Ask the MVPs: What is the Future of the Common Data Service (for Apps)?

Over the last 12 months or so there has been a quiet revolution as we have gone from Dynamics as a product to Dynamics as a collection of apps on a common base platform. Not only has it raised questions in naming the User Groups for Dynamic Communities (D365CEUG? F&OUG?) but it is not clear where PowerApps ends and Dynamics 365 begins. In this session, you will get a chance to ask the MVPs what they see as happening in the future. Live on stage their answers will be unfiltered, uncompromising, and unscripted.

Creating Custom Connectors for the Power Platform

Building a custom connector is a great way for developers to extend the Power Platform beyond the out of the box functionality. This opens the door to using services beyond the 200+ already supported or to create your own to provide data and extend formula capabilities. This session will demonstrate how to connect to existing APIs and set up Azure Function & Web API projects to produce OpenAPI definitions that can easily be used in your PowerApp, Flow, or Logic App with little modification.

Managing Dynamics Goes Beyond the Technology

It is easy to focus on designing and implementing a system and think this will be enough to have a successful Dynamics deployment but being tech savvy is not enough. In this session we will explore what happens after the training has happened and the system has gone live. Using the People/Process/Technology framework we will examine precisely what skills we need in our organisation, beyond the technical, to have a system that is built to last.
