Directions EMEA last week was an overall positive affair – an adjusted message from Microsoft combined with the charm of Madrid clearly had an impact. Sure, some important questions regarding future versions Dynamics NAV remains, but this has been covered extensively by others – instead, we would like to share the ‘feel’ of what we left Madrid with.
During our first Directions in Berlin in 2010, our team left with the feeling of not being fully prepared for the future changes – this despite presenting RTC hands-on-labs together with Microsoft. By comparison, at Directions Madrid 2017, the same people felt quite curious about the future – and it is not really because the changes presented are fewer.
Maybe it is just that the frequency has changed from an annual jump to many smaller changes during the year that we are more used to the pace of change. Still, even for a sizable development team like ours, it is hard to keep up with everything, so somewhere along the way, we must have changed our approach.
This is what was discussed in our retrospective analysis on the plane back.
