Bringing our October 2018 release to life at Ignite

As we continue our momentum and investments in Microsoft business applications, I’m excited to highlight some of the new capabilities in the October 2018 release of Dynamics 365 and the Power platform at Ignite 2018 today.

In my keynote at the event with Alysa Taylor, we are featuring two customers, Polaris Industries and Northwell Health. These customers exemplify companies that are using Dynamics 365 and the Power platform to fundamentally reimagine how they engage with their customers, use data to optimize their operations, empower their employees and transform their products.

You’ll see how Polaris is transforming their customer engagement processes and manufacturing operations through connected products, using Dynamics 365. And we’ll show some pretty amazing applications of mixed reality as we demonstrate HoloLens used in a field service engagement.

You’ll also hear from Northwell Health about how they are changing patient engagement with Dynamics 365, the Power platform, Office 365 and Azure. One of my favorite parts of their story is about a PowerApp which gives physicians and nurses visibility into each other’s teams – developed by one of their doctors! These business applications are helping teams at Northwell collaborate more effectively and provide even better patient care that is truly transformational.

And this all comes on top up some phenomenal feedback we received from the market following our introduction of new Dynamics 365 AI and Mixed Reality applications last week. And we are incredibly excited to build on all this momentum with the announcement from Satya today on the Open Data Initiative with Adobe and SAP, which represents the next step in our journey to deliver unmatched value to our customers.

In addition, the October release is packed with hundreds of new capabilities across all Dynamics 365 applications and the Power platform, including new connected field service capabilities and deeper integrations with Office 365, Teams, and LinkedIn. Get the full details of this release through our release notes.

I look forward to hearing your thoughts.
