  • Blog Post: Was it necessary to kill the Classic client?

    Absolutely. The world needs to move ahead. The technology advances. Who doesn’t want to keep up with the progress, stays behind. That’s how it has worked since the dawn of civilization. I can’t know the exact reasons why Microsoft has decided to stop support for the Classic client with NAV “7”, but I...

  • Blog Post: Sure Step in action: business process change

    Service Providers (or colloquially partners ) often refrain from undertaking organization or process changes during implementation projects of Microsoft Dynamics solutions. And it comes as no surprise: there are many risks related to it, and customizations are taken as a more traditional approach. ...

    Where I have been for the past eight months… This blog started enthusiastically, I had as many as 14 posts per month. Taking into account that blogging was only a hobby, I blogged like crazy.

  • Blog Post: What does a Microsoft Dynamics consultant do?

    I wonder what people do with Google (or any other search engine for that matter) results past page two, or three. Or ten.

  • Blog Post: Diagnostic Phase – a signpost for implementation

    Each phase of Microsoft Dynamics Sure Step methodology is equally important in an implementation project.
