In December 2016, when Microsoft's purchase of LinkedIn received final regulatory clearance, CEO Satya Nadella provided a short list of the top priorities for integrating the two company's product lines. Integration of Sales Navigator and Dynamics 365 was on that list, along with a number of other Office 365, training, Windows and other planned integrations. So far, I believe that the delivery of Relationship Sales is the only item from that list that's been delivered.
Microsoft is also working to add the ability to monitor LinkedIn organization pages owned by a user's company and engage on posts and comments from those pages. This functionality is "in development," according to Microsoft's Dynamics 365 roadmap page. It will be added to Dynamics 365 for Sales, Dynamics 365 for Customer Service (CRM), Dynamics 365 for Field Service, and Dynamics 365 for Project Service Automation.
In other Dynamics news from Inspire, Microsoft is enabling software developers to more easily build on top of Dynamics 365, Power BI, Power Apps and Microsoft Flow via a new program called ISV Cloud Embed.
Microsoft also told partners its on-premises versions of its various ERP suites would continue to be updated.
The next release of Dynamics NAV, codenamed "Tenerife," (which seemingly will arrive this calendar year) will add built-in Azure-based cognitive services, such as the ability to identify images, as well as an option to integrate the Office 365 Bookings app, MSDynamicsWorld said. Dynamics SL also will continue to get new updates through 2018, including Power BI Content Pack and Flow templates options.
