  • How local is your local Microsoft Dynamics?

    I still do not have my settings right to get informed on any changes on PartnerSource. Luckily, however, I am having a network that every now and then does the job for me. So what's up, Doc? Have a look here . MS is asking us to give " feedback on the linguistic quality of your local product ". Not sure if I was one of the triggers to this (of course I would like to think I was ), but sure enough it's a good opportunity to help MS understand how we think about this. Call for Action Should…

  • Some Notes on "Enable for Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server"

    Through one of my German colleagues I stumbled over the Enable for Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server feature. One I hadn't be aware of it before.

  • Application Object Lock in R2

    As my role is not so much focused on programming anymore I hadn't been in the position to really experience the new "developer updates" of R2 so far. Gladly I accepted the invitation to present some of these updates during our 2nd DDC event . Presenting matters to an audience that is as much (or even more) enthusiastic and eager as yourself always delivers something in return, likewise questions raised and additions made. And not in the least also the things I encounter during preparing the whole…
