It’s Convergence time! What NAV sessions should you choose on Monday, March 16th?Posted: March 3, 2015
I’m thrilled to be attending Microsoft Dynamics Convergence for my 7th year in a row in 2015! As an experienced Convergence attendee, one question I get every year is: What NAV sessions should I attend? I always say, “Take advantage of EVERY session”, so this week, I’ll be sharing my NAV session picks for Convergence week to help you out.
Monday, March 16th
The Convergence Opening Keynote starts bright and early at 8:30, so make sure you’ve grabbed some breakfast beforehand and get a good seat. This year is especially notable with the Keynote being done by Microsoft’s new CEO, Satya Nadella, but I look forward to the inspiration we all take away from powerful future looking demonstrations, strategic messaging, and the feeling of community that are the hallmarks of this grandiose session to start off the week.
The NAV General Session follows at 11:00 and this year we’ll see some new faces and hopefully some new demos! This is a great session to get a better feel for the new release cadence of the product and what changes are coming for all of us. Prepare to be inspired as Microsoft shares success stories with us of customers already using the newest version released only six months ago.
After a break for lunch and some networking at the industry-based roundtables, at 2:00 attend Why customers choose to implement Microsoft Dynamics NAV on Microsoft Azure. This session promises some customer insights as to “what they have gained by running their business solution in the cloud”.
The 3:30 time slot is a tough one with Marketing Provocateur Seth Godin doing a session up against NAV Provocateur Freddy Kristiansen. As much as I love Seth Godin, if I were a developer, I’d be headed over to the session on Developing in Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2015 to see what Freddy’s got up his sleeve this year!
Round out the day at 5:00 with a Tips and Tricks session on Business Insight for Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2015 to see some great examples of interoperability between NAV and Microsoft Office including more than seven specific examples of NAV working hand in hand with other applications.
The Convergence Experience Reception begins at 6:00. Make sure to attend – you’ve earned it after a full day of learning and it’s a great place to chat with all the new people you’ve met today!
Keep following Dynamics NAV Financials during Convergence week, March 16 – 19. I’ll be live blogging and tweeting the entire event to keep you all in the know about what’s going on in the world of Microsoft Dynamics NAV!
