2016 - Microsoft to merge CRM and ERP into integrated cloud platform Dynamics 365 to take on NetSuite
Microsoft announced its intention to combine the Dynamics CRM and ERP products into an integrated platform Dynamics 365 on top of which it is hoping third parties will build applications. It will also have deep connections with the cloud office suite, as well as to Cortana voice intelligence and PowerBI data visualization. In order to break down this rather elaborate system into more manageable chunks, the company is offering discrete applications on top of the platform including specific apps for finance, field service, sales, operations, marketing, project service automation and customer service. In addition, the company announced it’s launching the obligatory app store it’s calling Microsoft AppSource where developers can build and distribute their own apps, giving them a complete solution. The store will open with over 200 apps developed by early adopters.
