Dynamics 365 and its complimentary apps represent a $72 billion opportunity, according to Microsoft. The eXtreme365 Conference is wrapping up in Long Beach, Calif., where Microsoft has shed a lot of insight into the future of Dynamics 365, particularly for Dynamics Partners.

In addition to great learning experiences at eXtreme365, it was great to be in sunny Southern California just before the holidays. Once again, Stratos Cloud Alliance was joined by a “Princess Leia” impersonator and a programmable R2D2 replica. The conversation around Dynamics365 is getting more exciting with each event we go to. We spoke to many partners and customers who are curious and eager about the opportunity. If you missed it, here’s a video recording of Joe Corigliano and Ron Huddleston Keynotes from eXtreme365…
