The most important NAV events in 2018

We’ve just finished amazing NAVUG Summit in Nashville and got all confirmation about NAV future as SaaS and on-prem options. But in this period we can start to make a plan for the next year about the most important events, because almost all of them are already announced.

First in the spring 2018, we will have Directions Asia in Bangkok in period March 15 – 16. By my opinion, this event will be very important to attend, because Dynamics 365 ‘Tenerife’ is planed for this spring.

After that, one month later we will move to Europe to Summit EMEA in Dublin, Ireland in period from April 24th to 26th.

Later this year after summer, on the fall 2018, we will have another well known conferences. First we will start with Directions NA, this time in beautiful California, in San Diego between September 30 and October 3.

This time, NAVUG Summit will come before Directions EMEA, and it will be in October 15-18 at sunny Arizona in Phoenix.

And on the end, one month after North America premiere, we will have Directions EMEA, this time in Hague in Netherlands. It will be held in period October 31 – November 2.

Of course, we have one more very important – NAV TechDays, but we still don’t know when it will be the next year.

But if you want to plan all Dynamics important conferences (these four and even more), you can open my page with Dynamics conferences with all details.

My sessions on this fall conference season

This fall Dynamics NAV conference season will start soon, in two months and it is the last moment to register on conference you planned to go. This season we expect thick events schedule and officially season will start in Orlando on Directions NA at September 17th. If you need the full list of Dynamics conferences, you can find here.

I’ll have my session on three of these conferences. First I’ll start with Directions NA, then continue with Directions EMEA and finish my season on NAVUG Summit.

I’ll have the same session on Directions NA and Directions EMEA – ‘Project Management Methodology in Dynamics 365 BE Implementation‘ and I already wrote about this topic.

My first session will be third day of Directions NA – September 19th at 3:15pm. As I said, I’ll have the same session on Directions EMEA, and it will be at the first day of conference, after Keynote – October 4th at 11:15am. After these two conferences where I’ll have soft skills topic (project management), I’ll have more technical topics on NAVUG Summit, starting from October 11.

My topics will be how to use Flows with NAV, where I’ll show not only technical topic, but also practical example how and where to use it. And then, I’ll have topic about variations in Manufacturing in NAV, where I’ll try to transfer my experiences in a lot of Mfg implementations. Schedule is published, but it will be changed for sure. I know this, because I need to provide two sessions in the same moment 🙂 … and I know myself, I cannot do it 🙂

See you there…

My presentations from Directions conferences

Directions EMEA was finished one week ago. Ten days before, we finished with Directions NA conference. Both of these conferences were amazing and it was an honor to attend on them and to have some presentations.

After these presentations, people who attended ask me to get these presentations. I know that both of Directions will publish these presentations, but in the mean time, I want to give you everything I prepared.

On the following link, you can get all three presentations:

  • DirectionsNA – Water-Agile-Fall methodology and NAV implementation
  • DirectionsNA – Choosing the best possible Azure platform for NAV
  • DirectionsEMEA – Choosing the best possible Azure platform for NAV

Thank you for being on my sessions and see you the next year in Orlando and/or Madrid. If you have some additional questions, do not hesitate to ask (you can use direct messaging on blog). Cheers.

Dynamics 365 Finance Release Date

Today on NAVUG Summit, we finally got a release date of new Dynamics 365 Finance (ex Project “Madeira”). Dynamics 365 Finance will be available at November 1st.

It will be available just one week after general availability of NAV 2017. But, this availability will be for US and Canada market. I’m still not sure, but I expect Dynamics 365 Finance for Europe market in Q1 or Q2 next year. I cannot wait this moment because I strongly believe this is a product which will make a huge impact on global ERP market.

OK, tomorrow is new day and the start of new conference – Directions EMEA. We will wait and I’m sure we will get some new interesting things from beginning.

NAV Between Two Directions

I didn’t write so much in the last few days. I was on a small vacation after Directions NA. Now I’m waiting my flight and I just heard my flight is delayed. It will be a long trip and because of that I’ve found some time for writing on the Vegas airport.

Directions NA has just finished and I think we got two fabulous products – NAV 2017 and Dynamics 365 Financials. OK, we are still waiting the final releases, but we could see almost everything about them. And I’m writing “Dynamics 365 Financials”, not “Project Madeira”, because few days ago I saw new name in my solution. That means we will not use Project “Madeira” name in the future.

Looks fine and I’ll use to use this new name. And what we got with this. Generally we got the new product based on the same source code as NAV 2017, but I’m sure they will be absolutely different products in the future; they will have only the same father and mother 🙂 And with Dynamics 365 we cannot continue with the standard customizations; that means we will must use extensions and we have to use to use extensions in the future, not only because Dynamics 365 – because of NAV as well.

OK, there are a really more and more interesting things about these two products and I’ll start to write about them from tomorrow when I arrive to home. But in the meantime, we are expecting Directions EMEA in only 9 days and we will see everything about that once more and I’m sure hear something new again. I’ll have one session on Directions EMEA with the same topic as on Directions NA – how to choose the best Azure platform for NAV. See you there in nine days.

And yes I forgot, the next Directions NA will be again in Orlando, but this time at the JW Marriott Orlando Grande Lakes at September 17th-20th. Bye Chandler for now and I hope, see you there the next year.

My Sessions on Directions NA and EMEA

Few days ago, I wrote about new Directions NA and EMEA. Now I can announce my sessions. I’ll have sessions on both of these Directions.

Directions

First, about Directions NA, I’ll have two sessions. First session is about Azure and NAV, i.e. How to choose the best possible Azure platform for NAV. This session will be on the end of first day (5:15-6:15pm).

Second session will be related with some soft skills and it will be Water-Agile-Fall methodology and NAV implementation. This session will be the first after Keynote at the second day (10:15-11:15am) and I hope, this topic is interesting enough to come so early :).

See you there.
