GPUG Integration Showcase Series

Well, it's been a hectic beginning of the year for me and projects keep rolling in, keeping me away from writing. However, there are other ways you can get in touch with The Dynamics GP Blogster . One of them is by joining me at the new GPUG Education Hub's Integration Showcase Series . This series of online seminars will begin on January 20th and will end with an online interactive roundtable discussion where you will have a chance to ask all the presenters about the kind of stuff that keeps you up at night when it comes to integrating your corporate applications. The series will feature different integration middleware products, integration techniques, and presenters from eOne Business Solutions, Scribe, Zap, and of course, moi! I will be talking about Integration Manager for Microsoft Dynamics GP and how you can leverage it to build powerful, yet easy to use integrations. Of course, I will talk about the tools strengths and limitations. Date Time Product Title/T
