|Navicon’s AX Fair in Moscow was a big success. Around 150 peopled gather to learn about Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012. There were a few keynotes followed by two breakout tracks, hands-on labs to allow everyone to interact with AX 2012. Also every attendee got a free copy of the Russian version of Inside Dynamics AX 2012. The book has been translated by Navicon – the host of the conference.
The Fair was dressed in traditional Russian style and colors, including a guy playing the mandolin (I think) most of the day.
During lunch there was a book signing session. The excitement around the book truly amazed me – I stopped counting how many hands I’ve shaken and how many dedications I’ve written.
|Being a bit challenged by the language, I selected to attend the few English sessions. I saw Keith Thaulow, EMEA Sales Director, Demand Solutions speaking about the importance of good Forecasts for Sales and Production. The forecasting solution from Demand Solutions can free up cash tied up in Inventory – you can expect to reduce the inventory levels by at least 10%; and whats equally amazing is that the vast majority of companies installing Demand Solutions’ AX Forecasting solution is able to have it fully implemented within the first 6 months.|
Tonight I’m having a tradition Russian/Ukrainian dinner with developers from the Russian community.
