We are happy to share the Spring ’18 release notes for Microsoft Business Applications. It summarizes all new and updated features shipping in the Spring wave, starting in April. You can download the release notes here.
In many ways, our Spring ’18 release marks the beginning of a new era for Microsoft Business Applications. It is a monumental release on many dimensions.
We’ve made tremendous progress unifying our business applications family, across our marketing, sales, service, operations, finance, talent and retail offerings; bringing together what we believe is the most comprehensive family of business applications spanning the entire business process landscape for our customers and partners.
We’ve also worked tirelessly to ensure Dynamics 365 users gain synergistic benefit from any other Microsoft investments they’ve made – integrating Dynamics 365 with Microsoft Outlook, Teams, SharePoint Online, Stream, Azure Functions, LinkedIn. We’ve enriched the Dynamics 365 experience with data and signal from Office 365 and Bing. And we’ve made it more intelligent by employing the decades of AI work pioneered by Microsoft Research.
The platform beneath Dynamics 365 (importantly, now also the platform beneath Office 365) has also been substantially advanced in this release – Power BI, PowerApps, Flow, Stream, the Common Data Service for Apps and the Common Data Service for Analytics combine to deliver what we believe is an unmatched palette of tools for extending, customizing and integrating Dynamics 365 and Office 365 into your environment – and for powering those experiences with insights and intelligence from data across hundreds of business systems for which we have built-in connectivity, and with rich audio-visual media that make experiences more natural.
All this work we’ve done for you – our partners, customers and users – to help you drive your digital transformation agenda.
You can find a summary of new features across all Dynamics 365 apps and the platform in the release notes here. We will update the release notes in the coming weeks as we add and enhance features and capabilities.
We’re excited to engage with you as you employ the new services, capabilities and features and eager to hear your feedback as you dig in the Spring ’18 release.
