Common data model for Dynamics 365 makes integration easier

As many know, Microsoft has many applications, which covers a wide range of business needs, and some of these business applications have a context in an integration or an opportunity to be integrated. Depending on how your business needs for applications and application link appears, the path to the target may be very different and sometimes a little cumbersome and expensive.

Microsoft has therefore introduced Dynamics 365, which is the next generation of business applications that can be rented and subscribed in the cloud (Microsoft Online services-Cloud). With Dynamics 365 Microsoft will make it easier for customers to apply the best from the structured world (ERP) with financial management, inventory control, sales, procurement, etc. and the more unstructured part with phone calls, e-mails, documents, sales-marketing-and meeting activities.

The new platform – Dynamics 365 – makes use of 3 elements: Microsoft PowerApps, Microsoft Flow and Microsoft Common Model, which also make up much of the foundation of the Office 365, PowerBI and Azureservices.

Microsoft PowerApps

PowerApps makes tools available, so that the client or the client's partner can build solutions without writing code, and you can easily link a solution to a data source and get a solution quickly in use.

Microsoft Flow

With Microsoft Flow processes can easily be set up between a wide range of applications, for example, so that some users will be advised by certain actions, e.g. changes in systems, calls from customers etc. and others have decided to "subscribe" on selected data continuously, without themselves being active and go in and retrieve data. Rights and security structures are of course in place. As a starting point, there are a number of links to applications such as Dynamics CRM/NAV/AX, Sharepoint, Facebook etc.

Microsoft Common Data Model

In all business applications is master data important, but getting access to the right data and "recycle" them is not always easy. With the use of Common Data Model, which is a cloud-based database, it makes the process easier to access an application data. This makes the use and reuse of data more simple for the customers, and we can thereby ensure that data are consistent and data will be recycled automatically, creating an efficiency-and to minimize error and uncertainty by manual entries and removals from application to application.
