We’re bringing our BizApps community together for the first-ever Microsoft Business Applications Summit, *the* place for Dynamics 365, Power BI, Excel, PowerApps and Flow superfans to connect, collaborate and pack in as much learning as possible, July 22-24 in Seattle. Whether you’re a BizApps whiz or one in the making, this all-new conference has something for you.


Get inspired – Closing keynote with Malcolm Gladwell

Hear from bestselling author and like-minded analytics aficionado Malcolm Gladwell in a special closing keynote. A pop-culture detective who uses data to drive insights about the everyday – and to uncover fads, trends and subcultures we never knew existed – Gladwell brings new clout to analytics and intelligence. He’s a 20+-year New Yorker staff writer with a deep affinity for data, and his 10-part podcast Revisionist History is currently in its second season.

In his keynote, he’ll explore how data and analytics can drive large-scale change, and how business intelligence can help you positively disrupt your org.
