The landscape for Dynamics Partners is rapidly changing with new challenges to come in FY19. How will you navigate this very disruptive period?

In this webinar Dave Wallen & me survey the current partner landscape, define the challenges, and introduce a variety of ways partners can succeed for years to come.

Discussion Topics:

  • Trends and Challenges for Dynamics Partners
  • Becoming a “Modern” Microsoft Partner
  • Investments You May Have to Make to Stay Relevant
  • Strategies for Profitably Transitioning to a Cloud Business Model
  • CSP Options and Programs for Dynamics VARs and ISVs
  • Other Partner Programs to Ease the Transition

Since Microsoft Dynamics 365 was released last year we have seen the implementation of the One Commercial Partner program and the launch of Dynamics 365 Business Central. In FY19 the requirements for Silver and Gold competencies will be increased, the bar for 1-Tier CSP partners will be raised and the NAV brand will be retired. We hope you join us in our talk about how to meet these challenges.

Getting Started with Dynamics 365 Business Central Development Sandbox Environment

If you depend on Microsoft Dynamics products to generate revenue and want to start developing for Dynamics 365 Business Central, it is important to understand the different options that are available. Microsoft resellers and ISV can either choose to run a sandbox environment deployed as a Dynamics 365 Business Central service, or a container-based image either hosted as an Azure VM or locally. AL development tools are provided for both options. The container-based sandbox also provides access to the C/SIDE development tools.

Capabilities available in the development sandbox environments for Dynamics 365 Business Central include deployment, production data, porduction services, cost, development, tools and debugging. Get an overview of your options.

The AL developer environment enables Dynamics Vendors to get started writing extensions for Dynamics 365 Business Central, but you will need a Dynamics 365 Business Central tenant, Visual Studio Code, and the AL Language extension. Learn more
