Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella shared his vision for Dynamics 365 and we were uber excited about the opportunities it created!
Here is why you should be excited about Dynamics 365:
1) Begin with Necessities
Through the new cloud model, start with the edition and applications you need so you don't have to deploy an enormous ERP and CRM project with a tortoise-walking long timeline. You have a unified platform that has all the productivity, business process, and analytical tools at your disposal to turn on and of as needed.
2) Industry and Role Specific Extensions in AppSource
Microsoft AppSource is a new place to research, discover, and try apps built for Dynamics 365 at your own pace.
3) Added Value from Cloud Solution Providers (CSP)
You have one vendor to call when you need something and you get one bill for all Microsoft and Micro Force add-on services. Plus, like any cloud platform, you have the flexibility to scale users up and down as needed.
4) Seamless Integrations with a Unified Platform
You can run your business and make better decisions at cloud speed. Since it is all built on a common data model, it is easier to integrate, deploy, and manage for the long term.
5) Productivity Arises Where You Most Need It
Dynamics 365 brings together the power of Microsoft's productivity tools (Office 365, Yammer, Skype for Business, OneNote, etc.) with structured process and transaction driven applications like ERP and CRM. Outlook is smart enough to recognize the context of email threads, while automatically linking to referenced sales orders and highlighting KPIs right in the interface.
6) Any Business Process or Data on The Go
With the power of the common data model, Flow, Power BI, and PowerApps, you can create and extend any business process or data set on the go. When you combine the universal workflow engine of Microsoft Flow and the mobile app builder found in PowerApps, you've got the power to create some real results.
7) Built-In Intelligence and Advanced Analytics
Dynamics 365 brings advanced analytics to your fingertips with Power BI, Cortana Intelligence, Azure Machine Learning, and IoT offerings. No other system provides more access to easy-to-use intelligence tools. At all levels of the organization, employees will have real time visibility into accurate data they can trust to help them do their job better.
8) Ability to Differentiate Your Business
Digital transformation is faster than ever with the cloud-based Dynamics 365 offering from Microsoft. The difference between using Dynamics 365 and a more traditional system is like the difference between driving a 2018 Audi and a 2002 Nissan Altima. It’s easy to pick up, which leads to users feeling empowered enough to perform to the best of their ability. With the appealing speed, flexibility, and effectiveness of Dynamics 365, you can now easily speed past your competition, while they continue to cut corners and move at the speed of a sloth.
Dynamics 365 is light years ahead of any other Tier-1 solution and sets a high bar for any future of business applications that try to catch up. Don't get left behind!
