Microsoft adds two more Dynamics 365 AI apps to its roadmap

In the run-up to next week's Ignite and Envision conferences, it's also extending its business applications with Mixed Reality (MR) capabilities on HoloLens.

The new Dynamics 365 AI applications include Dynamics 365 AI for Sales, Dynamics 365 AI for Customer Service and Dynamics 365 AI for Market Insights. First off, there is Dynamics 365 AI for Sales, created to give insights into sales pipelines.

And Dynamics 365 AI for Customer Service allows individual agents and managers to understand and predict customer service problems before they become a real issue.

Dynamics 365 AI for Market Insights. The new application can improve customer relationships with actionable web and social insights to help marketers engage in relevant conversations and respond faster to trends.

The Mixed Reality announcements bring HoloLens - Microsoft's virtual reality headset - into the industrial environment, where it will have a role in field service, inspection and site surveys.

Citing oil company Chevron Corp's use of the applications, Microsoft said they help to remotely collaborate with and assist firstline workers and remote experts, reducing travel time.

Previously Chevron was required to fly in an inspector from Houston to a facility in Singapore once a month to inspect equipment.

Dynamics 365 Layout. This allows wearers to plan the position of equipment or other assets in a specific location by superimposing digital images. Officials reiterated today that Microsoft will start rolling out its October 2018 Dynamics 365 and Power platform deliverables generally on October 1.

In an interview, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella told Forbes that AI-driven and mixed reality-driven applications on Dynamics could "completely change the game" for the software category. Before the release of its first apps, Microsoft relied on third-party developers to build their own applications and workflows.

Many people, when they talked about CRM or ERP of old, they referred to them as systems of oppression. They already have customers, they already have data. Mixed reality, Gownder argues, has already proven its viability for businesses, but needs "this kind of continuous software innovation to truly succeed".

Microsoft and Salesforce are attacking each other again. She singled out Salesforce as a CRM competitor in her comments. Salesforce partners with IBM Watson to be able to deliver on this.
