Business solutions are often associated with extensive and rigid software suites that are laborious to implement, require considerable maintenance and are so complex that only absolute specialists can use them. In the digital age, user-friendly information technologies have not only taken over everyday life, but have also long since reached the business world.
An important driving force of this development is the cloud, which opens up numerous possibilities for companies and has, at the same time, heralded a new era in the field of business solutions. Microsoft Dynamics 365 provides you with a new cloud-based business solution that combines the classic ERP and CRM functions with modern Business Intelligence functionalities, Office 365 integration and optional applications for specific business and industry requirements.
Dynamics 365 will be made available in two basic versions for small- to medium-sized businesses and for large businesses. With the software-as-a-service model (SaaS), Dynamics 365 enables fast, economical and flexible ERP deployment based on the latest Microsoft technology.
Dynamics 365 carries Microsoft's business strategy consistently forward with a focus on modern business applications that provide intelligent support for work processes, simplify usage and are optimised for mobile application scenarios. The technological foundation is formed by Microsoft's modern cloud platform Azure. On this basis, Dynamics 365 provides the central platform for all digital business processes, including the classic ERP and CRM functionalities that form the core functions, from finance to field service, sales, operations, marketing, project management and customer service.
Integrated into the package with Microsoft Power BI, Cortana Intelligence and Azure IoT is a wide range of possibilities for analysing current business and product data. The seamless connection with Office 365 makes it easy for you to continue working on Office documents directly in the ERP environment, thereby supporting your mobile business processes and sales activities. Furthermore, Dynamics 365 provides connectors for smooth data exchange with existing business applications.
The scope of functions available with Dynamics 365 can be expanded with separate business apps to meet individual and industry-specific needs. With the "AppSource" online marketplace, Microsoft provides a central access point from which you can obtain a multitude of apps from Microsoft and partners. The Dynamics 365 apps are designed so that they are fast and can be used independently of each other. This means, for example, that you can start small with the solution, and license only what you really use. Simply add new functions as you need them — the cloud infrastructure automatically integrates the services.
Dynamics 365 is made available in two basic versions: The Business Edition is designed for companies with ten to 300 users and is the only end-to-end business solution to encompass the core modules for finances, sales and marketing. The Enterprise Edition is optimised for larger companies and includes the latest cloud version of Microsoft Dynamics AX (formerly Axapta), providing additional functionalities for field service, customer service and process automation. As well as the usual option of obtaining individual modules or functionalities, both versions also give you the ability to license role-specific function areas. This means it is possible to choose the license model that is most cost-effective and best fits your requirements in each case.
With flexible deployment and application scenarios, the new Microsoft Cloud product range can benefit companies of all sizes and sectors. In Dynamics 365, Microsoft has put together ERP packages that provide cutting-edge and perfectly customised software technology that is easy to implement. Furthermore, Dynamics 365 highlights the path down which ERP systems of the future are heading: away from rigid, monolithic business suites towards flexible, intelligent tools that actively support employees and open up brilliant new business opportunities for companies.
