While Microsoft is tremendously progressing to unify the Business Applications like marketing, sales, service, operations, finance, talent and retail offerings, they continually work more tightly to integrate Dynamics 365 with Microsoft Teams, SharePoint, LinkedIn, Stream, Azure, Azure IoT Central, and Outlook.
