A Brief Overview of the History of Dynamics 365
As we mentioned at the beginning of this article, Dynamics 365, formerly known as Microsoft Dynamics, made its debut in the market in 1981, just six years after the founding of Microsoft by two ambitious young entrepreneurs, Bill Gates, and Paul Allen.
Microsoft Dynamics was a suite of business applications that included both ERP functions for resource planning in businesses and functionalities for customer relationship management (CRM) . The company decided to promote these applications in the market by leveraging a large network of resellers who provided specialized services.
Over time, the suite evolved, adding new features, characteristics, and integrations with other Microsoft programs and services such as SharePoint, Yammer, Office 365, Azure, and Outlook.
Today, Microsoft Dynamics has been renamed Dynamics 365 and offers services for small, medium, and large enterprises, maintaining a 26.60%* share of the global market!
