Naeem will be sharing his experience and knowledge on the advantages of Microsoft Dynamics 365 in one session. His primary goal is to help people with organizing as well as planning the implementation of moving to the cloud.
How a Customer Moved its Core Financials to the Cloud, Fast… Not Furious:
The City of Columbus is the 14th largest city in the United States. In early 2021, it moved its administrative applications and supporting financial processes to the Microsoft Dynamics 365 software suite. Moving its core financials to the Cloud was done on Azure Cloud services. This implementation is one of the largest Microsoft Dynamics 365 clients in production. For instance, it has over 700 active users and 7,000 external vendor portal users. Additionally, it has a transaction volume of 12,000 invoices per month. While this project began in 2019, they successfully completed the critical phases of the project remotely during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Top Takeaways: Learn how the City of Columbus followed a proven methodology to achieve its key business transformation objectives. For example, this includes:
- Utilize more out-of-the-box functionality and decrease customizations & third-party solutions
- Secure a Cloud-based architecture with a high performance and intuitive user interface
- Expand capabilities in procurement, AR, AP, and grant/fund accounting
- Enhance their current cashiering solution with an advanced Point of Sale
Naeem is looking forward to attending Summit because he thinks it is one of the best platforms for the Dynamics community. He also wants to contribute and learn as much as possible.
