The Business Applications Spring ’18 release delivers significant investments designed to help you transform your business. These new services and capabilities are available starting in April 2018. (These release notes describe functionality that may not have been released yet. Delivery timelines and projected functionality may change or may not ship (see Microsoft policy).

We’ve made tremendous progress:

  • Unifying our business applications across marketing, sales, service, operations, finance, talent, and retail into a comprehensive family of capabilities that spans the entire business process landscape—so you can solve specific business problems with applications that work seamlessly together.

  • Ensuring you gain synergistic benefit from your other Microsoft investments by enriching Dynamics 365 with deeper integrations with Microsoft Outlook, Teams, SharePoint, Stream, Azure, and LinkedIn. We’ve enhanced Dynamics 365 with data and signal from Office 365 and Bing. We’ve also made Dynamics 365 more intelligent by employing decades of AI work pioneered by Microsoft Research.

  • Advancing the platform beneath Dynamics 365—the same platform beneath Office 365—to combine Power BI, PowerApps, Microsoft Flow, Microsoft Stream, the Common Data Service for Apps, and Power BI datapools into an unmatched palette of tools to extend, customize, and integrate Dynamics 365 and Office 365 into your environment. These experiences are powered by insights and intelligence from data across hundreds of business systems with built‑in connectivity to the platform, and with rich audio‑visual media that tightly integrates into the business applications people use daily.

We’ve done this work to help you—our partners, customers, and users—drive the digital transformation of your business on your terms.

We’re looking forward to engaging with you as you put these new services and capabilities to work, and we’re eager to hear your feedback as you dig into the Spring ’18 release.

Let us know your thoughts. Share your feedback on a community forum for Dynamics 365 or users of the "Power" suite of products (Power BI, PowerApps, Flow, and Stream). We’ll use your feedback to make improvements.
