Turning business process into business advantage for organizations everywhere
Microsoft is taking the first step to bring customers new, modern, enterprise-ready intelligent business apps with the introduction of Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central and Microsoft AppSource.
Technology is transforming our personal lives with apps and services that are simple and intuitive, and deliver helpful assistance to improve our lives.
In contrast the apps and services we use to drive business process are often difficult to use, try and deploy. Some even make you pay extra for capabilities like visualization, workflow automation and predictive insights.
Dynamics 365 apps are designed so they can be easily and independently deployed. That means you can start small and pay only for what you need. Yet they work together seamlessly so, as your business demands, you can grow into additional capabilities with ease. They include built-in insights, predictive intelligence and workflow optimization, all of which will be delivered through simple, easy-to-use, mobile experiences with offline capabilities.
Deep integration between Dynamics 365 and Office 365 connects the structured workflow of business apps with the unstructured work of collaboration and productivity.
• For example, a sales person receives an email, and can respond directly in Office with a quote that is created based on information from both Finance and Sales apps, stored back to the right app, with right pricing, discounting, etc. All without the user having to leave Outlook.
Power BI and Cortana Intelligence is natively embedded to help customers achieve their business goals with predictive insights, prescriptive advice and actionable next steps.
• For example, Cortana Intelligence will enable cross-sell recommendations to help sales reps predict which products and services a customer will need.
Adapt and innovate in real-time with a common data model and extensible business application platform. Dynamics 365 apps will:
Use a common data model, shared with Office 365, to simplify data management and integration across apps and business processes.
• Offer tech-savvy business customers/analysts, aka “citizen developers,” (using PowerApps, Power BI and Microsoft Flow) and professional developers (using Azure platforms services) a consistent business platform they can use to compose new apps and easily extend and modify existing ones.
• Come with connectors that let you integrate with applications and services from Microsoft and our partners – including custom APIs and on-premises systems.
