NV on July 16-18, 2018. A week later, additional work was done at the Business Applications Summit in Seattle, WA on July 23-24th, an annual gathering for 8,000 business customers, prospects, and partners to network and learn the latest about developments in Microsoft‘s Office 356, Dynamics 365, Azure, Power BI, Power Apps, and Flow product lines.
Because of client confidentiality issues, Lodestar CEO Dr. Tom Nelson commented only briefly, “Working in partnership with McorpCX, a San Francisco, CA-based customer experience consultancy, these events were ideal venues to explore issues such as Microsoft partner engagement and effectiveness, buyer’s journeys for complex business applications like Dynamics 365 for Sales, and what’s coming over the horizon in areas such as AI, IoT, data visualization, and predictive analytics”.
