BCUG/NAVUG Summit Phoenix delivers 180+ breakout sessions and offers attendees a personalized learning experience through tracks based on industry, job roles, product version - including Business Central, and level of experience.

In preparing to write an article on the value of the Dynamics Credentialed Professional Certifications and what it would take to help you recognize the value of this certification, I found the “5 Reasons Certifications Aren’t Worth It” by David Bolton[1]. David is correct in his assessment of why many certifications provide no value but his list also makes it easy for me to explain why Dynamics Professional Credentials are the exception. “Software Technology Moves Too Fast” – Knowledge that’s relevant today quickly becomes outdated. If I use the NAV Core Application Setup exam as an example, it is designed to test experience and knowledge of setups ...

Hi, data backups is one of the most missed features in d365bc. So i checked out the feature list of current d365bc, what can be used for that functionality or is an extension needed? So in the end i found the "Data Exports", a quite well known feature in NAV. I worked with D365BC - Austria. Currently i don't know what in detail are the differences between the localized versions, so please check, if data exports is available in "your" d365bc. ;-) For the full posting follow  https://moxie4nav.wordpress.com/2018/07/22/d365bc-data-backups/ cheers

Monitoring Food Transportation From "Farm To Fork" While still in its early stages, blockchain promises to become the next disruptive technology that must be addressed by SMB executives today. But just like any new technology, it is done with proper planning and insight. NGL isn’t just talking about blockchain, but is playing a active part in its development and use as a leader in the food supply chain industry. For NGL, blockchain today means several things. First, blockchain does not exist in a silo. Like any technology, blockchain will need to be woven into the fabric of the wider IT enterprise like ERP and MRP systems.
