My D365 session for Amplify

    Hi Everyone,

    Are you going to #GPUGAmplify in Chicago this year?  I hope so!

    I'm doing a session this year called "Should I be considering Dynamics 365" and I need your help.  The goal of the session is to go over the Dynamics 365 panoply, and help you understand what the component pieces are - without selling them to you.  This is not a "Finance and Operations" session though that will obviously be discussed.

    Normally, I show up at these things and just make attendees listen to what I decide to tell them, but I thought I would try something new this time.  I'd like to know what questions YOU have about Dynamics 365 (beyond "what the heck is it").  Please let me know so that I can answer as many of them as possible in greater detail as part of the presentation.  No question is too small, and feel free to ask about specific Dynamics 365 products if you wish.

    For those who know me and my presentation style, yes I am actually prepping this far in advance.  :)

    Cheers,
    Rod

    ​Rod,
    The biggest question I get it will there be a migration path from Dynamics GP to D365?  I would like a slide to compare and contrast why these products are different.  D365 in my opinion is not near the product of GP and at this time does not compare.  Is this where Microsoft is going with D365?
    I would like to know your thoughts.
    Thanks,
    Tanya

    Thanks Tanya.  If I understand your question aright, you are specifically asking about what is currently referred to as Dynamics 365 Finance & Operations Business Edition.  Is that correct?

    Hi @Rod O'Connor

    Can you touch a little bit on the Extensions and how that makes set up a breeze?

    Thanks @Kristen Hosman.  By extensions, are you referring to the ISV Solutions available through AppSource?  ​

    Hi @Rod O'Connor

    Yes I'm referring to the ISV Solutions available through AppSource.  I think it's super cool and super easy to add ISV products in D365.

    I could be interested in such as session, just because running GP and Dynamics CRM, I already in both worlds.   We are working on eone's Smart Connect to link GP and Dynamics together already.

    Soon I would have completed duplicated Customer, Item and Sales data from GP to Dynamics.  While GP is still our ERP system Dynamics 365 allows CRM to use the same information and provide modern access for Sales access on the road.

    Thanks @Carl Meyer!  Yes, this is exactly the type of scenario I'd like to touch on.  There's no reason GP can't be part of an overall solution that includes elements of "Dynamics 365".​
