Microsoft has announced the official launch day of Dynamics 365. The cloud-based CRM and ERP SaaS platform will be available on Tuesday, Oct. 11. The company took to its blog to make the announcement. Microsoft also says Executive Vice President Scott Guthrie will give a demo of the features on the launch date.
The demonstration will be available as an online event. Live examples of the service in action will be accompanied by presentations on how Dynamics 365 can change a business digitally.
Dynamics 365 was first announced back in July, alongside the launch of the enterprise-focused AppSource marketplace. The service will provide business customers with dedicated applications with Cortana Intelligence and Power BI integration.
Dynamics 365 Features
The new service will feature purpose-built applications that will be designed to provide solutions for specific business functions. Microsoft announced Dynamics 365 today and said the apps will center on Sales, Field Service, Marketing, Financials, Project Service Automation, and Customer Service.
Customers will be able to access applications independently and will only pay for what they use. The platform integrates with Office 365, Cortana Intelligence, and Power BI. The platform works with predictive intelligence, workflow optimization, and built-in insights.
Microsoft describes the service:
“Microsoft Dynamics 365 will bring together the best of our CRM and ERP cloud offerings into one cloud service with specific, purpose built, apps for each of your key business processes – like Finance, Sales, Customer Service, etc.
Dynamics 365 apps will also provide you with a modern and familiar experience with built in insights, intelligence and workflow. To ensure interoperability and extensibility they also use a common data model and consistent application platform.”
