Benefits of Dynamics 365
 By combining Dynamics 365 CRM and ERP with Microsoft's productivity
applications, users get a connected view of data intelligence on customer
records, transactions, behaviors and preferences, along with information
about orders, inventory and shipping, and in addition to predictive insight
tools for decision-makers.
 The biggest benefit of Dynamics 365 is tight integration with other
Microsoft business applications. For companies that rely heavily on Office
365 and Outlook, or that run operations on Azure, Dynamics 365 provides
more beneficial integration with sister products than most CRM systems,
which rely on third-party plug-ins. Microsoft is also growing its stable of
third-party applications to pair with Dynamics 365 through the AppSource
store.
 Additional Dynamics 365 benefits include a common UI throughout
Microsoft's suite of business applications, enabling easier training and
improved efficiency.
Dynamics 365 build
Microsoft's Power BI and Cortana Intelligence tools is natively embedded
for predictive capabilities. With Cortana Intelligence, for instance, sales
reps will be able to predict which products and services a customer will
need next, thereby helping to focus their cross-selling efforts.

Dynamics 365 is also tightly integrated with Office 365. Apps use a common
data model that's shared with Office 365, and they'll also come with
connectors that let you integrate with applications and services from
Microsoft and its partners, including custom APIs and on-premises systems.

Dynamics 365 will be a seamless transition for the customers using


Dynamics CRM or Dynamics AX online. So basically 365 will take over CRM
and AX applications.
