We will look at what’s new since last year with integrating with Dynamics 365, changes in Logic Apps and the Dynamics 365 Connector. We will also look at leveraging Azure Event Grid for both inbound and outbound integrations.

There have been many changes in Logic Apps since the last years talk and they have released a V2 Dynamics 365 connector for Logic Apps with some breaking changes. Azure Event Grid is a new technology in the Azure Enterprise Integration stack, I will show how this can be used to help reduce the amount of polling required in a standard integration scenario.

Matt Tan - Extracting meaningful Analytics from Dynamics 365 with Power BI

Is reporting a burden requiring lots of manual data exports and excel crunching? Do you believe you are realising all the potential that your CRM data has to offer? Does everyone in your organisation have the same definition and understanding of their KPIs? Power BI can be your saviour! Whilst Dynamics365 has some powerful built-in tools for reporting on your data, it can be slow and very manual. My talk centers around how Power BI and SQL Azure can be utilised to improve the agility of reporting on data from D365 as well as provide a platform for providing more advanced analytics.
