New 5 Minute Friday Video Series

So Starting last week, I have begun a series of 5 minute videos on tech subjects. I have deliberately made the decision to keep them to around 5 minutes (not that easy!) so they can remain snappy, but at the same time, not put a massive load on my already busy schedule. Theyre basically going to be quick how to videos, on subjects that I have had issues with, or learned. First one is up!… Continue Reading Rob Peledie’s...

1 Year of Working From Home

So, give or take a few days, many of us have been almost exclusively working from home for the last year. I know some organisations have allowed a staggered return, with minimal personnel in at the same time, but for the most part, many who work in the world of technology have been remote. Prior to all this madness, not everyone had the opportunity to work remotely. Many organisations… Continue Reading Rob Peledie’s...

Crypto Currency Blog Posts?

While my “Normal” day-to-day work revolves around Microsoft Business Solutions, mostly Dynamics 365 and the Power Platform, I have a massive interest in Crypto Currency – Not just the potential for investment, but the whole concept of a decentralised platform. So, with that in mind, I was thinking about sprinkling in the odd article on Crypto Currency dealing and Mining. Question… Continue Reading Rob...

Well……That was 2020

Well that was a challenging year! Thats probably a massive understatement, and Ive been very fortunate, that even though I faced some early challenges as a small consultancy, we have kept working on projects throughout the year, and (at the moment) 2021 looks ok. I will just say at this point, that I also know many consultants and contractors that have struggled with projects and contracts,… Continue Reading Rob Peledie’s...

Keep your Eyes on The Road

created by dji camera If you’ve been working in the world of Microsoft Business Applications for a while, you’ll no doubt be used to change – CRM, xRM, Dynamics 365, PowerApps, Power Apps, CDS, Dataflex, Dataverse etc. Even icons, logos change! It’s really important therefore that we keep up to date, not only with the updated terminology, but with changes in the platform, licensing and… Continue Reading...

WaterScrumFall – Does it exist?….Should it?

So this is a serious question……and I know it’s going to provoke lots of comments and feedback, and probably a bit of old time flaming. The reason I ask is that, I’m agile through and through. It just works. If you’re managing a development team (and its done well), Agile just works. Everyone knows what they’re doing…. Stakeholders can see progress….. efficiency goes up. But…. There...

Query Dynamics 365 / CDS Data With SQL

Query Dynamics 365 / CDS Data With SQL

So fairly recently Microsoft announced the ability (in preview) to query CDs data with SQL – as opposed to Fetchxml as we have been used to with online. I will write up a fuller discussion of this, once I have had a proper play, but there were some issues with setting this up, so I put together a short (ish) video to walk through the steps.

Consuming an Open API and JSON in Power Apps – 101

It’s been a while since I wrote anything too technical, and I’ve had a chance during this lockdown to brush up on some stuff I haven’t really played with in Power Apps,  so  thought I would look at something a little different….. connecting and consuming an Open API, and consuming the results in a Power App.  Before I get started, there is also a video to go with this article <div… Continue Reading Rob...

Common Data Model Vs Common Data Service

I thought I would put together a short explanation of Microsoft’s Common Data X conventions, and specifically what the meaning and differences are between CDM and CDS. One of my drivers for this is that I didn’t fully understand it myself, or at least I find it difficult to articulate the definitions, and there’s surprisingly little about the connection between the terms…. So let’s… Continue Reading...

On one of the forums I frequent, someone asked the question “What’s the difference between Flow and Logic Apps”. Well the quick and simple answer is that in a lot of ways, they’re the same thing…… However, that’s not the real answer or the complete picture. There are a...
