    MJFChat: Microsoft's Dynamics 365 Business Central: What IT pros need to know

    Posted on by Mary Jo Foley in Dynamics, Podcasts, and PowerApps

     

    You can find a transcript of the interview, here.

    We’ve started a new, twice-monthly interview show on Petri.com that will cover topics of interest to our tech-professional audience. We are calling this show “MJFChat.”

    In my role as Petri’s Community Magnate, I will be interviewing a variety of IT-savvy technology folks. Some of these will be Petri contributors; some will be tech-company employees; some will be IT pros. We will be tackling various subject areas in the form of 30-minute audio interviews. I will be asking the questions, the bulk of which we’re hoping will come from you, our Petri.com community of readers.

    We will ask for questions a week ahead of each chat. Readers can post their suggested questions in the designated “MJFChat” area in our Petri.com forums. Once the interviews are completed, we will post the audio and associated transcript in the forums for readers to digest at their leisure.

    Our next MJFChat, scheduled for Monday September 30, is between me and Erik Hougaard, Microsoft Business Applications MVP. The general topic of our chat is what IT pros need to know about Microsoft’s Dynamics 365 Business Central. We want you to submit your best questions ahead of our chat here in the forums.

    Dynamics 365 Business Central is an ERP system from Microsoft and the successor to Dynamics NAV (formerly known as Navision). Business Central is primarily targeted at small/mid-size businesses and meant to help SMBs manage their businesses. The product helps with administration, finance, business intelligence, purchasing, sales, planning, and more.

    Hougaard just finished a book for those wanting a leg up in implementing Business Central. His Field Guide for Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central is meant to be a companion to Microsoft’s documentation, and includes both deep-dive and background information on the product. As a Microsoft Business Applications MVP, Hougaard also can help us (hopefully) wind our way through the ever-changing Dynamics strategy and landscape.

    If you have any topics or scenarios you’d like Hougaard to cover, make sure to chime in ahead of time.

    Also: If you know someone you’d like to see interviewed on the MJFChat show, including yourself, send me a note at [email protected] (Let me know why you think this person would be an awesome guest and what topics you’d like to see covered.) We’ll take things from there….
