We safely landed in Vienna after flying over more than 18000+ Km. This is just normal to most of us who live on the edge of the world. As our prime minister used says even the shortest flight to our neighbor is more than 4 hours away. So flying for more than 24 hours is quite common for most of us.  
Sometimes it feels New Zealand is far away from the rest of the world, but that is the same feeling that holds us tight to the beautiful island nation. This is my first time in Vienna and also to Directions EMEA. Wagner and I presented in the last two Directions ASIA conferences but I’m sure the vibe is totally different in Directions EMEA. 

We will be conducting 3 sessions and all our sessions are focused on integrating Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central with the outer world with the help of Azure integration Services. We are planning to take the audience through some of the very interesting Azure technologies that are built to make the integration life easy. 

If you are planning or already working with integration scenarios you might want to book your slot with us.

Theta: 
This year we got 4 people attending Directions EMEA representing THETA (NZ). Joerg Rau (Head of Theta ERP) is a frequent attendee to Directions EMEA and together with him Carl Head, Wagner Silveira and myself are planning to attend almost all the possible sessions we can, to grasp the latest technologies related to Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central. 

The knowledge we gather during the Directions EMEA helps us to add more value and flavor to the solutions we deliver to our customers back home. Even though we are far away from the rest of the world, this keeps us toe to toe with all the other partners in Europe and the US. 

If you see us during the conference(I’m sure you will) don’t be a stranger and just say hi. I would love to get to know you all and who knows the possibilities that might open with just a small “hi”. 

See you tomorrow!
