Office 365 and Dynamics 365 Relationship Explained

Introduction:

This post explains as to how Office 365 and MS Dynamics 365 are related to each other.

Office 365 is a collection of online services designed to work together to provide enterprise-grade, anywhere access to email, file sharing, and online meetings. Office 365 includes features that allow administrators to add users, manage passwords and licenses, and much more. Microsoft Dynamics 365 (online) takes advantage of the Office 365 administration features to simplify user management. Dynamics 365 (online) users are created and managed in the Office 365 admin center.

A Dynamics 365 (online) subscription doesn’t include Office 365 applications such as Exchange Online or SharePoint Online. You can significantly enhance your company’s online, collaborative experience by integrating Office 365 applications with your Dynamics 365 (online) subscription. However, that requires a separate purchase.

They are meant to work together, but there are many options for subscribing to Office 365 so these are separate decisions.  Office 365 is a collection of online services designed to work together to provide enterprise-grade, anywhere access to email, file sharing, and online meetings.

Microsoft AppSource

Microsoft AppSource is the equivalent to whatever app library is available on your phone.  When you are looking to add functionality to your mobile device, you click on the Microsoft “Store”, Apple “App Store” or Android’s “Google Play”.  You search, learn, try and ultimate purchase or subscribe online.  AppSource is similar, but for users of Microsoft’s B2B solutions like Microsoft Dynamics 365.

Microsoft AppSource provides a modern discovery and provisioning system for these solutions. For customers, Microsoft AppSource is your destination to easily find and evaluate the apps from Microsoft and our partners that drive your business. For ISVs, Microsoft AppSource is your destination to market line-of-business (LoB) SaaS apps to business users. Drive discoverability and usage of your apps within an existing global network of business customers through co-marketing opportunities, lead generation and the support of Microsoft’s worldwide ecosystem and sales force. Harness Azure’s leading, secure and intelligent cloud services platform and tools to deliver differentiated apps to customers.

Depending on their business needs, AppSource allows users to access apps from Dynamics AX, Dynamics CRM, Dynamics NAV, Project Madeira, Power BI, Office 365, or Azure. Searching through all the apps offered by AppSource can be narrowed down by category, industry, or by Microsoft product. Microsoft sees AppSource as “a place to find new apps and better ways to get things done.” Microsoft hopes that AppSource will be a big hit for enterprise customers as Microsoft pushes more apps and services to the cloud using Azure.

Microsoft, AppSource

 

I hope above provides sufficient info on as to what is Office 365 and how does it relate to Dynamics 365 (online)? Do leave feedback/comments if you are using this combination? Thanks.
