The Microsoft MVP program gets some cosmetic lifting

MVP

Microsoft today announced that they are going to shrink the number of MVP categories existing so far..  Steve ‘Guggs’ Guggenheimer said hat Microsoft is going to move from 36 technical expertise areas to about 10, new, more broader categories, encompassing some 90 contribution areas.

For us Dynamics GP MPV’s this means that our number is going to grow significantly with the consolidation of all the Dynamics ERP product lines, and surprisingly ‘Project’ server (don’t really get that… ). The new Category would be labelled ‘Business Solutions’ (that’s not really a surprise and makes sense).

This means that from current 18 MVP’s the GP group counts today (David being the latest addition, for now showing up as Anonymous on the MVP site), the new Category will grow up to 212 (as per today). That’s over 10 times the number of members. Not saying this is bad, some other current groups having 100 times more members, after all the whole MVP program has over 4500 members today.

To the root question : is this good or bad ? We have an opportunity to start discussing those changes right away next week when over 50% of the Dynamics GP MVP’s will gather at an evening event in Reno during the GPUG Summit. It’s certailnly going to be an interesting debate, and as the MVP Summit in Seattle is in less than a month away.. it’s the right moment to talk about.

Meet you all next week #INreno15
Until next,
@GP_Beat
