With AppSource and Dynamics 365, Microsoft Reveals The Rest of Its Future Vision for Cloud Business Apps

Microsoft has announced that it will be launching a cloud service for business apps called Dynamics 365. It will feature capabilities of Dynamics CRM, AX, and Project Madeira, will integrate with and take pricing and packaging cues from Office 365, and will provide business users with smaller units of business capaiblities based no process and role requirements.

Though the introduction of a new Dynamics cloud offering - and the new Microsoft AppSource app store to support it - will get people talking in the AX, GP, NAV, and CRM ecosystem, the move does not appear to be the kind of bombshell that the more conspiratorial people in the community may have enivisioned for the future of Microsoft's business apps.

A lighter shade of Green

I thought Project Green was dead? Apparently they buried the pupa in the ground in Redmond hoping for the day it would spring forth and devour Fargo and its customer base with monthly subscription bills.

Heck of a model Microsoft is TRYING to build and call popular. It is a tall order to move all companies to a perpetual subscription model instead of having them pay Microsoft an amount every few years. But Microsoft needs the money to hire more yes men who only agree with the new boss from Cloud-land.

The Cloud must be protected! All hail Azure!
