Better Business from ArcherPoint
February 2016


Microsoft Convergence Becomes Microsoft Envision: New Name, New Focus

As we told you in January’s Better Business newsletter, last year at Microsoft Convergence, Microsoft announced it would be changing the format of the conference for 2016, focusing on higher-level business leadership content rather than product information. They encouraged users to attend NAVUG Summit in the Fall for product information and collaboration with other users.

In February, Microsoft cemented the change, announcing a new name for the conference: Envision. We blogged about this last week, but this is a big change the NAV community needs to be aware of as you plan your training schedule and budget for 2016, so we want to keep getting the word out.

Don’t sign up for Envision expecting to hear about the latest product releases, see product roadmaps, or play with Microsoft Dynamics NAV in the Solutions Experience center. But what you can expect in this flagship event for business leaders and decision makers is a focus on the latest trends and ways to capitalize on them, explore disruptive technologies and successful strategies by industry and role, and opportunities to connect with other C-levels, innovators, and visionaries.

Are you planning on attending Envision? Talk to us about your goals.

Avalara to Discontinue Support for NAV 2009

Beginning May 1st, Avalara will no longer be supporting Connectors for Dynamics NAV 2009. Clients can continue to run this software; however, Avalara will no longer provide software fixes. Avalara will provide software updates, fixes, and support for versions of Dynamics which are under "Mainstream" support by Microsoft. Key reasons to update your Connector include improved performance and usability, improved functionality, and continuity of performance. Contact your ArcherPoint representative for more information.

NAVUG Focus 2016 logo

NAVUG Focus 2016
With so many events talking about Microsoft Dynamics NAV, how do you determine the best places to invest your training budget? NAVUG has an answer: NAVUG Focus. NAV users wanted to drill down into topics that are critically important to them, and NAVUG Focus was developed to do just that. This first year of Focus, to be held June 7-8, 2016 in Schaumburg, Illinois (metro Chicago), will emphasize topics in Manufacturing, IT, and Finance. Focus offers the opportunity to completely submerge yourself within the learning track of your choice and come away with best practices, improved industry knowledge, and sharpened skills you can immediately apply in your organization.
