Bob's BloGPipes - GPUG Amplify Agenda Deep Dive (2nd of 3)

By Bob McAdam posted May 05, 2016 08:59 AM


The month of May has officially arrived, and that means the inaugural GPUG Amplify is almost here!  In this 2nd of my 3-part blog series, I’ll dig into what you can expect to see & hear at this new event beginning May 23rd at the Marriott Anaheim.  I posted a preview two months ago to get the ball started regarding all of the Dynamics GP 2016 material we’ll showcase via our friends at Microsoft, but GPUG Amplify contains SO MUCH other information as well.  Here's another look at what you can expect, content-wise, at GPUG Amplify:

§  Mark Polino from Fastpath, a Dynamics GP MVP, has a brand new session on reimplementing Dynamics GP security.  It wouldn’t be a Dynamics GP event without a presentation from Mark and while he’s hung up the ’50 Tips in 50 Minutes’ gig for good, he’ll make you think a great deal about paying more attention to your security matrix in short order.

§  Amber Bell from Training Dynamo has officially been passed the ‘GP Tips’ torch from Mark Polino and she’s more than ready to help attendees with her own brand of Dynamics GP tricks.  This session will have a different name & format from Mark’s classic presentations, but the knowledge level you’ll add won’t change.  Amber’s ‘GP Superhero’ session just might pay for your GPUG Amplify registration by itself.

§  Martin Olsen from eOneSolutions will be there, of course, and that means we’ll have sessions on SmartList Builder and Extender.  Additionally, Martin has a brand new session on App Integration.  He’s tried out several business applications – some he likes & uses, others not so much.  Regardless, integrating these into Dynamics GP is a hot topic for him these days, and he’ll share his recent experiences here while encouraging you to contemplate the same thinking around your office.

§  Dynamics GP MVP Leslie Vail has two comprehensive sessions to present to GPUG Amplify attendees:  one on application configuration best practices and an advanced session on Dynamics GP macros.  She brings years of experience with Dynamics GP to every presentation she gives, and we're happy to have her in our corner once again! 



Having attended 13 of the previous 14 Convergence conferences, I’m extremely pleased with what we’ve built here and equally grateful to all that are contributing.  GPUG Amplify is ‘Convergence-like’ in many ways, thus I am confident that attendees will be more than pleased with our content offerings.  This series finishes up early next week with one final post just like this one that digs deep into what you can expect.  Come join us for this first-of-its-kind event and be a part of Dynamics GP history! 

Looking forward to seeing you in Anaheim soon!
