New ways to differentiate your Business Applications practice

The cloud is at the heart of our modern business world. Given the rapid pace of digital transformation, businesses are finding it increasingly difficult to depend on on-premises solutions alone to meet their evolving needs. Following the widespread shift to remote work last year, it’s more critical than ever for organizations to be able to provide a seamless, consistent experience for their workforce and customers anywhere and at any time. Due to these pressures, adoption of Microsoft Azure has continued to increase rapidly, with 47 percent year-over-year growth reported last quarter alone.
As organizations move to the cloud, they’re empowered to adopt powerful, scalable applications to help manage their business. Microsoft Business Applications helps companies unleash their potential by breaking down data silos to connect customers, products, people, and operations. Solutions like Microsoft Dynamics 365 and Microsoft Power Platform allow your customers to improve their CRM and ERP approaches while up leveling analytics and business intelligence capabilities.
We’re committed to supporting you through this global transition to the cloud, which is why we’re continually working to give you access to the resources and technical capabilities you need to meet your customers’ evolving needs and provide you with opportunities to differentiate your business. With this in mind, I’m thrilled to share that we are offering a new competency option and two new advanced specializations that partners can earn to highlight their capabilities around Microsoft Business Applications. These new programs are specifically designed to support our partners who are serving the small and medium-sized business cloud applications market. You can review a list of all advanced specializations currently offered at DynamicsEdge-Training & Certification.
