Dynamics Hotdish

Dynamics Hotdish came together through friendship formed in the Microsoft Dynamics CRM community. We realized that we enjoyed discussing Dynamics with each other and wanted to share our knowledge and experience back into the community. Our weekly content is aimed at all levels of Dynamics “CRM” and Power Platform experience, with some episodes digging into technical features, and others focused entirely on figuring out how to solve business problems. We’ll be having casual conversations on topics we think are important, but if you’re looking for the latest on cutting edge features or top 10 lists, try a different podcast!

Merlin Schwaiger

Power Platform Advocate, Principal Solutions Architect @ Avtex

Merlin started his career in generic IT – managing servers, network equipment, and replacing broken keyboards. One day, having had enough of troubleshooting Exchange server, he decided to specialize in something, and picked the fledgling Dynamics CRM product (then v1.2 and before the Dynamics brand) as the thing he’d specialize in. Fast forward 15 years later and Merlin firmly believes that the Power Platform is a fundamental shift in thinking for CRM and business applications in general, giving us all greater access to technology to solve business problems. A true believer in the technology, he built a solution in CRM 2011 to manage his wedding, capturing RSPVs, meal choices, and gifts – and then shared it with others to use and improve. He loves to share his opinions with others, so it’s convenient Ashley was willing to podcast with him.

Ashley Steiner

Dynamics 365 Independent Consultant

Ashley started her career in Digital Marketing but found a love for connecting business processes with technology when she started using Dynamics as an end user with version 4.0. After learning how to customize version 2011 in a broom closet, Ashley decided to make Dynamics her full-time career and passion and chase jobs, speaking opportunities, user groups, webinars, and networking opportunities all over the country. Ashley enjoys enabling the salesperson’s CRM experience to increase productivity, organization, and sales funnel. Ashley earned the Microsoft Business Applications MVP award in early 2022. Ashley met Merlin when he worked for a previous partner Ashley’s company employed. Through the community, Ashley and Merlin were able to stay friends and as they say, the rest is history!
