As always on the Edge, we are happy to call out valuable content from others – especially when that content comes from sources that are close to home.

In this case, a great article quoting my fellow Dynamics colleague Anthony Cross on how organizations that deploy the latest desktop productivity software alongside their Microsoft Dynamics business solutions can realize considerable productivity gains and greater return on their software investments.

A familiar user interface, more pervasive access to - and more powerful analysis of - relevant and timely business data, enhanced collaboration, and increased responsiveness are all part of the complex equation that leads to increased productivity.

An equation that we simple folk can just think of as Microsoft Dynamics + Office 2010 + SharePoint 2010 = The Future of Productivity.

To Illustrate the validity of this equation, the article includes an impressive case story with Germany-based fire-safety consulting services firm hhpberlin, that increased revenue while reducing the average number of hours worked per employee using their Microsoft Dynamics Solution, Office 2010 and SharePoint Server 2010.

You can read the full article, and get a taste of the future of productivity, on the Microsoft News Center here.

QED … as my old mathematics teacher would say.
