Why Attend BCUG/NAVUG Summit 2019 in Orlando

In a month, BCUG/NAVUG Summit in Orlando will start. There will be dozens of amazing lectures and if you are NAV or Business Central user, this event is probably something you must attend, especially if you want to continue with improving your knowledge.

I like to come back to this event every year as this is probably only one opportunity where you can get directly feedback from thousands of Dynamics users.

This time, I would try to explain why you should attend this amazing event using video message and I hope you will like it 🙂

Directions NA 2020 and what we heard

Directions NA 2019 has just finished and I’m writing this article in a plane on my way to home. It was great opportunity to meet 925 Dynamics professionals and not only from North America. It was amazing event and I’m happy because I had opportunity to speak here. We got a lot interesting information regarding Business Central Spring Release and to listen about experience of implementations of this solution here in US.

If you were there, you know what I’m talking about. If you were not be there, you can find all that news on Microsoft official document here. I’ll only emphasize some facts we hear from Jannik and Claus on a closing session as well as they will have a big impact on a future of BC.

  • In the future, ISV scenarios will include 15 objects for Team Members
  • From July 1st, we will get device license – CSP pricelist = 40USD
  • For On-prem transition to BC, user ratio is changed to 1:3 (for each concurrent user in NAV/GP user, they will get 3 named BC users) and this time this includes limited users as well
  • On-premises partners will get more internal users licenses
  • On-premises license will include one CAL for external accountant and one CAL for a system administrator, the same as we have in a subscription

If you read only these few facts, you can understand how important it is for partners and for clients as well.

We also heard that we will get new certification exams for Business Central functional consultants in FY20 as well as better differentiation through the Cloud Business Applications Competency and/or the Small and Mid-Market Cloud Solutions competency. Also, there will be secondary transition journey for clients who want to stay on-premises and to use cloud benefits or to migrate to the cloud (stay on BREP and purchase Midterm Offer).

And on the end, Directions NA 2020 (April 19-22) will be again in Orlando in Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress and for me it has a special place in my hearth, because in this place a few years ago, I had an opportunity to speak on Direction North America for the very first time.

My PPTs from Directions EMEA and NA

I’ve just published my Power Point presentations from both of Directions conferences. You can find presentations from Directions EMEA and Directions NA. I didn’t want to publish them earlier because Directions NA wasn’t closed.

Now, you can find all details from these two presentations and learn how to implement standard NAV solution in construction business. If you need some help about this, give me a question. If you want to know more about vertical solution for NAV in Construction, I will answer everything you need.

Directions NA 2015 has opened

Direction NA 2015 has opened yesterday in Orlando (Florida). This is one of the most important NAV conferences in America. There are about 600 attendees. Key note session by Microsoft was a bit different as on Directions EMEA. In the forefront, it was Microsoft Dynamics NAV Managed Service, a really amazing tool for managing your clients on the cloud.

Today we are starting with new sessions. You can find more (agenda, speakers, sponsors…) about this event on this link.

Be the First Who Passed the New NAV Exam

Just to be sure that you are not forgotten, new Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2015 will be launched in only two weeks.

If you attend to NAVUG Summit in Reno this October, you can be really the first who passed the new NAV exam and show your expertise in Dynamics NAV 2015 Core Application Setup. It is not too late to register yourself here.

If you will not attend NAVUG Summit, maybe you will be in Orlando later the same moth – October 25-28 on Directions NA. You will have the same opportunity and you can register yourself here. In this situation, you will not be the first, but one of the first for sure.

This exam is prepared by a large number of NAV experts all around the world and I think it is a good chance to check your knowledge about NAV 2015.
