Empired hosts the most successful Dynamics Day yet

Last week Empired hosted its most successful Dynamics Day to date, with a record number of registrations and exceedingly positive feedback received. The event featured Empired experts and leaders from Microsoft giving insights on digital transformation, trends and best practices, and future technology directions, as well as presentations from Empired customers, Peet, on transitioning ERP to the cloud, Queensland Performing Arts Centre, on digital transformation, and AMEO, on improving decision making with Data Insights.

Dynamics Day 2016

Dynamics Day is the only event of its kind in Australasia. It brings together hundreds of business decision makers and technology leaders for a day of thought-provoking sessions, real-world client stories and business-focused technology updates. The focus is squarely on the Microsoft technology landscape and future direction, and what this means to organisations.

Perhaps the most exciting aspect of the day was the Australian first-look at Microsoft Dynamics 365. As a Gold Microsoft Partner, Empired had the pleasure of walking attendees through the new Dynamics 365 solution that combines Microsoft’s Dynamics ERP and CRM applications. It is available in two editions: Enterprise and Business. 

The Dynamics 365 Enterprise edition is a combined Dynamics AX and CRM solution and is targeted at enterprise customers, while the Dynamics Business edition combines Dynamics NAV and CRM and is targeted at small- to medium-sized businesses (SMBs) with up to 250 employees. 

These Enterprise and Business editions will replace Microsoft Dynamics AX and CRM, which will no longer exist as standalone applications. 

Dynamics Day 2016 began with a welcome by Mike Morgan, our executive general manager of Transformation Services, and a keynote address from Simon Davies, VP Dynamics Asia, Microsoft AP China, India, Japan, who discussed how organisations can leverage data to engage customers, empower employees, optimise operations, transform products and drive operational efficiencies and scale.

Three of our customers, Queensland Performing Arts Centre, Peet and AMEO generously gave some of their time to attend the event and speak about how they have worked with us to implement Microsoft solutions in their organisations and the significant improvements they have seen as a result.

Jo Burston, Founder and CEO of Inspiring Rare Birds, concluded the day with an inspiring lock note presentation about the importance of understanding and nurturing women in business.

The day also included live demonstrations of the new system, showing how the Microsoft platform can help leverage, and act on, data collected from Internet of Things devices.

A huge thank you to our sponsors; Microsoft, Epic Server, Hoosh, Epic, Marketo, Experian and Take On, who helped to make the day an outstanding success.
