Microsoft reiterates digital transformation message at directions north america

Directions North America, Microsoft’s annual Dynamics 365 Business Central partner event, kicked off Sunday, May 5 in sunny Las Vegas. While it may have been bright outside, inside it was all cloud. Toby Bowers, Senior Director of World Wide Business Applications and Industry at Microsoft, kicked off the event with Microsoft’s vision of the Digital Transformation – products and applications that will empower employees, engage customers, transform products, and optimize operations.

Digital Transformation - Systems of Intelligence

Since Dynamics 365 launched in 2016, thousands of businesses have transitioned to the cloud, taking advantage of predictable costs, consistent updates, anywhere, anytime usability, and business insights. Additionally, Dynamics 365 Business Central offers more functionality and apps built to power industry innovation through Machine Learning, Business Intelligence, Artificial Intelligence, and forward-thinking.

As more clients transition to Dynamics 365, Microsoft has continued to make updates to the product based on user response. An announcement was made that highlighted a few of the new features in Business Central:

  • Dynamically visible dimensions
