01:13 thank you Michael I am super excited to

01:17 be here and loving being part of this

01:20 thank you for including me and taking

01:25 some of my suggestions so yeah so with

01:29 this new format what we're gonna be

01:31 doing is each podcast we're gonna focus

01:35 on one specific craft brew we're gonna

01:41 figure out we're going to talk a little

01:42 bit about the brewer where it's made and

01:46 a little bit some fun facts about the

01:48 beer maybe and then of course you know

01:52 we're gonna have to share our thoughts

01:54 on the beer with you as we go through

01:57 this so we're going to talk about beer

02:00 we're also going to talk about shots

02:02 except right not shots like what you're

02:06 thinking but shots of business central

02:10 so some news updates

02:13 feature spotlights and also some app

02:17 spotlights where we're gonna we're gonna

02:19 focus on some apps that are available an

02:21 app source talk about those a little bit

02:24 and so yeah so I'm drinking taking a

02:28 drink right now here and let's do a

02:30 little quick toast to right to our first

02:33 shot of business central with the beer

02:35 pot right first one and we're gonna get

02:37 it rolling here so right off the bed

02:41 it's a it's a very good beer what is it

02:47 yeah no Three Floyds yeah so what we're

02:51 drinking is a beer called zombie dust

02:53 hahaha

02:55 so zombie dust is probably the the most

02:58 well known of beers that are made by a

03:03 brewery called Three Floyds brewing

03:06 which is based in Munster Indiana this

03:10 is kind of a local yeah local to us here

03:13 in the Chicago area they're just right

03:15 across the Indiana border off of us just

03:18 south of i-80 interstate 80 not too bad

03:21 no so so they're right there they have a

03:23 tasting room founded by you know two two

03:26 brothers and their dad back in the late

03:29 1990s 1996 I think and relatively new

03:34 yeah so so they've been sent in 2000

03:38 they moved to a new facility in Munster

03:40 Indiana and and I think they're broke

03:43 their beers are available throughout I'm

03:45 not sure regionally or probably or

03:48 nationally I do know that in 2018 Three

03:54 Floyds says here a crap cracked the top

03:58 50 list of brewing companies by sales

04:02 volume so they're number 49 overall

04:06 brewery sales very nice

04:08 so I'm guessing they must be must be a

04:11 national brand but but this one here

04:14 zombie dust it's always hard it's always

04:18 been hard to get really

04:19 so I think they you know hoggle an area

04:21 you mean or

04:22 think everywhere I think you know it's

04:25 it's it's available year-round if you go

04:27 to their brewery and in Indiana but

04:32 trying to find it in a store has

04:34 historically been very difficult just

04:36 because of the demand so why did you

04:38 pick this beer this localized in Indiana

04:40 are you a Notre Dame fan well no as this

04:44 is our first segment I wanted to start

04:49 with the best haha so for me this is the

04:53 gold standard this is your gold fan this

04:55 is it yeah I'm a little biased I grew up

04:59 not far from Munster Indiana so I'm able

05:03 to frequent their brewery quite a bit in

05:06 my opinion this is one of the original

05:09 beers that started the whole craft

05:12 graduation scene and specifically Pale

05:15 Ales American Pale Ales IPAs or India

05:18 Pale Ales it's officially an American

05:21 pale ale or APA but it's it's that

05:26 fruity super hoppy a little bit sweet

05:30 mm-hmm beer it's made with like Citra

05:33 hops yeah definitely get the super hoppy

05:34 part you know 6.2 percent alcohol so

05:38 it's it's stronger than like a Miller

05:41 bud product yeah but it's not you don't

05:44 taste that alcohol right no no no that

05:47 alcohol like some of those 10 or 12%

05:49 beers yeah yeah you don't really enjoy

05:52 it as much you don't taste it so so I'm

05:54 gonna so I'll you know admit that in my

05:59 beer rating if you know on so on our

06:01 scale of 0 of 0 to 100 in rating a beer

06:05 for me

06:06 zombie dust I'm gonna put that right at

06:08 the top really at a hundred yeah

06:10 hahahaha so so now there's no we know

06:13 set on the bar as yeah we got to find

06:15 something better than going forward

06:16 right away right at least to match it

06:19 maybe maybe exceed it meter you know

06:21 what maybe I'm gonna go 9800 just leave

06:25 a little bit of room I'm gonna go

06:26 ninety-eight I want to give myself a

06:27 little bit of leeway in the future if

06:29 you happen to

06:29 across something that's that's even a

06:32 little bit better I want to leave some

06:34 room for there so how about yourself I'm

06:37 gonna put this at about I give it a

06:41 solid 94 it's a really good beer I tend

06:45 to prefer more Mexican beers so that's

06:48 why those those are gonna be more and

06:49 more of my top tier beers but just

06:52 because of it like a lager Pilsner yeah

06:55 exactly

06:56 Corona Corona Modelo Pacifico not bad

07:02 Tecate it's not too bad yeah I'm gonna

07:05 put it a good solid 94 it's a really

07:07 good beer hoppy I wouldn't say I would

07:12 crack it open on a hot summer day though

07:14 yeah have you yeah it's a little bit

07:16 more heavy then yeah I agree

07:19 hot summer day after I've been doing

07:21 something outside light like yeah I see

07:28 that yeah Corona Lite kind of comes to

07:30 mind for me yeah I'm sitting on a super

07:33 hot day yeah really thirsty all right

07:36 right yeah you're not gonna be lighter

07:38 you're probably not gonna drink a dozen

07:39 of these no all this is more sit back

07:41 and relax

07:42 you got a nice cigar or something Julia

07:45 exactly yeah so so that's our focused

07:50 beer we'll probably come back through as

07:51 we go throughout the rest of this

07:53 podcast and talk about it a little bit

07:56 more and ask some more questions of each

07:58 other and then yeah see how it gets as

08:01 it warms up yeah so I think in our next

08:06 that's about it here of our next segment

08:07 we're gonna be following this following

08:10 up this beer with a shot business not a

08:13 business central alright so we're gonna

08:15 talk a little bit about business central

08:18 it's been a while since our last podcast

08:20 so there's been many things that have

08:21 happened a lot of new features a lot of

08:25 developmental new features for that as

08:29 well so Ken what you got over there you

08:32 got anything to talk about for yeah I

08:34 think you know along with what you're

08:36 saying I think it's we should start with

08:38 a timeline recap

08:39 Piron so like what's been going on let's

08:42 go back to last fall so last fall around

08:45 October Microsoft came out with this new

08:50 product Microsoft Dynamics 365 business

08:55 central long name and you know really

09:01 what that was is is it's a new product

09:04 that's based on a previous previous

09:08 solution right Microsoft Dynamics NAV

09:10 right and what Microsoft did was

09:13 obviously kind of gave it a fresh name

09:15 Dynamics 365 business central but also

09:19 delivered it kind of as two separate

09:21 solution two different options two

09:23 different deployment solutions so you

09:26 you have the big the big major news was

09:30 that there's a Microsoft hosted version

09:32 right that's animal completely run on

09:36 Microsoft's cloud all you pay is a

09:38 monthly subscription fee per user and

09:42 Microsoft deals with the infrastructure

09:44 they deal with the upgrading and keeping

09:47 you current and on the releases so

09:51 that's really the the big announcement

09:54 but they also took nav which it was

09:57 previously known rebranded it as

09:58 Dynamics 365 business central and call

10:01 that the on-premise version so for those

10:06 who are running nav or have always the

10:09 were otherwise loved nav and want to use

10:12 it or considering using it it is still

10:15 available Microsoft Dynamics 365

10:17 business central on-premise now does it

10:21 have a lot of the same functionality as

10:24 they have a lot of the same look it has

10:27 almost these full functionality between

10:31 both products there are there are going

10:35 to be certain advantages if you're

10:37 running on the Microsoft cloud version

10:39 where some of the integrations with if

10:42 you're running office 365 or some of the

10:46 Cortana artificial intelligence or power

10:48 bi those integrations are

10:51 blurt is set up there like automatically

10:54 enabled if you will because you're

10:55 authenticating through office 365 so

10:58 there are going to be some some

11:00 advantages to that but if for whatever

11:02 reason you still wanted an on-premise

11:06 solution or just full control over the

11:09 the administration of the sequel server

11:11 database or whatever you can still run

11:15 the traditional kind of quote on premise

11:18 version even if you're running that on

11:20 an on an azure server it's a private

11:23 cloud you can respectively create your

11:26 own private cloud and now you have full

11:28 administrative control over everything

11:30 very nice so is the private cloud

11:32 quicker than the multi-tenant cloud in

11:37 terms of speed mm-hmm

11:40 you know the performance I here's what I

11:42 would say is the the performance so far

11:44 we've had no negative feedback on the

11:46 performance of the Microsoft cloud

11:47 hosted version but having your own

11:52 private cloud or on-premise server does

11:55 give you yourself directly more control

11:59 over adding horsepower so if it is slow

12:02 you add as much RAM or processors as you

12:06 want right whereas other Microsoft

12:09 clouds hosted solution right Microsoft

12:14 Microsoft is responsible for making sure

12:16 your performance is good so companies

12:18 that are traditionally busier in a

12:20 certain season of the year can ramp up

12:23 power on their own cloud yes on their

12:27 own by that loud reset when they're not

12:29 as busy correct you could save them a

12:31 little bit of money yeah absolutely we

12:34 have customers that do that so the and

12:36 what it is is you basically kind of you

12:40 know temporarily shutdown and just

12:42 change your Azure resource allocation

12:46 and then you restart your business

12:49 central services and now you have

12:51 doubled or tripled or whatever it is

12:53 your horsepower and it's it's it's a

12:55 pay-as-you-go model so if you happen to

12:58 have that server jacked up for like two

13:01 days in four hours you pay

13:05 for that extra capacity for two days or

13:09 in four hours

13:09 oh very nice very nice and just so the

13:12 listeners know Kenya is obviously

13:14 business central nav expert and it's

13:18 kind of my job to try and stop them

13:19 during the podcast yeah I'm gonna give

13:25 you a question here let's see let's see

13:26 how it goes

13:28 business central full cloud multi-tenant

13:30 running in the cloud yeah how far back

13:33 can you retrieve information if

13:35 something crashes well they're in in

13:40 business central there is no there's

13:44 there's no automatic data deletion or

13:47 data archiving if you if you're using

13:50 business central you've got your posting

13:52 transactions in there those trains at

13:54 those posted invoices those general

13:57 ledger journal entries or receivable

13:59 entries they're there as long as you're

14:02 running so we have customers today that

14:05 are running Dynamics NAV right the

14:08 legacy that probably solution for

14:09 business central who have literally

14:12 twenty years of data that they've

14:15 accumulated within their database so do

14:18 you know that is it possible if somebody

14:19 deletes the data in the cloud to contact

14:22 Microsoft and have a restored or if well

14:26 I mean there are you mean someone at

14:29 your organization and say deletes a

14:31 company yeah the whole company yeah you

14:35 know what that's a good question oh it's

14:41 over so so one is one solution to that

14:46 is that they have created what they call

14:48 a sandbox environment so what you could

14:51 what the customer so the end user has

14:53 the ability to do is at any point they

14:57 can log into business central on the

14:59 cloud and they can create a sandbox

15:03 environment which is a full complete

15:06 copy of their live production

15:08 environment nice so they have all the

15:09 data backed up if they need yeah you can

15:11 use it obviously as backups or you could

15:14 use it as

15:16 for as a testing environment or training

15:19 environment right so there's a lot of

15:21 different ways that you can use that I'm

15:23 kind of have it there are also tools

15:25 that you can use if you're if the data

15:28 is this a concern where you can call

15:34 power a tool called power query yeah

15:36 where you can directly pull data out of

15:38 business central into tables or yeah

15:44 beautiful very good I just had

15:49 experiences I'll tell you later this is

15:51 yeah so yeah so so going back so that

15:56 was October right so since then

16:00 Microsoft on a regular basis they apply

16:03 updates fixes and things like that to

16:06 the cloud environment yeah and and then

16:09 they came out with a spring release so

16:11 this is April 2019 just last month

16:14 they came out with this April release

16:16 and this April release is for both the

16:18 Microsoft cloud hosted and the

16:21 on-premise version Oh which is different

16:23 usually than then they have update where

16:26 they said right generally once a year

16:27 right it previously was like on a roll

16:29 there's a nad 2015 2016 2017 now it's

16:34 more twice a year is the plan so what

16:37 will expect a fall and a spring release

16:41 coming out and and there's a document

16:44 that's published and it lists all of the

16:47 features that were released I don't want

16:50 to I don't want to get it spoil my next

16:52 segment here we'll put in the show notes

16:54 though so everybody can download yeah

16:55 look at it but there's there's a lot of

16:57 new features that came out so where

17:00 we're at right now so if you're running

17:02 business central in the cloud you may

17:05 say well hey it's May

17:07 I don't see my updates so during the

17:12 month of April Microsoft has been

17:14 rolling out the that spring release

17:17 updates to all the different business

17:20 central environments that it's hosting

17:21 right and it does that kind of piece by

17:24 piece we call them their home clusters

17:27 of environments so you may already have

17:30 your business central environment

17:34 updated you may not so what you want to

17:36 do is if you're running in the cloud go

17:39 to the global search type in system

17:41 information and if you see an update

17:43 that starts with fourteen point

17:45 something you're updated if you're at

17:47 thirteen point five something you have

17:49 not been updated yet right yep so and

17:55 also you do have the ability which is

17:58 really cool so let's say you haven't

18:00 been updated yet but you know there's

18:02 this release out there if you go in your

18:07 partner so something that we can do on

18:09 behalf of a customer is we have the

18:11 ability to build a new sandbox for our

18:14 customers who are running business

18:15 central and we can actually specify that

18:18 that sandbox uses the new version called

18:22 the preview version right so people can

18:25 test out things before right so you're

18:27 running your live up your live version

18:29 and hey there's this cool new spring

18:32 2019 update that's out there this allows

18:36 you to go in and actually build the

18:38 sandbox with your data and your

18:41 interventions and apps in there

18:44 and actually test it and see how it

18:46 works and make sure everything's gonna

18:48 work before you schedule and confirm

18:50 your live update I think they'll

18:53 regardless I think everybody has to be

18:55 updated no matter what eventually right

18:59 you can't hold off it's a no I don't

19:01 want that updated and not have it I

19:03 think so it might be a six month period

19:07 or something yeah now because so yeah

19:09 because you can write extensions you can

19:12 write your own individual apps if you

19:15 will for business central if we're you

19:17 know your specific environment something

19:20 unique that like your business does we

19:22 need to add these fields here so

19:25 Microsoft will run through they'll do

19:27 they'll test upgrade all the

19:29 environments and then it is possible

19:31 that there's some sort of conflict so

19:33 that update could fail right right but

19:36 yeah you're right there is a point where

19:39 I have to be on they will push you

19:41 eventually now we're still really new

19:44 right this is the first major updates

19:46 that's come out it's early May right now

19:49 there are some environments that are

19:51 still haven't been updated Microsoft is

19:54 working on those we're working on a

19:55 couple with them we you know so we

19:58 expect those issues are going to be

19:59 resolved shortly now and then we're

20:02 gonna share with you on this podcast our

20:05 experiences with updates and keep you up

20:07 to date on you know what's going on and

20:11 maybe give you some tips before you if

20:12 we decide for any sin division yeah hey

20:14 by the way don't do this or try to stay

20:17 away from this so so so that's kind of

20:20 where we're at it's it's it's being

20:22 deployed right now there are a ton of

20:26 new features that are that are in there

20:28 some pretty cool stuff we'll get to that

20:31 and a little couple minutes here but the

20:33 other kind of two things I wanted to

20:35 just touch on today was you know with

20:38 business central it is a cloud hosted

20:41 solution and Microsoft is regularly

20:45 applying updates on a regular basis yeah

20:48 but that does not mean that you can't

20:50 tailor it for your business but instead

20:55 of going in and updating the source code

20:56 you can't do that right because if

20:59 you're changing the source code how

21:00 could Microsoft then I go update it but

21:03 you can extend the functionality so they

21:06 call these extensions or that's our term

21:08 for like an app and what that means is

21:11 that we can take a piece of standard

21:13 functionality within business central

21:15 and we can add things to it so we can

21:17 add fields to the customer table we

21:20 could then add business logic that does

21:22 something with those fields or we add a

21:25 report right and it's we can virtually

21:28 add anything right there's really no

21:30 limit right to be done you need a whole

21:33 kind of module built we could build a

21:35 whole you know module within the

21:37 business central environment in the way

21:40 that we do that is through my Christine

21:44 derd Microsoft development tools and

21:46 this is one of the coolest new things is

21:49 that

21:50 the new dove the new they call it the

21:51 modern development environment you do

21:54 this using Visual Studio code which is a

21:58 Microsoft development tool yeah I think

22:01 it's I don't what don't quote me like

22:02 the number one used developer tool in

22:06 the world oh right so there are

22:08 literally you know thousands of people

22:10 all over the place that use Visual

22:12 Studio code to do their development for

22:16 various different solutions so for us

22:19 now in business central to be able to

22:21 leverage that huge community of

22:23 developers who can who now can go in and

22:27 with that without needing a special

22:30 license or certification right can go

22:32 begin building extensions for Business

22:35 Central it's huge yeah it's me a lot of

22:38 extensions out there really soon right

22:39 yeah yeah so so that's that's one thing

22:43 that we're really excited about here we

22:45 obviously are you know are building our

22:47 own extensions we're going on publishing

22:49 extensions an app source yeah we were

22:52 you know we're building custom

22:54 extensions for our customers as they

22:56 need it so those are things we're doing

22:59 every day but that's one of the one of

23:01 the cool coolest new things and kind of

23:03 the last kind of topic I wanted to touch

23:06 on for our shot of business central

23:09 today is the feedback feature and this

23:13 is central this is new so yeah you're in

23:15 business central right you've got some

23:17 icons up on the top right one of them is

23:20 feedback so if you click on feedback you

23:22 know you're looking for something you

23:24 don't like how something works yeah

23:26 click on feedback open it up and you can

23:30 directly provide your feedback to

23:33 Microsoft so right from business central

23:35 you can tell them whether or not you

23:36 like it or don't like it correct or say

23:38 or if you want to see something

23:39 different yeah hey why can't I also do

23:41 this yeah and here's great here's the

23:45 best part

23:45 so that's that's kind of cool because

23:47 before you'd have to go to a website

23:49 right yeah and I think it would go to go

23:53 to a website there was a feedback and I

23:55 got voted on or couldn't there was well

23:57 there was a community feedback site and

23:59 I'm gonna say

24:01 for my own person I want to speak for

24:03 anyone else I'm not really sure what

24:05 happened to that it kind of went out

24:08 into the ether sphere right hit say the

24:12 cloud and and whatever happened with

24:14 that be back well here's what's

24:16 different about business central all

24:18 that feedback is visible in there right

24:20 and then you can see how many other

24:24 people have voted on these different

24:28 feature requests can you feedback right

24:31 right from business central yes oh wow

24:33 so you can log in and go oh I I do a

24:37 search and you can search inside the

24:39 feedback for a certain thing you're

24:40 looking for payment terms so you search

24:43 in payment terms you you find four

24:45 articles and you can see that though

24:48 there's one similar to what you're

24:49 looking for and like four hundred people

24:51 have already voted on this or they like

24:54 it right so you know if it's popular or

24:55 whatnot and right the more popular

24:57 whatever has chances of it actually

25:00 you can also so yeah what what's what

25:04 are the what are the big things people

25:06 are asking for you can sort that list

25:09 based on the number of feedback lights

25:12 oh really so you can see what the most

25:14 popular thing is it's right so and then

25:17 what that means is you can now see what

25:20 are the features that are most likely to

25:23 be included in the next release because

25:26 Microsoft is using that yeah they're

25:29 looking at it and in the spring release

25:31 there have already been features that

25:34 we're sitting out there in the feedback

25:36 that now they they're listening ways

25:39 great I mean that's it's it's the

25:42 customers way of getting their voice

25:45 heard and getting the features that they

25:47 want Microsoft is actually listening

25:49 right not a lot of big companies do know

25:53 it's great to see that community

25:55 feedback no you see that and just to

25:58 know that you're not the only one

25:59 struggling with this or that others

26:00 would like it or maybe on the other hand

26:04 on the opposite right you're you're

26:06 you're asking for this go log in and

26:08 check up on it yeah wait no one else's

26:11 yeah no one else likes that

26:13 one else has feedback on that okay you a

26:15 little crazy with what you want it's

26:17 just maybe it's just you alright

26:19 so so that that's pretty cool I check in

26:23 on that periodically and see what some

26:25 of the most you know kind of that most

26:26 popular ones are yeah because it tells

26:29 me what what are the things that are

26:31 likely to maybe show up and then I

26:34 please I think what is it two months

26:36 before the actual next release which

26:38 will be in October so two months before

26:40 that Microsoft will release their

26:43 release notes which will detail what's

26:46 coming in the October release always two

26:49 months beforehand yeah so that is it for

26:52 my for my shot of you did my shot take a

26:58 swing of it well that's why I finished

27:00 my zombie dust oh nice I'm ready for

27:05 another ready for number two so alright

27:08 well start number two as we start the

27:10 next section alright alright so the next

27:15 feature section that we want to talk

27:17 about is well this is actually our

27:18 featured spotlight section is directions

27:21 there was actually a recent Direction's

27:24 conference in Las Vegas I had a lot of

27:27 attendees a lot of good information and

27:31 solution systems we had a couple people

27:33 attend and they brought back some

27:35 interesting tidbits yeah yeah so the

27:40 first one I know of is that the attend

27:41 the attendant attendee count was over

27:44 905 Plus which I believe is their

27:48 highest ever for directions I bet it is

27:51 yeah yep it's pretty uh just a lot yeah

27:55 I'm gonna I'm gonna crack myself another

28:00 yeah so yeah so you've been to it

28:05 directions I have right yeah where was

28:24 to be bussed in the Phoenix downtown so

28:27 it was built more Resort no no it was

28:31 okay something saloon nice place though

28:35 it was actually called saloon yeah well

28:36 something saloon unless I must have

28:38 missed that one I was at the first

28:40 Direction partner so directions I don't

28:43 know if everyone knows this so back in

28:47 2000 I'm gonna guess 2004 there was

28:52 there was really no get-together for

28:55 Microsoft Dynamics NAV partners to get

28:59 together and collaborate and talk right

29:03 and and get together with is B and you

29:07 know app vendors and things like that so

29:09 a group came up with this conference the

29:12 very first one was in Stone Mountain

29:13 Georgia South Side of Atlanta yeah and

29:17 so I attended that one and I was seeing

29:21 a so for so there have been probably

29:22 about 15 directions conferences 16

29:25 whatever it is I've been to about a

29:28 dozen of them Wow so I've missed a few

29:30 the first one how many people would you

29:33 say attended - you know it was more it

29:36 was like a few hundred yeah yeah more

29:39 than I would have expected yeah it was a

29:40 couple hundred people it's probably

29:43 there and then most of them over the

29:46 years you know it's funny there's

29:49 probably four to six hundred you know

29:53 probably around five hundred people six

29:55 hundred people but it's it's it's great

29:57 it's a great community mm-hmm you see

30:00 the same people every time you go you

30:04 can see the same sort of the same people

30:05 in each session that you go to right

30:07 right and and and it really creates a

30:11 good community

30:12 and I think that the Dynamics NAV

30:14 community and our business central
