Jens Møller-Pedersen

Engineering Manager, BC Server Runtime. Making it run faster

Jens has been with Microsoft for more than 20 years and has worked on the Business Central product (and previously Dynamics NAV) for most of this time. He is currently leading the Server Runtime team, so his everyday responsibility is to ensure that the BC backend is always stable and performant.

Kennie Nybo Pontoppidan works as program manager in the Dynamics 365 Business Central server backend team. He has been working in the dangerous field between customers, partners, support professionals, developers and dba's for many years and done his part of mistakes as a developer before that in his 18+ years in the it industry. He enjoys working with data and databases and really, really enjoys working using KQL. Kennie has no humor.
