Microsoft push cloud with new Dynamics 365 Software
Microsoft’s business apps in the cloud are about to become much easier to navigate. Five years after Microsoft unveiled Office 365, the company have announced the Dynamics 365, which will combine its sales and resource planning software into the same suite. The new layout will group together Microsoft’s cloud apps for businesses, such as marketing, operations, sales and service all into the same place.

In the latest of a string of developments that have taken place since Satya Nadella took over as Microsoft’s chief executive in early 2014, Dynamics 365 will revitalise the enterprise and cloud offerings and simplify it for those customers that have found aspects of the cloud sometimes confusing.

Microsoft are aiming to unify its cloud offerings to assist back-office functions such as human resources and financial management, otherwise known as enterprise resource planning—or ERP—with its sales tools, known as customer relationship management, or CRM. By combining the services, Microsoft are hoping to make it easier for companies to both buy and manage those apps.
 
“We’ve always had entries in these categories, but it’s really important and exciting to bring them together for a business perspective,” says Takeshi Numoto, a Vice President in Microsoft’s cloud and enterprise group. “In order to drive impact, businesses need to be able to modify and innovate on a range of products, not just in silos.”
Dynamics 365 will also feature Power BI and Cortana Intelligence, two other services aimed at predicting a number of functions for businesses; including when customers require specific products. The new system will also connect to Office 365, Microsoft’s web-based email, spread sheet, word-processing and presentation app.
