JOVACO was on site in Hamburg, Germany from November 9 to 11 for the 2022 edition of Directions EMEA! Every year, this event groups together the international Microsoft Dynamics community. This was our first time attending the event as JOVACO is planning on expanding our presence globally starting next year. We can now say mission accomplished!
The Power Platform at the heart of the conference
The Power Platform was at the heart of multiple Directions EMEA discussions and sessions. We felt Microsoft’s desire to turn the Power Platform into an integral element of the Dynamics 365 ecosystem, not only for Microsoft Dynamics 365 Customer Engagement, but also Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central. Enhancements made to the integration to Business Central let users manage Power Automate workflows directly from Business Central, while the use of the Dataverse offer even more possibilities with Power Apps and Power BI.
JOVACO has been using the Power Platform with Microsoft Dynamics 365 for a few years now. We’re happy to see that upcoming Business Central implementations will also be able to benefit from it. To know more, read our blog about our favourite new features for Power Apps!
Diversity in the spotlight thanks to Women in Dynamics
We were greatly inspired by the strength and presence of this organization, which strives to motivate organizations to be increasingly more inclusive, for example by encouraging them to increase the number of women in their ranks.
This is a cause that JOVACO holds dear since its inception, and we were extremely touched to have our efforts rewarded during the Women in Dynamics reception. Our president Valerie Coutu was surprised and honoured to receive the Women in Dynamics Diversity and Inclusion Award. We were delighted to share JOVACO’s various initiatives to make our firm a healthy and welcoming work environment.
In short, we were impressed by the community, the number of partners on site, and the quality of the sessions. JOVACO wants to develop our presence in Europe starting next year, and this opportunity was the chance for us to confirm that there is indeed a need for a solution that meets the needs of professional services. We had the opportunity to establish several promising contacts, and we’re looking forward to going back next year!
