Jan Silleman started off with an introduction, where the most interesting thing was the screensaver . Now, hold on … it IS interesting. The Microsoft Dynamics NAV Screensaver is a very nice tool to stay informed with the latest Dynamics NAV News. Now there is a new version (v2) with a few new features:
Now, the session really kicked off with Eva (forgot her last name) with "Expand reach with New Business Opportunities". This topic handled about the new program "Certified for Microsoft Dynamics". A few bullet points on what this is:
So, If you have a solution, with quite a few customers … get certified!
The "marketing fluff" (sorry for my sarcasm) continued with Carsten Wulff with his part 'How to successfully build a channel'. An LS Retail guy who shares his experiences (and do a little bit of marketing for himself). I tried to pick some interesting points on his presentations … but I failed.
But next part should be a very interesting session: "Software as a service" by Julio De Villasante Guzman.
As we all know, it is a market that is growing very fast. Lots and lots of bla bla (I even started answering my mail during the session). Sorry, guys, I know this isn't interesting for you .. But it wasn't for me either .
After a bunch af other marketing fluff and Q&A with Mogens Elsberg, we got a demo of 5.1 by Darren Laybourn. He went very fast. It was hard to keep up. These are a number of things he showed:
Indeed, he didn't show the 3D Graphical tool on NAV anymore ... . I wonder why... .
Time for more "marketing fluff":
Mogens Elsberg announced the new NAV based product: Microsoft Dymanics Enterpreneur Solution, with these properties:
Global Phased roll-out
Now, Guys, THIS is going to be nice. This is the thing where many dealers have been waiting on. All small customers (up to 5 users) are going to have a nice out-of-the box NAV based solution. I hope this will kick off real soon.
No, finally, time to sit on ice...
I don't know when the screensaver will be launched ... they just said that it's comming.
For the sharepoint client: it will work for all Page objects... The page object is going to give meta data to the dynamics client. They built a web part that is also reading this meta data to display on sharepoint. As simple as that!
Hey Waldo, did they say when the new screen saver was going to be launched?
Does the sharepoint portal webpart work with all NAV objects "as is" or do you need to build objects like with the current Employee Portal?
Interesting stuff. Thanks!
