About Me

My name is Alex Meyer and I graduated from Iowa State University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Engineering. My focus area in my degree is in networking and security. I am a current Microsoft MVP in Business Applications.

I currently work as the Director of Dynamics AX/365 Finance and Operations Development at Fastpath Inc. in Des Moines, Iowa.

Fastpath’s focus is on providing security, auditing, and compliance to ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) software to provide solutions for:

  • User access reporting
  • Segregation of duty analysis
  • Audit trail change tracking
  • User identity management
  • Security design
  • Periodic user access review certifications

In my role, I lead the development and maintenance of our .NET on-premise application and SAAS online application to provide a security analysis for customers using Microsoft Dynamics AX and Dynamics 365 for Finance & Operations (D365FO). This includes the integration of our application with Dynamics AX via .NET Business Connector and SQL and our integration with D365FO via REST web service APIs. It also includes the design and creation of the .NET middle-ware, and the generation of reports in SQL. To get feedback IĀ meet with our development team, clients, and audit partners to design new features and to troubleshoot and fix current bugs. A full listing of my skills and employment history can be foundĀ here.

I present sessions and webinars as a subject matter expert surrounding AX/D365FO security and native controls for both applications.

I thoroughly enjoy all kinds of software development and am always looking to learn new languages and design methodologies to improve my skill set.
