Assisting the digital transformation journey with Dynamics 365


The ongoing global pandemic has shifted the majority of business operations online. To uphold continuity plans, industry leaders are now required to rethink and re-evaluate their business models. However, many are still operating using on-prem ERP systems that are proving costly and complex to manage, with employees depending on manual processes that are increasing the risk for error.

Replacing heavily customized AX solutions and moving to the cloud is one way of tackling these issues. By automating many processes, organizations can enhance their user experience, improve operational and financial efficiencies and increase project visibility.

  • How can organizations elevate ERP systems to be more agile and flexible in response to continually changing requirements?
  • What steps need to be taken for industry leaders to upgrade systems while minimizing customizations and disruptions?
  • How can leaders increase employee engagement and add value to their business?

The Café Series is tailored to senior leaders responsible for information technology, finance, operations, etc.

Job titles include but are not limited to CIO, CFO, COO, VP, Heads, Directors, and Managers of IT, Finance, Operations; IT Business Analyst, IT Program Manager, IT Project Manager and the like.
