Directions Emea 2017

3 Sessions You Can’t Afford to Miss at Directions EMEA

It’s both an exciting and confusing time to be on either end of Microsoft Dynamics ERP.

Users are at the heels of gaining access to intelligent, cloud based, end-to-end solutions that can help run and organize their business at a record rate of return and lower point of entry. Value added resellers (VARs) are able to structure a repeatable business model that is more efficient, more profitable, and more appealing to a broader base of customers.

But with the rapid evolvement of functionality and offerings, especially surrounding Dynamics 365 and Dynamics NAV, many resellers, and users, are left with questions about timing, product plans, platform options, competitive business models, and pricing (to name a few on a long, growing list).

There is no doubt that the attendees at this year’s Directions EMEA in Madrid on October 4th-6th, which is exclusive to service partners, VARS, and independent software vendors (ISV), will be looking for answers. The event is slated to be a landmark show for Microsoft’s announcements about the roadmap on both products.

As a proud Gold Sponsor of Directions EMEA 2017, and the leading provider of reporting and data solutions for Dynamics NAV since version 2.60, Jet Reports is committed to delivering the answers you are looking for, on and off the spreadsheet. If you’ll be in Spain, here are three sessions that you absolutely cannot afford to miss amongst the movement:

  • Making Money as a Partner: How to Leverage Modern ISVs | Wednesday, October 4th 12:30 – 13:15 pm | Speaker: Jon Oesch
    Attend the most impactful hour at the show to learn what Jet Reports financial reporting is today, to see a sneak peek of Jet Reports for Dynamics 365, find out how to leverage Jet Reports to build your repeatability model, and more!
  • Future Focus: The Next Five Years for Microsoft Dynamics Partner | Wednesday, October 4th 17:45 – 18:45 pm | Speaker: George Brown
    The world is changing, and the unwind rate of Microsoft Dynamics partners just accelerated. What does the future look like for the VAR and ISV businesses we know so well? This session will walk you through the business opportunities and threats that are on the horizon in the transitional years ahead.
  • Keynote: Will Power BI and Dynamics 365 be the end of Jet Reports? | Thursday, October 5th 10:15 AM | Speakers: Jon Oesch and Brian Petersen
    It’s actually the opposite. Jet Reports is still the best solution for solving reporting and BI needs. It is also the first reporting solution available for Dynamics 365 in AppSource, and the fastest way to deploy Power BI.  Attend this session to see what Jet Reports is today: delivering customer success for NAV, Dynamics 365, and Power BI.
