MSDW Podcast: Roohi Shaikh, Microsoft MVP & co-founder of Inogic

November 3 2021

This episode is sponsored by Inogic. 

Microsoft MVP and Inogic co-founder Roohi Shaikh joins the podcast to discuss geoanalytics, solution development, product management, and the needs of the Dynamics 365 CRM community.

Inogic's product lineup includes its flagship, Maplytics, but it also includes over a dozen other apps, many of which cover relatively simple use cases that add efficiency and boost productivity. But as she exlains, simple does not always mean easy. Apps that boost productivity can help everyone from the small to very large Dynamics customers. We also talk about how Azure services now play a part in R&D and what Microsoft customers think about using the public cloud.
