Summit Down Under: Dispatches from Summit Australia 2019

The inaugural Summit Australia 2019, focusing across all Dynamic Communities User Groups, attracted a very impressive number of attendees. With over 70 sponsor attendees, 140 partner attendees, and over 400 users, it was great to see that the Dynamics Users in Australia embraced this event to interact with their peers and ISV’s like Data Masons EDI. Summit Australia offered education on all versions of Dynamics 365, AX, CRM, GP, NAV, Power BI, PowerApps, and Microsoft Flow. This event provided focused learning and networking as users gained instrumental solutions for their everyday system challenges and larger organizational goals. Summit is well known as a premier user-centric experience with credible peer-to-peer knowledge exchange at its core, and Australia was no exception.

At the Keynote on Wednesday, August 21, the Business Applications Lead for Australia, Michael O’Keefe, shared information about the strategy and roadmap for Microsoft Business applications and innovations coming with the 2019 Wave 2 release of Dynamics 365 and the Power Platform. Microsoft business applications are transforming the customers’ business by delivering intelligent insights of every aspect of their organizations, putting AI into the hands of their employees and helping them take control of their experiences and applications to support their core business processes. shutterstock_633513077_conferenceaudience

This showed a great parallel with how we at Data Masons empower the Dynamics business users to only focus on critical EDI related issues using our Management by Exception functionality as well as providing business users access to EDI information inside of D365 using our Transaction Lifecyle Explorer (TLE).

 

What we take away from Summit

For ISV’s like Data Masons, it was great to speak with customers and to hear about the challenges they face with their day-to-day business processes. Over the years we’ve seen an increase in the use of ISV’s by Dynamics users, especially the ISV solutions that are tightly integrated with the ERP. Users realize that limiting the number of customizations they have embedded in the ERP will make ERP upgrades less difficult. With Microsoft One Version initiative, it’s important to minimize the impact ISV code will have on D365 updates.

The overall conclusion from the partners, ISV sponsors, and most importantly the Dynamics users is that this was a great event. With over 100+ sessions across the different Microsoft Dynamics ERP systems, Summit Australia brought together the largest gathering of Microsoft Business Applications users and partners for education and networking. Technical experts shared their specific knowledge and expertise to help Dynamics Users make the most of their current Microsoft Business Applications software.
