The 100 most influential Microsoft Dynamics people?

You know these list from many other areas, the top 100 most influential industy leaders in New Jersey, the top 100 most beautiful couples in Hollywood and so on. But now there is one list that is more interesting for the readers here on - "Microsoft Dynamics Top 100 Influential People 2009" is online.

I found out about this after reading Brandon George's AX Blog today, and especially it surprised me see my own name listed as number 10. Yes you heard right the top 10.

The full top 10 list includes:

  1. Preben Damgaard
  2. Kirill Tatarinov
  3. Doug Kennedy
  4. Klaus Holse Andersen
  5. Mike Gillis
  6. Allison Watson
  7. Jesper Balser
  8. Adam Warby
  9. Thomas Olofsson
  10. Erik Ernst

If you don't know all the other persons on the list, then lookup the list. There's details about everyone. But being on a list with such "famous" people makes me feel very honored. What made me feel even more honored was actually I don't really know any of the editors of the list (Ashen Ali, Steven Alspberg, Wiraiwan Changhai,Trevor Ishmail, Callum Murray and Harry Patterson), and they are not really the most well known names on the user group. Here is what they wrote about the basic for creating the top 100 list:

  • How many people are affected in Microsoft Dynamics by their decisions.
  • How many people do they have regular contact with in the Microsoft Dynamics Community.
  • How long have they been involved in the Microsoft Dynamics Community.
  • How many certifications do they have.
  • How much positive feedback we got from our forums and voting phone lines.

I'm not really sure what forums/voting lines they are talking about, but maybe some knows.

The other members of DUG who made it to the list (and that I know) are :

  • 16 - David Singleton
  • 23 - Mark Brummel
  • 24 - Alex Chow
  • 25 - Luc Van Dyck (Mibuso owner)
  • 28 - Steven Weaver
  • 35 - Anna Perotti
  • 38 - Jörg Stryk
  • 45 - Alain Krikilion
  • 49 - Rene Gayer
  • 50 - David Roys (aka Gaspode)
  • 71 - Eric Wauters

Congratulations to everyone!

I must say that there are people on the list where it really surprises me that they are even on the list. And there are other people that I really think should have made it to the list. Just to mention a few:

  • Vjekoslav Babic (Navigate Into Success blog editor)
  • Michael Nielsen (C/SIDE developer - you met him on the Mibuso Conference)

But anyway I'm going to keep this website under investigation, they are also writting that the website is really under construction also.
