For the past few years we have attended Dynamic Communities Summit as a CRMUG Sponsor. This year is no different, on Monday we will be boarding our plane in Toronto and flying over to Phoenix, Arizona for Summit 2018 as a CRMUG Platinum Sponsor.

UG Summit is 6 conferences in one for users of Microsoft Dynamics 365, CRM, AX, NAV, GP, and PowerBI, making it the go-to conference that brings industry experts, software development vendors, and everyday users together to discuss important issues, trends, product updates, customer pain points, and genuine solutions for Microsoft Dynamics applications.

Once we’ve landed, we will be settling in and getting our booth set-up in the expo hall which is right by the Community Theatre, booth 1053. After we’re set-up we’ll be heading over to the Partner Exchange. Dynamics Communities has set-up the Partner Exchange for all Dynamics Partners, ISVs, VARs, System Integrators, Independent Consultants. The afternoon provides content relevant to Dynamics partners before the general conference begins, hopefully we will see some of you there.

At 5pm the conference kicks off for everyone with the Welcome Reception going on until 8pm. Here you’ll be able to mingle with attendees and chat with the Summit sponsors. You will find us at our booth for the evening, we invite you to stop by, talk to us about your data integration projects, and get some KingswaySoft swag.

The conference really gets rolling on Tuesday with breakout sessions and general sessions for each User Group. Dynamic Communities offers session tracks for all types of users. Whatever your role is interacting with Dynamics, there will be sessions catered to you to give you new ideas and interact with other users and experts. Summit always does of phenomenal job of connecting users and delivering top notch content with great opportunities to network.

We will be delivering our Partner Showcase Presentation called Codeless Techniques for Data Integration Development on Tuesday at 2:30 in room 226B&C - North.

In our session, we will discuss techniques developers should use within their data integration/migration projects for Microsoft Dynamics 365 CE/CRM. Some topics we will cover include managing and preventing duplicates, working with relationship dependencies and lookup fields, overcoming errors, as well as strategies to fine-tune your data integration performance. To demonstrate the techniques we will be using SSIS Integration Toolkit for Microsoft Dynamics 365. This solution includes features to handle those complex data integration requirements to ease data integration development with a codeless approach. This session is intended for both those familiar and unfamiliar with the toolkit, focusing on development strategies & techniques.

Wednesday kicks off with the Microsoft Keynote from 8:15 – 9:30 AM, Powering Digital Transformation with Microsoft Business Applications. The remainder of the day is filled with more great sessions tailored to your learning path. Our Principal Developer and Microsoft MVP, Daniel Cai, will be leading a session at 11:15 AM called Data Integration for Dynamics 365 CE: A Deep Technical Dive in room 221C - North.
