The Benefits of the Intelligent Cloud for Microsoft Dynamics SL

Learn how to take your financial data in Dynamics SL and put it into Microsoft’s cloud-based ERP, Dynamics 365 Business Central!

Why? To have read-only data on a user-friendly, web-based interface so anyone in your company (or customers) can have mobile access to that data anywhere and on any device. More robust than Web Apps, the Intelligent Cloud is a way to gain some of the benefits of a truly cloud-based system within your on-premise system, e.g. easy-to-access analytics and reporting.

In this presentation, Jeff Suwyn shares what the Intelligent Cloud is (sometimes called the Intelligent Edge), what the benefits are, how it will be upgraded with new features in time, and how to setup you connection between Dynamics SL and Dynamics 365 Business Central to use the Intelligent Cloud.

Major Release of Dynamics SL Expected in First Half of 2018

Jeff Suwyn of Microsoft revealed the latest Dynamics SL roadmap during an October 3, 2017 webinar.

The next major release of Microsoft Dynamics SL will debut next year, Microsoft announced. The much-anticipated updated version is expected sometime in the first half of 2018.

Microsoft initially planned to announce the news at the annual Dynamics SL User Group (DSLUG) Fall Conference last month, but the conference was postponed until next spring due to hurricane threats.

Rather than wait until the rescheduled April 2018 conference to announce the news, Microsoft Dynamics SL Product and Marketing Manager Jeff Suwyn held a webinar version of his planned General Session. During the Oct. 3 webinar, he announced the latest version of SL and revealed a new product roadmap.

Few details are available so far regarding Dynamics SL 2018, but we do know that the product will feature the latest technology related to Power BI, Power Apps and Flow. We can also expect improvements to Web Apps and, as always, specific features requested by users.
