Weekly Webinars for the Business Applications Community for September 2019!

Didn’t you wish there was some expert that would just explain how to use Dynamics 365 and Power Platform technologies?

Purvin Patel brings his firehose of information to the community every Monday at 10am (Pacific) as part of a weekly webinar series.  You should expect deep dives, special guests, MVPs talking about cool things they have made, some nifty tips and tricks and what is coming down the road.  There are even rumors that he will give a Bluetooth speaker away to the best question asked for each webinar?  These webinars are free for everyone!  We cater to all; whether you know how to code, low code, and absolutely if you don’t even know a single line of code.

We will post the recordings on the Dynamics Community a week later under Resources > Webinars.  So if Mondays are a downer for you, block off some time and hang out with Purvin.

September 16th, 2019 at 10a The Open Data Initiative in Action: Unlock Data Silos with the Microsoft Power Platform At Microsoft Ignite 2018, Satya Nadella, along with the CEOs of Adobe and SAP, announced what is referred to as the Open Data Initiative.   Its intention was clear: establish a common approach and set of resources to unify a customer’s company data, in order to enable powerful insights and intelligent services to be produced with AI.   The end result will be a true customer engagement platform where we have a true unified view of our customer, versus the segmented reality that tends to exist today.

But what does this mean in application? This session will drill into the practical applications of these concepts and how they can be leveraged to achieve our broader vision of delivering world-class customer experiences.  Learn how to harness the Microsoft Power Platform to achieve this vision from MVP Sheila Shahpari!
