Intelligent decision making with Power BI and Power Platform
Business is looking for more automated, knowledge-based and actionable BI. Therefore it is not enough to create reports and hope users find needed information. Intelligent decision-making is an approach where several techniques are combined to provide recommendations in plain language, prepared using explainable rules or algorithms and connected with automated workflows to connect APIs or other interfaces. In this session, we will look at how it is possible to build intelligent decision-making solutions using the Microsoft Power Platform.Terrace HallR 9:00 - 9:50
The chicken-egg dilemma; Should Product Development or Change Management come first in CRM systems?
CRM systems are a wonderful thing. They help you manage data for your clients, sales processes and your overall business relationship with them. But they can be messy when they are not developed around the user and are overloaded with technical expertise instead. And then you wonder, why are my end-users not adopting the system?
Imagine instead a world where Change Managers were best friends with Business Analysts, Solution Architects and Developers. A world where they all work together towards the CRM platform’s development from the beginning by championing the user experience instead of working separately. No longer is Change Management at the end of the product lifecycle, but rather a trusted companion at the start of the journey.
In this session, we will review the benefits of Change Managers being involved in the continuous development of CRM systems, both for the business and their clients. We will also look at the risks and potential hurdles if Product Development and Change Management work in silos. Finally, we will look at how you can inspire a collaboration culture that brings your teams together and ultimately drives end-user satisfaction in your operations.Traforoom 2R 10:00 - 10:50
Dos and don'ts when transforming your intranet to this decade
Many organisations consider their intranet to be still fresh, if it's renewed within five years. But if you look at how much communications technology and ways of working have changed during the last five years, you may want to re-evaluate the status of your intranet as well.
If 5 years ago, the basic building blocks of an intranet were IT department as the project lead, on-prem SharePoint, stock price as an RSS feed on the front page and lunch list, what are the new ones? In the modern M365 world, things are a bit different.
In this session, I will present top 5 topics that cause debate on the customer project groups and what kind of solutions we have found for them. Demos included!Stalker HallR 10:00 - 10:50

Double Power: Power BI and Power Apps Integration
Power BI is a great interactive reporting tool, and Power Apps is a great business application development tool. Separately, they are great, but they are amazing if you use them both.
