With the Spring 2017 release of Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations, Microsoft has furthered its strategy to embed business intelligence where employees need it most – directly within the context of their business processes. With the new embedded analytical workspaces, users no longer have to leave their ERP system to access key reports and analytics – they can access these details right inside the system! This not only drives productivity, but empowers employees to make faster decisions based on real-time, contextual information.
While the adoption of cloud-based ERP and CRM solutions has gained momentum faster than most people expected, there are still some organizations that prefer to host mission-critical ERP systems in their local on-premise data centers, or that for regulatory, compliance or data privacy reasons, don’t have the option of utilizing an ERP service in the cloud.
As a Microsoft Dynamics 365 consultancy focused in the professional services industries, our clients view managing their talent and human capital as mission critical. Not only are a services organization’s talent and intellectual capital a primary source of competitive advantage, but the successful deployment of this talent to deliver client services can directly impact an organization’s bottom line and the ability to grow in an efficient manner.
SAGlobal is very excited to announce that we have successfully brought our client, Chemonics, live on the new Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Talent application! This successful implementation was profiled by Chemonics Executive Vice President, Eric Reading, at the recent Microsoft Business Forward event in New York City, headlined by Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella.

The Fall 2016 release of Dynamics 365 for PSA
marks the second major release of the project service automation solution from Microsoft. Microsoft continues to aggressively invest in PSA as a key part of their unified services vision within Dynamics 365
. The Fall 2016 release included a number of enhancements, and we wanted to share just a few of our favorite new features with you.
With the introduction in Q1 2016 of the new Microsoft Dynamics AX, known now as Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations
, Microsoft’s flagship ERP system was re-built on and for the Microsoft Azure cloud platform. This move to the cloud has brought many questions from existing on-premise clients and prospective new clients that are interested in maintaining an on-premise deployment of the application. Microsoft previously committed to delivering an on-premise option by the end of calendar year 2017, but hadn’t provided a lot of details around how they would deliver this model. These details are now becoming a little clearer, and will be discussed in this blog.
