Get into the minds of the Microsoft Executive team, get their thoughts on the future of Microsoft Dynamics and understand how those within Microsoft deal with financial issues.
At Convergence 2012 we've introduced a vision for modern business applications, utilizing the Metro style design standard. We're exploring these design advances as we continue to execute on our vision to help our customers become Dynamic Businesses. In this blog post we want to provide an overview of the design concepts showcased in the concept application.
Within Microsoft we've always focused on helping our business applications customers become more productive. With the Metro style design standard, we will be able to provide an 'immersive' experience for business applications—one in which the navigational elements of the operating system take a back seat to what the application can do, literally 'immersing' users in the application.
Examples of specific design elements we've implemented include:
Traditional business applications have focused on what has happened in the past and serve mainly as a system-of-record. Microsoft Dynamics already changes that model in our applications today, for example embedded, declarative workflow brings an understanding of the underlying business process directly into the application itself thereby helping guide our customers through their work. Together with embedded business intelligence that transforms the data captured in the system into insight that empowers better decisions, the system becomes a more active, forward looking partner for the people that drive a business. In our concept application, you can see its pro-active nature in how you are able to automatically allocate the right resources to a project, those resources are not only available, but have the required skills and a proven track record of success with this specific customer.
This is just the beginning… Microsoft Dynamics will continue to evolve with technologies like embed constraint optimization and machine learning to deliver even more advanced proactive and forward-looking capability to power your Dynamic Business.
Contextual information increases the relevance of data provided by the system. Some specific examples:
Hope this gets you excited about the possibilities. We certainly are. Look for these elements trickling down into our individual Microsoft Dynamics business applications. And let us hear from you—what do you think of where we are going in Microsoft Dynamics?
I think the integration between Dynamics and Windows 8 is great. It was what I was hoping to see. Heck, I might even replace my Android phone so I can see GP data on my phone.
