Recently, Microsoft announced that it is launching a new duo of artificial intelligence and CRM: called Dynamic 365. Dynamic 365 promises to deliver powerful business software by blending CRM with enterprise resource planning (ERP). Dynamics 365 is a direct competition to Salesforce and Oracle. There are a couple of features that are designed with sales and service personnel in mind.

TrendMicro is so cool!

Now it feels like déjà vu. Trend Micro is going big in the Office 365 community this year. Read More Here!
