Today I attended the Microsoft Dynamics AX Industry Solution Event which was held in Marriott hotel in Riyadh. Microsoft Arabia MBS team was managing the show. Also five of Microsoft Dynamics AX partners in Saudi were there showing the business capabilities of Microsoft Dynamics AX 2009.

He spoke about Microsoft Dynamics ERPs and Microsoft Dynamics AX roadmaps, high level features of Microsoft Dynamics AX, business market needs, adaptation of those needs with Microsoft Dynamics ERPs… etc.

Cool session. It was all about showing muscles of Dynamics AX of how this enterprise software could manage the integration with external systems.

It was all about AIF, .NET business connector and CLR Interoperability.

For each of them I gave a simple application, like the following:

·         For AIF, I created a service using the Document Service Wizard. Then we extending it by adding a new operation. Then we published it on the local IIS. After this we were able to create a very simple console application to get data from Dynamics AX through the created web service.

·         For .NET Business connector, I created I windows application from Visual Studio .NET to call using the .NET business connector a static method that is written in X++.

·         For the CLR Interoperability, we called System.IO .NET library from within the X++. And then we a simple library in Visual Studio .NET, referenced it in Dynamics AX and then called it from within an AOT Job and X++.

Although I was putting a great expectations on the result of this session, this session was hardest. All because of the Workflow!

The recommendation from Microsoft before the DGS was to not the exceed of level 100 of technicality. Although I did not exceed this level, talking about workflow to people who saw Dynamics AX for two or three times in their lives is exactly like if I’m talking in Turkish J!!!

What then happened is when I tried configure the workflow template generated in the session using Workflow for Dummies.. the configuration just crashed. What a luck!

Fortunately I continued with a hotter topic that is how to use Dynamics AX web controls and ASP.NET controls to interact with Dynamics AX on the Enterprise Portal.

After that I closed the session by creating a report in SQL Server Reporting Services and the saving it in the Report Library of Dynamics AX AOT.

You could download the power point presentations from here.

Microsoft Gulf Developers Conference ’09

As part of the events that Microsoft held in Gulf region, Saudi specially, for developers who use or might be interested in Microsoft development platforms, technologies, and products… a new conference will take place in Riyadh in the 13th of December, 2009 for three days. This conference will be called as: GDC ’09.

“With the current release of latest new Microsoft technologies (e.g. Win7, Expression3, SL3), and the intense anticipation for upcoming Microsoft technologies (e.g. Office 2010, SharePoint 2010 & VS2010), GDC’09 is expected to attract the attention of many developers in the region. ” from Microsoft site.

Microsoft Dynamics AX is also part of the interests. For Microsoft Dynamics AX sessions, I have been chosen to cover the technical part and the development tools of Microsoft Dynamics AX at a glance.

I have decided to divide the sessions into three, like the following:

1.    Introduction to Microsoft Dynamics AX Architecture and Development Environment

·         This session will give the developers a great overview of the technology used in Dynamics AX through describing tiers of architecture and development tools. The excitement in this session would come when the “fresh Dynamics AX developers” notice the ease, beauty and flexibility of developing inside such environment and using those tools.
 

2.    Microsoft Dynamics AX with other Microsoft Technologies

·         Aligning Dynamics AX with other Microsoft technologies will be shown clearly in this session. Adding value to Microsoft Dynamics AX like BI reporting, web interface and workflow is available out of the box and all are using Microsoft products like SQL Server platform, SharePoint technology and .NET framework.

3.    Integrating Microsoft Dynamics AX with External Systems

·         By this session, the cycle of Microsoft Dynamics AX development will complete. In addition to developing inside Dynamics AX and out-of-the-box integration with Microsoft products, integrating with external systems (Microsoft and non Microsoft technologies) is described here with available ways, tools and technologies.

I will put a schedule for my sessions 0nce I get them. I will also update the plug with what will happen during the events.
