The October edition of the NAV Roadshow is locked and loaded.

Based on your input the event will focus on NAV & BI. We hope to demystify the myriad of BI offerings from Microsoft. The ‘All-Up BI team’ will be running a soup to nuts demo using Contoso data to show what is possible. This will then be followed by key BI vendors showcasing their products and positioning them against a typical customer. If time permits we are going to squeeze in a Executive Overview of SQL 2008.

We have a lot of NAV News to take you through including the NAV 2009 Readiness plan for Technical and Sales/Pre-Sales.

Louise Watkins will run her regular Resources Update which includes the launch of the new Partner Portal.

There will also be a section on utilising Microsoft Finance. Very useful in the current market climate.

Plus we have a new section to add to the Roadshow agenda. The EMEA NAV Support Team will be running a presentation on how best to work with them, plus giving a run down on the top 5 support calls for NAV this quarter. This is going to be a regular event at every Roadshow from now on.

We have an update for you on Hosted NAV. Attenda who presented at the last Roadshow have built out there price offerings for NAV partners and will be taking you through those along with details of a discounted offering for early birds. Rick Flood a Dynamics Hosting Consultant is going to take you through a hosted NAV workshop we will be running in November.

All in all a packed agenda. Should be a great day!

Both events are filling up fast. Please book your place now.

However, if you are a serial ‘no show’ (you know who you are!) then please free up your place for someone else. Both events look to be oversubscribed.

As normal any questions or queries please give me a shout. Feedback, ideas, suggestions are always welcome.
