2013 Editorial Calendar's 2013 Editorial Calendar summarizes the specific topics we plan to cover at different points in the year.  Setting specific times for these topics helps us to do interesting things like organize webcasts, help our contributors plan their writing schedule and develop ideas with more lead time, and recruit new contributors with expertise in these subject areas, and work with advertisers for optimal alignment.

The topics in this list will not be exclusive; they serve as a guide for our writing staff and contributors.  Each of the topics is left intentionally broad and can be explored from a variety of angles.  Unless otherwise specified, each topic could be applied to any of the following categories of articles:

  • Business Skill & Strategy
  • Industry-specific
  • Technical considerations for a Dynamics product - AX, GP, NAV, SL, CRM
  • Product considerations for a Dynamics product - AX, GP, NAV, SL, CRM
  • Research and analysis

And if you have a topic of interest but do not see it here, we'd be happy to discuss it further and figure out ways to make it work with our other editorial plans.
