Topic: “CRM and Azure integration

Description:

Come and listen to Thomas Faulkner share the benefit of his experience in working with CRM in the Azure space. Windows Azure is Microsoft Cloud based platform and something Microsoft sees as a big part of the future of IT.  More and more of our infrastructure is becoming cloud based and integration between different cloud services, and integration between cloud services and on-premise applications, is getting harder to avoid.

We will explore how to set up integration using Azure Service Bus Queues and Relays, delve into and get our hands dirty writing some code to see how things work behind the scenes and explore some demonstrations on how one might use this technology.  This talk is aimed both at Architects and Decision Makers who need to understand the challenges of an approach like this, as well as Developers and IT Pros who want the nitty gritty details.

Thomas is a developer at Intergen and in his first year there won the coveted prize as Intergen Newcomer of the Year. Let him take you on his recent journey of discovery in building up an integrated cloud-based offering of several different services with CRM Online and Azure at its heart.

Topic: “Your business in the Cloud – is your ERP ready yet?”

Description:

Your business in the Cloud – is your ERP ready yet?

Everyone has heard about the cloud. Using the cloud for private and business purposes has already become normal to us.

But what about the ERP system? Is that ready for the cloud yet? What do you need to consider? Why should you make the move to get this off your hands? What are the implications?

We will look into what “the cloud” is, some answers to the questions above and also briefly into Microsoft’s current and future solutions. You will see there is no real right or wrong all the time, but we hope to give you an idea of what to consider and how to get your business ready.

Please note that the presenter is expecting her first baby very soon, so we have a backup session planned just in case.  We’ll let you know if the session is a TechEd wrap up instead, with an emphasis on CRM as well as general Microsoft news.  So, keep an eye on your emails from us, to be sure.
