If AXMentor’s inaugural Evolve event in early March served to “take a temperature” of Dynamics 365’s early health, it appears strong.
With customers (and partners) still trying to understand the future of their Dynamics AX and Dynamics CRM investments, AXMentor planned to answer their questions.
The company's product manager Deborah Wittich and marketing & sales manager Amir Khoshnayati join us to recap of the event, which focused on and helping companies understand the future of their Dynamics AX and Dynamics CRM investments; and charting their transition paths to Dynamics 365. Our guests describe an air of both caution and enthusiasm.
- How customers can extend the lifecycle of what they have built out in upgrading to the latest version of Dynamics 365.
- Digital transformation – what does it mean to customers in the purchasing cycle? In productivity? Overall business outcomes?
- How as Wittich describes customers are beginning to grasp digital transformation with “some actual lightbulbs going off and eyes lighting up.”
- Local data: How the on-prem and hybrid model is a sigh of relief to at least some customers, who take it as a sign that “Microsoft is listening.”
- How the manufacturing vertical is especially vocal in its need for high-volume, high-availability performance of Dynamics 365 (and Microsoft’s answer to that demand).
- How the Dynamics 365 brand is catching on – fueled in part by the familiarity of Office 365.
- A surprising interest in Power Apps, and how in an impromptu session AXMentor created a working mobile app in under 10 minutes.
