Automation Summit Agenda

Speaker Sessions Title Description
Track 1
Phill Topness 09:00 -Microsoft Keynote Automation Summit is Excited to host this years Keynote with Principle Program Manager at Microsoft PowerCAT
Jason Coombes Faiz Muhammad Nihal Mushtaq Amin 10:00 - Industry use case for automating manual business processes with AI and power platform Industry use case for automating manual business processes with AI and power platform .
Ilya Fainberg 11:00 - Build efficient Apps and Business Processes with Process Mining Process Mining is a way to get insights about the efficiency of your business processes or apps without building complex analytics.
Christian Bauer Jan Moritz Gerbracht 12:00 - Let's (Power) Automate all your documents with dox42

Developing custom solutions with document output is costly and time-consuming? Not anymore. Easily build your applications with Microsoft Power Apps and let dox42 take care of the document generation.

What you will see in this session:

  • Seamlessly integrate and set up your document generation Power Apps and Flows.
  • Generate your documents where you need them: from a Power App, a Power Automate Flow or directly in your Dynamics 365 applications or SharePoint/Teams.
  • Easily design complex documents in MS Word, Excel and PowerPoint with tables, conditions, barcodes, charts, images, etc.
  • Combine data sources: Dataverse, SharePoint, M365, D365 FinOps, CE & BC, Web Services, SQL and many more.
Feline Parein 14:00 - How to develop enterprise critical applications with the Power Platform How do you develop a big Power App in a team? Based on a real-life scenario we will discuss our environment strategy, our solution strategy and how we co-developed on a single Power App.
Daniel Laskewitz 15:00 - Extend the Power Platform with Custom Connectors There are a lot of extensibility options in the Power Platform. One of those is custom connectors. Of course, the Power Platform already has 800+ connectors, but sometimes you miss a connector, an action, or a trigger. Microsoft offers the option to create custom connectors for that. These connectors allow users to connect to and integrate with various external data sources, such as web services or databases, and use that data in their Power Apps, Power Automate cloud flows, and Logic Apps. In this session, Daniel will build a custom connector step by step and show you what you should be aware of when working on custom connectors.
Dieter De Cock 16:00 - Digital Transformation through Automation Center Of Excellence Digital transformation is changing industries in profound and surprising ways. One of the most powerful in enabling business to gain a competitive advantage may surprisingly not affect customers at all—it's Hyper automation / robotic process automation (RPA). By using software robots, RPA's technology makes it easy for companies to emulate human actions interacting with digital systems and software. Enterprise organizations have been using RPA to increase efficiency, connect with legacy systems, reduce mistakes, and improve security. Join us for this session where we’ll demonstrate how organizations are doing enterprise-wide rollout of automation with RPA and beyond.
Track 2
Tomasz Poszytek 10:00 - Cloud flows debugging and error handling Have you seen the scope control in list of Power Automate actions? Have you ever thought how to use it and basically, why is it there? Have you had problems with making your cloud flows to work as expected? Do you struggle with learning why your flows are failing? If any question rings you a bell, this session is for you!
Eickhel Mendoza 11:00 - Improve the performance of your Cloud Flows in Power Automate Power Automate is a platform that aims to improve business processes with a series of actions that help streamline existing operations. During this talk, I will show you some tips to improve the performance of Flows connected to SharePoint, Azure SQL and some general tricks to get the most out of your solutions.
Peter Baddeley 12:00 - Building Better Flows: A Five Step Guide How many people have built a Flow in a rush and wish they could go back to change it now? How many people have inherited a Flow that has a step called compose 7? How many people have built a Flow straight against a live SharePoint Site?
Diego Domingos da Silva 14:00 - Power Platform Solutions: Package your apps and flows and save yourself from future headaches Are your apps and flows all over the place or split through multiple environments? Have any of your flows ever broke because the author has left the company? Learn some simple techniques that will help you cleanup your environments, make your apps scalable and future proof as well as scaling up apps and flows already being used.
Peter Baddeley 15:00 - Deep Dive into Integrating Model Driven Apps with SharePoint The Dataverse is not the best place to store Documents and SharePoint is a terrible relational database. Together they can be used as a platform for building solutions to manage your business. However, the out of the box integration does not reflect how many organisations want to manage the SharePoint architecture. Calling on over 10 years experience integrating the two platforms Peter Baddeley assess the options available. He will explain the core components that make the integration work and how organisations can leverage that to build their own architecture.
Magnus Sørensen 16:00 - Automated in-memory testing of Power Automate Flows Tools like FakeXrmEasy and XrmMockup allows a developer to mock a Dataverse environment so their plugins can be run locally. In this session, I will show how the Power Automate Mock-Up tool can mock Power Automate Flows and together with XrmMockup can test business logic that executes back and forth between Power Automate Flows and plugins. This adds a new dimension to automated testing in Dataverse that will create more durable applications.
Track 3
Miguel Verweij 10:00 - The Good, the Great, and the Mega of the Creator Kit Do you create Canvas Apps? Do you create Custom Pages? Do you want your app to look good? Do you spend too much time on all the control properties? Do you want to attend a session where you learn things you can implement right after?
Feline Parein 11:00 - Co-development in Power Apps, the different stages of working together Working together on a single Power App is not easy, but sometimes you have no other option. I will discuss different strategies you can use right away to help you manage your co-development. From solution strategies, working with components and even how to integrate git into your development cycle.
Devendra Salve 12:00 - Power Platform- The Pivot you need to Transform your Business Operations Despite the abundance of tools and applications available for business operations, value realization from them remains a challenge. Not only do they need to deliver business outcomes but have to feel bespoke to business-specific use cases. Power Platform is a set of low-code tools that enables you to create effective and adaptable solutions for your business challenges. A toolchain that enables the creation of a unified platform that seamlessly integrates data across Microsoft 365, Dynamics 365, Azure, and hundreds of other enterprise apps, to build comprehensive solutions. This session will demonstrate how Power Platform can transform your business operations with an industry case and live examples.

Magnus Sørensen 11:00 - Event-driven architecture with Dataverse In the world of custom development the concept of Domain Driven Design and Event Stores are becoming the preferred way to make durable applications. Dataverse can not store events in a reliable way, but it can pass them on and receive them in a reliable way. In this session, I will show the different alternatives in the Power Platform that can be used to pass events in and out of Dataverse to make a more durable application. You will get a taste of Domain Driven Design and the power it brings to an application.

Tomasz Poszytek Automate the impossible - where RPA steps in

Ever since companies started their journey to move IT to cloud, problem with old software, still being used, was getting more significant. But why should they replace it with new, cloud ready tools, if it still works and serves really fine its purpose? This is where Robotic Process Automation steps in and does the job.

During this workshop you will learn:

* About RPA in Microsoft Power Platform,
* How to run cloud flows that includes local machine steps,
* How to use Power Automate Desktop,
* Tips&Tricks to make your desktop flows better and more efficient.

Whenever you need to include legacy software in modern, cloud based workflows, RPA sounds like the ultimate solution. However, it's good to know its pros and cons to wisely make that choice.
