Enterprise applications delivered to corporate clients via the cloud may be extremely powerful, thanks to the near-infinite compute resources such programs can deploy. But much of the time they are not necessarily the easiest programs for staff members to use. Two new platforms from Microsoft aim to change that by making a company’s cloud-delivered apps more user friendly.
Dubbed Microsoft Dynamics 365 and Microsoft AppSource, the platforms are set to launch this fall with the goal of building on the company?EU?s existing CRM (customer relationship management) and ERP (enterprise resource planning) cloud solutions to make it easier for business customers to discover software-as-a-service (SaaS) apps offered by Microsoft and its partners.
?EU?Technology is transforming our personal lives with apps and services that are simple and intuitive, and deliver helpful assistance to improve our lives,?EU?

Some even make you pay extra for capabilities like visualization, workflow automation and predictive insights.?EU?
Microsoft Dynamics 365 will combine the company?EU?s existing CRM and ERP cloud solutions into a single cloud service with multiple purpose-built apps designed to manage specific business functions such as financials, field service, sales, operations, marketing, project service automation, and customer service.
Dynamics 365 apps have modular designs, allowing customers to deploy each app independently as it is needed, and pay for each one separately. Additionally, all of the apps are designed to integrate with each other, so customers should be able to scale up their services with additional capabilities such as built-in insights, predictive intelligence, and workflow optimization as needed.
Both Microsoft?EU?s Power BI and Cortana Intelligence capabilities will be natively embedded…
