Dynamic Communities Launches Decision Acceleration Community: A Content & Event Platform to Propel the Quality & Velocity of Business Technology Decision Making
The Decision Acceleration Community (DAC) is a cloud-powered content and event platform that combines human and artificial intelligence (AI) to simplify the complex decisions that face people who manage technology in business. Companies will benefit by learning how they can grow ROI and reduce CAPEX spend by making quality business decisions in hours versus months and years through curated content, on-demand programming and "binge" style digital events.
The Decision Acceleration Community (DAC) is a cloud-powered content, community and event platform that combines human and artificial intelligence (AI) to simplify the complexity of enterprise-scale technology decisions. Serving CIO's, IT management/developers, finance, operations and other business professionals trying to manage through digital transformation, the DAC platform delivers curated, fact-based content, on-demand video programming, and digital & physical events from a peer perspective to help SMB and enterprise organizations grow ROI and reduce CAPEX spend in hours and days versus weeks, months and years.
According to KPMG, the top challenge to digital acceleration is difficulty making quick technology decisions. Forrester Research claims that 2021 will be the year that every company, not just the 15% of firms that were already digitally savvy, doubles down on technology-fueled experiences, operations, products, and ecosystems. In a new McKinsey global survey only 20% of respondents say their organizations excel at decision making, a majority say most of the time they devote to decision making is used ineffectively. Further analyses indicated that organizations that make decisions quickly are twice as likely to make high quality decisions. Faster decision making and faster execution of decisions both link to considerably higher returns.
"There may not be a more challenging and appropriate time in modern American history where Plato's proverb, Necessity is the mother of invention, could be timelier," said John Siefert, Dynamic Communities CEO. "Our motivation to reimagine the potential of Dynamic Communities with the Decision Acceleration Community is simple; heed the call for access to intelligence with a different, not just better, approach. Our mission is to propel the quality and velocity of business-technology decision making. With an incredible development team led by CTO Steve Arend, we will continue to enhance the platform over the coming months, but today we start helping hundreds of thousands of businesses grow ROI and reduce CAPEX spend by making quality business decisions in hours and days instead of months and years."
With incredible roots in the Microsoft Dynamics and Power Platform community, Dynamic Communities introduces DAC as this space is experiencing monumental shifts based on the impact of cloud migration, new automation systems, enhanced customer experience platforms, analytics, reporting, tax law changes and much more that businesses must make decisions on. With the ability for everyone in the business technology community to have their own profile page, publish or link share content and engage in discussions, DAC is built to serve as an everyday resource and a point in time event platform to bring like-minded professionals together around macro and micro themes impacting the market, their business and their jobs. Dynamic Communities will continue to support the strategy and direction of Microsoft as the traditional user base evolves to cloud-based customers or retains their on-premise systems.
To celebrate the launch, Dynamic Communities is hosting an inaugural digital event from 11am EST to 2pm EST Thursday, January 28th, featuring tech icon Bob Evans, creator of Cloud Wars, for a "Digital Acceleration Binge." The event will feature a series of short form "to the point" case study videos, threaded chats with speakers, and the ability for attendees to request discovery calls and live demos from sponsors, all in the DAC platform.
"Digital Acceleration Binge" will be available on demand for the community, searchers and guests to binge on at their convenience.
"The Decision Acceleration Community offers businesses a unique opportunity that is exceptionally important, because it eliminates the potential of an organization getting stuck in the analysis stage of making any key transformation decisions," said Digital Acceleration Binge day sponsor Brianne van Reenen, Director of Marketing for Njevity and their PowerGP Online product. "Instead, that organization's team can seek solutions in a single, informational, and community supported format ensuring their business problems will be solved by proven tools already used by thousands. Within hours, they can be on a path that drives the key initiatives and goals forward."
DAC Platform Technology
The DAC Platform integrates Artificial Intelligence (AI), Real Data, Machine Learning (ML), Automation, and Human Intelligence IQ-based decisions.
As each user enters the DAC ecosystem as a guest, they are invited to personalize their digital feed of content to maximize content purpose priorities for extreme efficiency. The process puts the user in charge of choosing topics that are curated via the DAC personalization algorithm. This optimizes content based on thematic category, context of the content, products & platforms, channels and finally by vertical market. Once the user personalizes their feed, they have their own public and private profile page with the ability to publish content, share links, save content to their bookshelf, follow other users, ask questions, and more.
As digital transformation becomes digital acceleration and eventually digital business, decision making demands a peer perspective that aligns strategic goals and priorities with technology and systems.
The DAC content filter prioritizes user content according to the business, process and customer value enabled by the solutions powering the future of work.
The DAC 'real world' content network delivers first person perspective with each post and clearly defines the content's purpose to inform, influence or accelerate the decision-making process.
Automated Content Refresh
Upon set-up completion the DAC refresh algorithm updates data and content sources for each user feed up to five times daily.
DAC Peer Perspective
Peer perspective accelerates any decision-making process. DAC enables interaction and communication through the ability to discuss, debate and define potential technology solutions that meet business, process and customer needs and requirements. From local like-minded groups that can meet digitally or in-person, to asking questions that reach people with specific domain expertise, DAC has designed and optimized its system to quickly and efficiently organize the process and time to connect with ecosystem peers that have measurable success.
Peer Perspective gives you the choices to:
Organize and schedule meetings
Invite members to join meetings
Host virtual meetings via a supplied Zoom license
Chat with members
Post and share content

"COVID-19 was a wake-up call for Solver," said Tad Remington, Chief Commercial Officer for Solver. "Traditionally customers discovered how Solver could help them innovate at conferences and we realized in the Spring of 2020 the outlook did not look good for Fall in-person conferences. Therefore, Solver increased dramatically its focus on search engine optimization (SEO), but was still lacking a way to reach out to our target audience - Microsoft Dynamics customers. When we learned Dynamic Communities, with the largest Microsoft Dynamics and Power BI user group community, was launching an innovative platform for customers to discover new innovations and solutions, Solver was all-in to be part of the Decision Acceleration Community (DAC)."
