    Power Platform 24 Conference October 2020

    I have been building unique line of business applications for years using Dynamics CRM as the platform. It's a little known fact that the technology used for Dynamics CRM and configuration is the foundation for the Common Data Service and model-driven Power Apps. The benefit today? You don't need get expensive Dynamics 365 licenses if your organization doesn't need them, but you can get all the same features and functionalities of the core Dynamics CRM app by building model-driven Power Apps on the Common Data Service (for a fraction of Dynamics 365 licensing costs). Added benefit is being able to extend those apps using Power Automate, Canvas-apps and other Power Platform technologies. Attend this session to learn how you can implement a "CRM" that fits your organization's needs!
