Arend-Jan Kauffmann


Kauffmann IT Services
Freelance Dynamics NAV Consultant & Trainer

Arend-Jan Kauffmann is a freelance and independent Microsoft Dynamics NAV consultant and trainer. He has over 14 years of experience with Microsoft Dynamics NAV and over 25 years of experience in the IT industry.

With a strong focus on architecture, design and integration, he has worked in different roles and with a broad range of technologies and platforms, including C/SIDE development, Microsoft .Net, Microsoft Azure and Office 365. He strongly believes that knowledge increases by sharing it, not by saving it. By delivering trainings and being a frequent speaker at conferences, he can put this into practice.

Hosted sessions

Office 365 for NAV Techies
LEVEL: 300 - Advanced
Room 5

It is inevitable that Office 365 knocks on the door of NAV consultants. Over the last years we have seen an evolving integration between those products from Microsoft. Both are targeted to office workers and they expect us to have know-how of both products, how they must be implemented and how the integration works. Now the question is, do we leave the Office 365 playground to others, or do we embrace this opportunity? Get out from under that Dynamics NAV rock and meet the Office 365 world!

In this session we will look at Office 365 from a technical point of view. What does it take to implement Office 365? What knowledge do you need to have? We will look at setup, migration, licensing and management of Office 365. And of course we will look at the integration with Dynamics NAV. This will be combined with practical tips and tricks, based on years of experience with both Office 365 and Dynamics NAV.

Deep Dive Eventing & Extensions
LEVEL: 300 - Advanced
Conference Hotel

With Extensions in Microsoft Dynamics NAV we have a new method of distributing and deploying customizations or add-ons. The technology heavily depends on Eventing, another new technology that was introduced in Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2016.

In the next release of Microsoft Dynamics NAV the capabilities of Extensions will be expanded to enable more scenario’s. And according to Microsoft, Extensions become the way in which any project is customized and every add-on/vertical solution is built. And what’s more, Project ‘Madeira’, the SaaS offering of Microsoft Dynamics NAV only supports Extensions.

In this workshop we will deep dive in both Eventing and Extensions. In just one day we will cover the next topics:


  • Type of events
  • Publishing events
  • Finding events
  • Subscribing to events
  • Static binding and instance binding


  • Capabilities of extensions
  • Developing
  • Testing
  • Installing
  • Managing

Note: This is a one-day workshop which will be repeated on Wednesday.

This workshop is SOLD OUT (both days)!

  • “ This is THE tech conference in the NAV universe! As in the years before there is a lot of interesting input. All and all it is well organized conference, which I really like to attend for four years in a row now. ”

  • “ The pre-conference days were probably the highlight. The sessions that were run by experts in their areas were phenomenal. ”

  • “ Again I really love this conference. I appreciate the high level of speakers and sessions. ”

  • “ The best of NAVTechDays is the unique opportunity to meet fellow technically-inclined professionals, and being able to deep-dive into all things new. ”

  • “ Overall I thought it was very high quality, only one session I thought was a little too much of a stretch, but that's just my opinion, a very good event. Well worth the money. ”

  • “ The whole event is fantastic. I REALLY loved the pre-conference workshops, so I was very happy to hear that there will be two days next year. The food was great, the accommodation is great, SUPER seats and screen, having the sessions on video later is icing on the cake. ”

  • “ Absolute eye-opener. It helps to overcome fears of the unknown and stimulates the envy to try out new things. I am really very grateful to NAV TechDays and especially Luc Van Dyck to make this happen. ”

  • “ Great conference. The must attend conference for NAV developers. From a sponsor perspective this is the conference to sponsor if your target audience is technical decision makers. The NAV TechDays audience is full of CIOs, CTOs, IT Managers, developers, technical people from VARs. ”

  • “ As in the years before, the best place to get concentrated information about the upcoming technical road path and current development issues without any marketing mumbo-jumbo. That the group of the speakers is a blend with people from Microsoft and independent Partners alike is also an great asset to this event. ”
