Performance is one of those things you can’t get enough of and NAV is one of those systems where an extra operation per second is always welcome. Yesterday, during the Expert Panel at the NAV day of the Decisions Spring conference, there was a question: is there any improvement in how NAV 2013 works on SQL Server.
And the answer is: oh yeah!
As a matter of fact, everything is new and improved.
Jörg has already posted an overview of the news of NAV on SQL Server in his last blog post, but I still think there’s room for a couple of more words on the really amazing palette of news and improvements.
If you are a follower of Mibuso.com you may already know that they are organizing NAV TechDays in Antwerp, Belgium, on September 29 and 30, a conference dedicated to all NAV developers, solution architects and technical folks in general. The content will be strictly technical, and speaker list includes a lot of Who’s Who of NAV folks including Michael Nielsen and Freddy Kristiansen, and MVPs including Eric Wauters, Jörg Stryk, and me.
It will be two days full of exciting technical sessions, mostly discussing the upcoming NAV 7 release, Cloud computing, integration and extensibility of NAV through .NET and web services, and development in general.
I hoped to deliver a session about .NET interoperability, but Microsoft folks seem to have reserved it for themselves, so I’ll deliver a still nice session about testability features and how to use them to customize NAV bug-free.
If by now you are not in the “where do I click to register” mood, then let me know that if you register by June 30, you may win one of the two iPad 2 devices that nice folks at Mibuso.com are giving away to two lucky participants.
It seems like yesterday that I was posting about this last time, but time does run fast. And so do technology and innovation. Decisions virtual conference is here again, this time in its Fall 2010 edition, bringing a lot of fantastic content split into four separate tracks (AX, GP, NAV and CRM) delivered over four days, starting with November 1. For me, and I believe you too, the most important day is the NAV day, which will be delivered on November 3.
