Microsoft Urges ISVs Toward AppSource, Noting Range of Current and Future Opportunities

Microsoft AppSource 

Yes, Microsoft AppSource is a new directory for finding add-on solutions for Microsoft software, including Dynamics ERP and CRM. But Microsoft officials have also offered a note of caution this week at WPC 2016: Don't underestimate the new platform's possibilities.

Microsoft made its case for the new directory in a range of sessions at WPC this week.

At Tuesday's morning keynote session, Microsoft executive vice president Scott Guthrie and corporate vice president James Phillips noted that AppSource can help vendors offer cloud-based apps in conjunction with Dynamics 365, Office 365, and Azure.

Listing an app on AppSource

Best approach seems to be to start with the "List an app" link at the top of the AppSource site. Then work through the details from there.
