The Future of Dynamics NAV Extensions

Last week, there was a call from Microsoft (a so called “Directions Webinar”) all partners could attend. It was a public call, with about 400 people – which kind of means: the information is considered to be public. Now, I’m not good in expressing my opinion. I never felt that it was my job nor …

Setting up Project “Madeira” Preview (also when you’re not from the US)

The last few days (between the soup and potatoes (Flemish expression ;-)), I have been trying to set up a full blown environment on Project “Madeira”. Not easy, as I am not from the US, and this preview only got released in the US. And apparently, Microsoft is serious about that – like when I …

Project “Madeira” Public Preview

As of today, Project “Madeira” is in public preview. Question is .. What is Project “Madeira”? In short: It’s a new offering in the cloud, in fact “NAV-in-the-cloud”, strongly integrated with Office 365.

Apply-NAVDelta to add and remove customizations

Yep, PowerShell again. So the people that deny PowerShell can stop reading now :-). Although I do think this is quite an interesting blogpost on how to work somewhat more easily with deltas, by the use of a function that is part of my PowerShell Module, called: Apply-NAVDelta.
