Goals for our content

What makes our event stand out from the rest is the unique content provided by the Dynamics 365 community. eXtreme365 is looking for experienced thought leaders who are willing to share their unique insights on relevant topics.
This event has evolved from eXtremeCRM to eXtreme365, now addressing all aspects of the Intelligent Business Cloud. Please consider submitting session ideas for any of the following product categories.

  • Dynamics 365 Enterprise – CRM & Operations (AX)
    AppSource
    Flow
    Azure Services
    Power BI
    Dynamics 365 Business Edition – CRM & Financials
    PowerApps
    Common Data Model
    Cortana
    Azure IoT

eXtreme365 sessions are 75 minutes to give plenty of time to deep dive into topics and for Q&A. Sessions are known for:

Deep, advanced real-world technical content (300 – 400 level) for consultants, architects and developers
Real-world best practices in the Sales and Marketing track to better market/sell/compete/win more customers
Effective demonstration techniques to enhance pre-sales/demo skills

All topics should appeal to experienced partners

To accomplish these goals, we look for the following when reviewing and selecting sessions:

Unique session content – not previously presented elsewhere and not easily found on the internet.
Technical sessions at the 300 – 400 level on topics that are difficult to find in other places.

Developer sessions – Sessions that identify problem, explain solution and show code developed to accomplish it. Presenters should not violate any IP restrictions from customers. This might mean a code rewrite if necessary.

Sales & Presales sessions – Best practices in selling the value of Intelligent Business Cloud, demonstration tips and tricks, competitive selling, increasing close rates etc.

Marketing sessions – Address the topics of digital marketing and adapting modern marketing strategy to address the buying behaviors of today’s customer.

Sessions will utilize real-world examples whenever possible.

All track sessions are educational in nature. If you wish to highlight your specific product in an ISV Showcase, please fill out a request on the Sponsor Inquiry page.

We will work diligently to finalize the agenda 60-90 days prior to the opening of the conference and confirm with those selected the sessions that were selected and their placement on the agenda. For those that do not get selected we will notify the authors 30 days prior to the conference.
Presenters will meet with eXtreme Team members and/or members of our Content Advisory Council to ensure high quality sessions.
