About me.

Hey, Dmitry Katson on the line

I finished St. Petersburg Polytechnic University in 2007, Faculty of Physics and Mathematics. I started working during my 2nd year of university. My first employer was the biggest Gold Partner where I first met Navision. It was almost 20 years ago… Wow, it seemed to be like yesterday.

After 2 years, I moved to the customer side, an international Tech company, which used Navision 3.7 worldwide. It was a wonderful period, I traveled a lot, met new people, solved thousands of cases, and made upgrades. I learned a lot about what users expect from the system, what they hate and love.  

I co-founded NavDesign and put there all acquired experience and passion. I saw a big perspective in NAV flexibility, simplicity, and extensibility. Focused on the creation of ISV solutions which helped thousands of people every day. We raised from 3 people to 17 in 3 years. Then the political situation changed, and I sold the company. 

At those moment the AI buzz was growing, and I believed in its power. 

I headed the cloud development department of a big Tech company from the country’s Top-10 list, where learned AI and Machine Learning. 

That was a fun time. But the company was not focused on Business Central (ex. Navision). My heart was with BC, so I decided to quite.

I founded Katson.com. With the vision to enrich Dynamics 365 Business Central with modern AI-powered smart applications i helped many partners to transform their ISV solutions and move them to the AppSource. 

In 2018 I was awarded as Microsoft MVP. Was a speaker in many industry-top conferences: Directions ASIA, EMEA and North America, Days of Knowledge and NAVTech Days, huge number of meetups and local events. Was one who organized AI Bootcamp in Russia. 

In 2020 relocated to a beautiful island Koh Samui, Thailand. 

My passion is to generate new ideas and bring them to life.
