Hosted sessions

Add some magic to Business Central with Machine Learning
LEVEL: 200 - Intermediate
Room 5

For a decades programmers used algorithms to solve specific problems. But did you know that ‘if-else’ is not the only way to write code? Did you know that your data can be an algorithm itself!

Yes - true.

All we need is to use data in a smart way. And that’s where Machine Learning can help.

In this session we will see

  • what general problems could be solved through machine learning?
  • what is machine learning itself?
  • how can YOU solve your customer problems with machine learning?

At the end we will see how using Dynamics 365 Business Central and machine learning in pairs, you can quickly solve problems that were previously very difficult to solve or not solved at all.

Detailed agenda:

  • Understanding customer request
  • Data search and preprocessing
  • Azure Machine Learning Studio
  • Choosing right algorithm
  • Publishing and AML web services
  • Presenting predictions on Power BI reports
  • Prediction from Dynamics 365 Business Central

You will leave the session with the realization of a completely new approach to solving problems and understanding the tools and techniques for applying this approach in real life.

Have you ever ordered a dish in a cafe, but you were told that it was not available?

I did. This is a very unpleasant situation. And for both parties.

The cafe can lose the client, simply because the demand was incorrectly predicted.

In this workshop we will see how machine learning can solve this problem. What general problems can be solved through machine learning? And what is it? A fashion word or a working tool?

We will see how using Dynamics 365 Business Central and machine learning in pairs, you can quickly solve problems that were previously very difficult to solve or not solved at all.
