While Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Operations remains cloud-centric, local model broadens reach

Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Operations is reaching its official one year anniversary this month, having formally launched in 137 markets in March 2016.

In that year of Azure-only deployments, Microsoft representatives say they have evolved and improved their cloud ERP capabilities in a range of areas including deployment, performance, and support, as well as in areas like analytics. Within the company, enthusiasm about the product's success so far is "unprecedented", says Microsoft senior product marketing manager Winston Hait, who spoke at an AXUG webcast today.
