Azure and Dynamics 365 allow organizations to build flexible, agile business solutions in the cloud or on-premises. Dynamics provides companies with CRM and ERP solutions to help with business functions like sales, customer service, and finance.
Azure offers companies a stable cloud environment to store data and host business applications. Combining Dynamics 365 and Azure gives small and mid-sized companies (SMBs) everything they need to compete with larger industry competitors.
Microsoft Dynamics 365 is built on top of Azure, making integrations between the two solutions a seamless process. Every Microsoft Dynamics 365 purchase comes with a free Active Directory (Azure AD) subscription to manage user identities and control access to Dynamics 365 applications.
With Azure AD Dynamics 365, you can provide specific access to data for individual apps like mail, contacts, calendars, and folders. You can also set up connections to Power Apps from mobile devices.
Protect data passing through your Dynamics 365 solutions like Business Central to protect data and ensure you adhere to your organization’s regulatory framework. Information stored in Azure gets stored in multiple copies across various geographical zones. That redundancy keeps your storage account available in case of a natural disaster or other failures.
Azure also enhances Dynamic 365 ability to enforce a company’s personal data requirements along with General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Organizations can also use Azure AD reports to track suspicious activity using any Dynamics 365 solutions.
Integrating Azure and Dynamics 365 with your business intelligence (BI) solutions let you pass information throughout the organization. Users gain access to data when needed, transforming how they leverage data. Having trustworthy information at your fingertips in real-time empowers your workforce to make more informed business decisions.
Your ability to set up a consistent, user-friendly ERP with Dynamics 365 and Azure helps you accelerate the speed of business. Employees gain the ability to work together on projects to accomplish the goals set out by the organization.
Because Azure and Dynamics 365 are subscription-based, you can decide which apps you purchase or scale up your Azure storage limits. That flexibility is key to enabling your organization to scale as you acquire new business or introduce new projects.

The combination of Dynamics 365 business applications and the support of Azure helps companies plan out their future business needs. Use Microsoft Dynamics 365 Azure dashboards to get a holistic view of everything happening within your organization. Your IT department can expand as they need to handle the growing demands of a company.
An Azure webhook is an HTTP pattern used to connect with Web APIs and other services. You can set up a Dynamics 365 Webhook Azure function to secure third-party API endpoints with authentication headers or parameter keys within query strings.
Azure functions are serverless solutions that let developers use code they’re comfortable with versus having to learn an entirely new language to build Dynamics 365 apps. The ability to refactor code means companies don’t have to hire new developers or other consultants if their business needs change. You can deploy Dynamics 365 Azure Webhook functions through existing deployment models in your Visual Studio instance.
Developers wishing to preserve legacy code can lift it into an Azure function to use without having to redefine existing business requirements. Azure functions also let you turn legacy integrations into an API with event-driven RESTful endpoints. You can scale your Azure functions based on business needs or improve the performance of your Dynamics 365 applications.
Future-facing organizations can leverage Azure Functions to set up microservices with Dynamics 365. For example, you can set up individual functions to handle qualified leads and disqualified leads for your sales contacts.
Integrating your Dynamics 365 CRM or ERP with Azure DevOps helps your support teams deal with escalated cases and resolve work items faster. Azure DevOps’ continuous delivery and continuous integration (CI/CD) pipelines make it easier for development teams to handle new feature requests and bug fixes to your Dynamics 365 production environment.
You can build, test, deploy, and manage your Dynamics 365 applications using Microsoft Azure DevOps. Use Azure boards for Kanban or scrum to discuss, track, and plan various projects through every stage of the development lifecycle. Teams can also keep up with backlogs and use analytics to maintain oversight of the status of a project.
