Today we’re excited to announce that the group behind D365UG, AXUG, CRMUG, GPUG, and NAVUG has selected sa.global as a technology partner to assist with their growing Academy training program. Going forward sa.global will be providing the infrastructure, via an Azure-based custom-built solution, to host all Dynamics based hands-on labs. This will replace the aging on-premise hardware previously used and will provide a completely elastic experience for Dynamic Communities, vastly improving the performance of the labs for classes of any size. “We look forward to their Azure-based solution to continue to give User Group Academy students the robust hands-on learning experience they have come to expect from these premier training classes.” says Rich Beliveau, Dynamic Communities Academy & Credentialing Director. The User Group Summit North America in Orlando expects more than 1,000 students to attend this intensive Pre-Conference Academy Training and is always a highlight of the calendar year within the community. Jonathan Stypula, President of sa.global stated: “We’ve replaced their aging on-premise hardware with an all Azure-based training solution to host thousands of virtual machines at a time, supporting the largest in-person hands-on labs for Dynamics in the world. I’m really excited about it as we flex our Azure know-how a bit and also support the user community that we’re so very close with already.” Hopefully, through this partnership, more people are going to get their hands onto Dynamics ultimately extending the capabilities to leverage more of the great technology Microsoft is shipping to their customers monthly. The hope of this program is to improve product adoption and community outreach while showcasing the power of Azure at scale. Want to learn more from our Azure experts? Click here!
