Elements of Change #3 - SMB
CRM Online has changed. Dynamics 365 is now available and the branding of CRM has disappeared. The existing CRM Online products have merged into Dynamics 365 Enterprise Edition. However, Dynamics 365 Business Edition is around the corner. It will be different, not only from a function and feature perspective. It will speak to different audiences and will force partners to change their market focus, marketing and sales efforts and implementation methods. The session focus is to learn from Microsoft about discuss the impact on current business models, keeping in mind all the input from the session earlier in the day.
