WHITEPAPER | Microsoft Announces Dynamics 365
On July 6, Microsoft announced Dynamics 365, a new approach to business applications that brings together Dynamics CRM, AX, and Office 365 with a unified application platform and data model. Building on the capabilities of Power BI and PowerApps, this new approach further democratizes the development of business applications and gives Microsoft a powerful competitive weapon against standalone ERP and CRM players. CRM and ERP applications have traditionally been bought separately, or at least by different buyers, and few other players offer a common platform and data model for CRM and ERP – and none bring
in the Office productivity capabilities as Microsoft can.
