Published: 26 April 2017

Wouldn’t work-life be much easier if it was possible to access all of your business applications in one place, on any device, anytime, anywhere in the world? Well now, Microsoft have made that possibility a reality… introducing Microsoft Dynamics 365!

So you’re probably wondering, what is Dynamics 365? What about Office 365? How do they work together? Where do they fit into the Microsoft stack?

Let us explain…

Office 365 Evolution

There’s no doubt that Office’s word processing, spreadsheet, presentation and database tools have played a vital role in the evolution of IT. But we’re now in the midst of Industry Revolution 4.0, where business software and automation is transforming businesses at light-year speed.

Office 365 Has Changed The Game

Building on the traditional Office stack that we know and love, Office 365 introduced a wealth of applications that have transformed the way we do business, since its launch in 2011. Applications like Power BI, Planner and SharePoint are enabling businesses to collaborate better, be more productive and make smarter business decisions based on data driven insights. Which is perhaps why Office 365 adoption rates in SME’s have more than doubled in recent years.

There’s no doubt about it, Office 365 has definitely been a huge game-changer for businesses. But that’s not all… Microsoft have understood the fallbacks of traditional business software, and have developed their new offering, Dynamics 365, to include all business functions. So whether its sales, marketing, customer service or finance you need, they’re now available under one roof, as and when you need them. Not to mention, Dynamics 365 also integrates seamlessly with Office 365.
