Conv12 - Here we come!
I hope everyone has had a great week so far. Personally I've been super busy, and getting ready for next weeks Conv12! It's packed with a host of great sessions, materials, speakers, training & network opportunities. You can get full access to all the sessions, and tracks by going to the following resource.: Convergence 2012 - Session Catalog, Content, Tracks and more!
One of the great parts about Convergence, specifically for me, is the involvement of AXUG, and it's DayOne Events. These are always some really great sessions, round tables, panels and the like. Specifically I will be involved in leading, or help leading in the following session at Convergence.
UBAX03 - AXUG Special Interest Group (SIG) Roundtable Discussion: Software Architects
"Join fellow Microsoft Dynamics AX technical gurus who share the need to better understand how development and infrastructure in Microsoft Dynamics AX can be administered and utilized to support your company's needs. Listen, learn, and share your experiences around maintaining the environment, delivering quality X++ solutions, and how best to manage the Microsoft Dynamics AX performance with your database."
This event already has a good amount of people registered, and I will be helping host this session, along with some other great, and very active AXUG community contributors, including: Mike Simms, Joel Pietrantozzi, Jason Thorpe & Christian Fordham.
Right after that, we have the next section I will be involved in.:
UBAX14 - AXUG Special Interest Group (SIG) Roundtable Discussion: Business Intelligence & Reporting
" In this exciting session, join fellow Microsoft Dynamics AX users who share the need to better understand how best to utilize Microsoft Dynamics AX reporting to meet user needs. This AXUG SIG breakout session will discuss the various approaches and techniques that users are utilizing to meet reporting requirements, including both standard Dynamics AX and SSRS approaches."
This event should be a great one as well, and once again I will be joining with other community giants, to help make this a wonderful event like: Mike Simms, Joel Pietrantozzi & Jason Thorpe
Directly related to the above session, keep your eye open, and sign up for my upcoming three part series I'm putting on through the AXUG Academy BI with Dynamics AX 2012: Options, Development, and Delivery I will cover more about that series, right after Convergence. So if your attending the BI & Reporting SIG at AXUG DayOne, then joining us for the three part series will carry over and help you create a true BI story for your company, using AX 2012. Further, I will dive into the upcoming SQL Server 2012 BI abilities & AX 2012 RC2
Moving right along into the week at Conv12, and along these same topic lines, for both Monday and Tuesday, I will facilitate two "Birds of a Feather: Microsoft Dynamics AX" sessions. These will be open discussions, specifically focused around BI & Reporting for Microsoft Dynamics AX.
If you are a regular reader of my blog, you understand that BI is one of my expertise, and specifically a topic in which I believe a lot of customers never fully get the full benefit of. There is a lot of value that can be added through understanding the BI as it relates to Dynamics AX 2012. Having the knowledge of working with the right tools, for the right job, is critical is driving that value, through BI concepts.
Further, I will continue to post and dive into real world BI examples, and needs, with the goal, once again of driving the most value out of your existing AX investment.
Finally, I will close with there is going to be a lot going on at Convergence 2012, so make sure you have used your schedule builder, and get the most out of your visit. You can follow my tweets as I do live event coverage while at Conv12 at: @DynamicsERP. Well that's all for this post, I will have one more tomorrow, and then it's off to see everyone at Conv12. Further there will be plenty of blog post during, as well as post Convergence as we continue this Dynamics AX journey together. Till Next Time!
