MS Spruces Up Dynamics

This week, the Dynamics faithful, largely resellers and customers, flocked to sunny San Diego to learn how to sell and use the line of ERP software, and to see what's new in the world of Microsoft enterprise apps.

Many of the new programs are aimed at recruiting resellers and helping them to, er, sell the software. But there are also new versions of the software, which unfortunately still represents three to four largely overlapping tools.

Microsoft also showed off some new client tools that work off of Office and SharePoint, not only making it easy for clients to use the software, but -- with low pricing -- easier to buy, as well.
