Dynamics Day 2013, Auckland Edition

From its inception, the goal of Dynamics Day has always been to help users – and prospective users – of Microsoft Dynamics AX, NAV and CRM to get more out of their investments, both now and, by looking at the product roadmaps, what opportunities are coming in the future.

In addition to product-specific information, we also like to provide cross-stream sessions that highlight new and emerging areas we believe attendees either should be aware of, or that could add value to their day-to-day work lives. Or both. 

Dynamics Day 2013, run in Auckland on Wednesday, was no exception. For this year’s event we had an underlying theme: “Making it real.” With around 200 people at the event, from a wide range of industries and in a wide range of roles, we put on a number of sessions designed to inform and update people with realistic, pragmatic information on using their Dynamics solutions. Whilst this was the fifth time we’ve run the event in New Zealand, we’re also running it in Sydney for the first time today.

We appreciate the support from Kees Hertogh (LinkedIn, Twitter), our keynote speaker who made the flight down from Redmond and provided insights into Microsoft’s evolution as a company, being a dynamic business, and provided some examples of how organisations are making use of their systems to derive tangible – and often significant – benefits, including cost savings. While New Zealand and Australian companies often operate at a different scale, the principles are nonetheless relevant. 

The event had many other highlights, from the in-room “real life” auction highlighting the capabilities of an AX and CRM solution developed for NZ Bloodstock, through to this year’s edition of Don Smith’s update on how emerging technologies – think sensors and computer-controlled devices and hardware – can improve customer and work experiences, all highlighting projects Intergen has completed for Microsoft Corporation.

The day’s events were rounded off by an entertaining speech from scientist and social entrepreneur, Sir Ray Avery. 

For those who couldn’t make it, videos of the event will be available during the next few weeks. Attendees will be notified when they’re available, so they can then review the event and see anything they missed, or want to see again. In the meantime you can see photos taken during the day in this Facebook album (no need to be a Facebook user to see it).

Thanks to everyone involved in making this a great event, especially our partners Microsoft and Fuji-Xerox, the customers who shared their experiences, our presenting team, and the team who put the event together.
