Share Article

Former CVP for Microsoft Dynamics ERP R&D joins Dynamics Podcast for his first interview since leaving Microsoft.

Dynamics Podcast is the world’s first podcast devoted to Microsoft Dynamics AX, CRM, GP, NAV and SL. The inaugural podcast was launched earlier this year and hosts Bob McAdam, of Dynamic Communities, and Todd McDaniel, of Dynavistics, enjoy the opportunity to interview key resources from the Dynamics community. In this special edition podcast, Hal Howard joins Bob and Todd and shares his knowledge and insight through this extended interview. Hal addresses why he left Microsoft, Project Green, the future of the channel and much more.

Hal is the former Corporate Vice President for Microsoft Dynamics ERP R&D, a position he left in July 2014 after working for Microsoft for twenty years. His responsibilities included leading the research and development teams for Dynamics AX, Dynamics GP, Dynamics SL and Dynamics NAV. Under his leadership, the team transformed and modernized all the products and expanded Microsoft Dynamics’ presence globally.

Prior to joining the business solutions unit in 2003, Hal worked on both Microsoft Exchange Server and Microsoft’s online services. He holds 8 patents for various technologies across these products and services. Today, it was announced that Hal Howard has been hired as the Executive Director at Dynamic Communities (DCI) starting next week.

“I’m excited that Hal Howard has joined the team at Dynamic Communities (DCI). Todd and I are both extremely pleased that his first, post-Microsoft interview is on Dynamics Podcast,” said Dynamics Podcast co-host, Bob McAdam. “In this great interview with Hal, we cover a wide range of topics, from his days at Microsoft to his plans now that he is back in the Dynamics space with DCI. We even ask some questions at the end about his life away from work and our standard ‘non-technical’ questions, as we do with all of our guests. The interview is a ton of fun all the way around and listeners will enjoy it, as well as learn a few things along the way. Without question, this is one episode of Dynamics Podcast that you do not want to miss. This is why we were happy to dedicate an entire episode to this interview.”

Members of the Dynamics user groups will have an opportunity to meet Hal Howard in St. Louis this October, as he will take an active role in hosting the user and partner communities at Summit and The Partner Connections Event 2014.
