PowerUp—The CRM Event, is less than a month away! The conference has two full-days of Dynamics CRM educational content tailored to everyone from beginning users to advanced administrators. If you’re looking for more hands-on training, you can also attend the PowerUp Pre-Conference Training day on Tuesday, September 23. This will be a full-day of training where attendees choose to take one of these three training courses:


Intro to Extending CRM

For those with existing programming experience, this course is designed to introduce you to the software developer’s toolkit (SDK) and the caveats of extending Microsoft Dynamics CRM. Covering JavaScript, plugins, custom pages, and portals at a high-level, this training will not be hands-on, but will provide time for questions and discussions on how to get started and where to find resources.

Marketing in a Whole New World

A new era of customer behavior means marketers are plotting a new course for their strategies, tactics, tools, staff, and partners. Get a framework for navigating this new world while using the functionality and data in CRM as your compass. Join us for this course to experience firsthand marketers’ best practices in building buyer personas, mapping the customer journey, building predictive lead scoring, tapping into emerging digital and mobile methodologies, and much more. You’ll also get an unprecedented view of updated marketing tools in the Microsoft Dynamics product line. For modern marketing leaders and technologists using Dynamics CRM, this is your can’t miss event of the season.
