Integrating Dynamics 365 with Azure


Microsoft Dynamics 365 has already integrated Microsoft Azure natively to help power many of its built-in capabilities such as search and intelligence. In this course, we focus on custom cloud integrations that you can build that are unique to your own project integration needs. These integrations can help solve challenges such as offloading processing from Dynamics 365, orchestrating business processes with Logic Apps, adding custom intelligence using Azure Machine Learning, and data integration with the Common Data Service. You will also learn how to export data to Azure SQL to solve extended data reporting and data warehousing requirements
