Ron, Major stuff in R7 - there was drool all over the floor in Phil Joseph's sessions. But that's typical. (Those Paragon guys are sort of scary.) They also covered the upcoming and new enhancements to the current applications - the stuff can be checked on the support.mapics.com web site. They also spent a couple sessions covering the timeline for upcoming major stuff (CSM Kitting, etc). Major kudos are due to the handful of early R7 adopters who bled freely for the rest of us in cleaning up the implementations. Lots and lots of stuff on that, from MAPICS, from affiliates (Doug Bulla had an excellent session), and from the customers themselves. And MAPICS was really up front about the problems, and that they were fixed. No marketing fluff - the sessions were done by technoids. Really excellent. I took pages of notes. Dave Colvin had several excellent "how to performance tune Browser", covering R7 and R6 both (should also help on R5). Cool new support stuff (new ACSAPPLY options and such). The presentations will be available on the MAPICS web site soon (if not already). They expected about 900 attendees, they ended up with about 1,400. The place was packed. Seemed to be fairly evenly split between Syteline and MAPICS ERP for iSeries people. Lots of vendor stuff shown in the Expo Center. I personally thought this was one of the best conferences they've had. I attended sessions at every time period, and missed many that I would have liked to have seen. Unfortunately, I haven't figured out how to be in 4 places at once yet...... :) Dale Gindlesperger IT Manager/Special Projects Leader Fleetwood Folding Trailers, Inc. 258 Beacon Street Somerset, PA 15501 Ron <Ron_H@xxxxxxxxxx > To Sent by: mapics-l@xxxxxxxxxxxx mapics-l-bounces@ cc midrange.com Subject MPower - What was new and exciting? 06/10/2004 12:26 PM Please respond to MAPICS ERP System Discussion <mapics-l@midrang e.com> Wondering if those who were lucky enough to attend MPower would share what "new and exciting" developments were discussed at the conference?
