At Directions EMEA 2023, there is also an increased focus on Power Platform and AI:

  • The business apps that make up the Power Platform give partners a number of new opportunities to help customers get much more out of their data, helping to create digital transformation in the company. Therefore, at Directions EMEA 2023, you can expect an increased focus on Power Platform, including Power Apps, Power Automate and Power BI, with a wide range of in-depth sessions and workshops.
  • There are probably very few people who haven't noticed that there has been a lot of hype about AI technology in the last year. Therefore, this year's Directions EMEA will also focus on how integrating Business Central data and data collected outside of Business Central with AI can help customers get an intelligent future view of their company and business, creating a fantastic opportunity for Business Central partners to engage with and remain valuable and relevant to end customers.
