Ables will be presenting the session, “AI, BI and Bots: An Executive Overview of Analytics with O365 and Azure.” He will provide an overview of BI and AI concepts and the solutions offered by Microsoft including Power BI, Azure Cognitive Services and some of the Dynamics 365 AI capabilities. Analytics is on track to drive virtually everything about the future of work. From bits, to the internet of things, to artificial intelligence and self-driving cars, there will be more transformation in work over the next 20 years than any other period in history. Analytics will be behind every decision and every interaction, but it can be difficult to separate the marketing hype from the strategic implications. Ables will be delivering a jargon-free presentation of the potential of analytics, how to capture data to get the most out of analytical tools offered by Microsoft, how global leaders are creating cultures of analytics and simple steps for adopting more analytics-driven processes.
Ables will also be presenting the session, “Better Together: Microsoft Teams and Dynamics 365.” In this session he will describe how to get the most out of the Teams integration with Dynamics 365 with practical case studies on how companies have used the integration. Attendees will learn how to setup the Teams/Dynamics 365 integration, practical ways to use Microsoft Teams with Dynamics 365 and understanding and working around the limitations.
Ables is the author of “The LUCK Principle: Business Results at the Intersection of People & Profit.” In the book he teaches how to harness the power of people, process and technology to transform a business into a digital workplace that balances a people-first culture with bottom-line results. The book is available in both paperback and Kindle versions on Amazon at https://www.Amazon.com/dp/B01N0QW5H4.
