It would be too easy to say it’s been a “dynamic” year for Dynamics 365 and the Intelligent Business Cloud.
It’s a fast pace of change we’re all facing, and the growth and diversity of the Dynamics product, leveraging the Intelligent Business Cloud, has led to tremendous challenges for partners, ISVs, tech staff and others in the industry ecosystem.
There’s little doubt business and industry clamors for new tools to give them an edge. Tools to expand their technological capabilities and streamline their digital transformation, saving them time, money and allowing them to make best use of the data they accumulate.
The challenge for partners is twofold:
For one, you need to understand the tools and capabilities in the Dynamics 365 toolbox you are most capable and comfortable selling, implementing and developing. The good news is with constant development on the platform, there so much more ease of use when linking what at one time were individual technological components within a business process.
A second challenge is to learn how to distill this information to the potential client. It’s about learning how to leverage the various components available to Dynamics 365 to create a unique, appropriate and seamless package for the customer. It’s about understanding what tools are provided by Microsoft to help you as a Partner optimize your own understanding and utilizing the resources available through Microsoft to provide the best possible resource and presentation.
That means there’s a lot to learn and a lot of training to be had.
That’s also why we encourage you to look at the deep-dive training being offered at eXtreme365 Long Beach, Nov. 6-9.
