You will leave with the confidence to implement Power BI, create your own center of excellence and ensure success at your organization.

While PowerPlatform offers connector for Business Central to 50+ prebuilt exposed API’s, there are reasons why you would need more. And this ‘more’ can come only through custom connectors. That means if you add some custom field, or if you want to connect PowerPlatform with nonexposed tables, you will need solution.

In these scenarios you need to build API’s and custom connectors. This is not so complex but requires a bit different approach. At this session, you will see how to expose custom API, how to build custom connector and create Power App and Power Automate based on custom scenarios.
