At this year’s Worldwide Partner Conference in Toronto, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella said the company’s focus was firmly on digital transformation. But what does that actually mean?
In a business context, transformation is when your business makes fundamental changes to its working practices, processes and infrastructure, in order to create better outcomes. Those outcomes could be smoother operations, better-engaged customers, more-empowered employees or even new products and services. Digital transformation is simply using the latest technology to get there.
When we were at Microsoft’s Worldwide Partner Conference (WPC) earlier this month, one of the key announcement was the company’s new enterprise cloud service, Dynamics 365.
Satya Nadella, Microsoft’s CEO, spent a large chunk of his opening ‘vision keynote’ talking about the new service, so it’s clear that it forms a really vital part of their strategy for enterprise customers. But what is Dynamics 365, and what can it do for your business?
What is Dynamics 365?
Dynamics 365 combines Microsoft’s cloud tools for Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) and Customer Relationship Management (CRM) into one service, available on a simplified subscription model similar to Office 365.

CompanyNet was in Toronto last week for Microsoft’s annual Worldwide Partner Conference (WPC). Our Business Development Manager, Brian Douglas, and business tech journalist Bill Magee, met with other Microsoft partners, attended sessions on the future of Microsoft technologies, and reported back on what they found.
Satya Nadella delivered his Vision Keynote, recognising Microsoft’s achievements in the last year, and setting out priorities for the next 12 months and beyond. The focus was on digital transformation in the cloud through engaging customers, empowering staff, optimising operations and transforming products.
This is great news for CompanyNet, where we are already well-placed to help our customers undergo a digital transformation. Our enterprise-ready software like Kira Cloud intranet for SharePoint is already giving businesses an easy way to get on board with a cloud-based vision of the future.
Satya also talked about Dynamics 365 as a new Microsoft service that embodies that vision, particularly for reinventing business processes.
