How I.T. can create value exceeding their expense – Steve Mordue

In a recent post, I referenced this post that I wrote 6 years ago. I thought I would go back and record it, unedited. Let me know if you agree that it sadly still applies to many companies even today. Originally published – May 22, 2012   Let’s face it, I.T. is a big expense. As a former CEO of several organizations, I can tell you looking at the I.T. expense is a head shaker…. Continue Reading Steve Mordue MVP’s Article...

The Changing Role of the Microsoft Business Applications Partner – Steve Mordue

Six years ago, I wrote a post that was directed at IT Directors/Managers, about the need for them to re-imagine their roles in the face of the then rapidly growing cloud thing. Today, the role that needs to be re-imagined is that of Microsoft Business Applications Partner. Between Microsoft and the Citizen Developer, the space previously occupied by the Partner is getting narrower. You… Continue Reading Steve Mordue MVP’s...

Dynamics 365 for Marketing – Steve chats with Thomas – Steve Mordue

So I have actually been having a little fun with the “Steve Reads his Post Podcast”, and decided to see if I might take it further. But I didn’t want it to be “just another podcast”. I thought it might be fun to just call somebody out-of-the-blue with the record button on, and see where it goes. It could be a disaster! You tell me. For my first of this type of podcast, I… Continue Reading Steve Mordue MVP’s Article on...

Dynamics Developers – Time to Get your Head out of your Ass – Steve Mordue

As I was writing my last post on Re-Thinking, I got an email from some off-shore developer, offering to assist us with any “Dynamics CRM Online” projects we may have. Based on this pretty big clue, I put on my pompous know-it-all hat, and blasted him for offering his ancient skills to a cutting edge partner. His apologetic reply included, “there is just so much to get up-to-speed… Continue Reading Steve Mordue MVP’s...

Business Applications – It’s Time to Re-Think Things – Steve Mordue

Recently, I found myself looking in the Google Play Store for a mobile app to solve some issue. I found several options that were close, but none met my need perfectly. My choices were: a) continue to live with an unmet need, b) Use one of the apps that was close… but not really, or c) Hire a mobile app developer and build one, which would be insane. The challenges for Business… Continue Reading Steve Mordue MVP’s Article...

Dynamics 365 for Marketing – The Giant Stands Back Up – Steve Mordue

Dynamics 365 for Marketing – The Giant Stands Back Up Back in April, I wrote a post called “Dynamics 365 for Marketing – A Giant Tripped by a Grain of Sand” about Microsoft’s new Dynamics 365 for Marketing Application. It was not a favorable post. Regardless, Microsoft added us to a very small Pilot program for the product in a, “Keep the troublemakers close” strategy. A… Continue Reading Steve Mordue MVP’s Article on...

Dynamics 365 – Unpacking a recent post – Steve Mordue

As an experiment, back in February, I thought I would try using the LinkedIn “Create an Article” feature, to see how it compared to just posting to LinkedIn from my own blog. I can confidently report that the test was a huge failure. Anyone thinking of using LinkedIn’s “Create an Article” feature… don’t, it gets almost no traffic at all. But I did like the Article, and… Continue Reading Steve Mordue MVP’s Article on their...

Microsoft Business Applications – Freelancers vs. Partners – Steve Mordue

Sometimes people ask me where I come up with post ideas, here’s one way. I saw a LinkedIn post today from a recruiter, suggesting the use of “freelancers” for Dynamics 365, and presumably other Microsoft Business Applications. While freelancers may have a place in the process, there are some very good reasons, that you should seriously consider an actual Microsoft Business… Continue Reading Steve Mordue MVP’s Article on...

Dynamics 365 & PowerApps – Let’s build a Home

There seems to be quite a bit of confusion lately about Dynamics 365 and PowerApps, particularly now with Model-Driven PowerApps. Microsoft’s #FreightTrain, seems to have become a #BulletTrain of innovation, and sometimes things like “naming” and “explaining” lag behind. Let’s see if I can unpack this one. Warning, this is a long post, so you might want to listen to it… Continue Reading Steve Mordue MVP’s Article on their...

Dynamics 365 – The Battle for Simple

Mobile phone apps ruined everything. As a result of minimal processing power and small screen size, mobile app developers had little choice but to keep things basic. Given that mobile devices are used by everyone on the planet, including a lot of people who are not particularly smart, mobile apps also had to be “simple”. Now everybody thinks that everything should be as simple to… Continue Reading Steve Mordue MVP’s...

Dynamics 365 – CDS Changes Everything You Know

Dynamics 365 Customers and Partners have had a few changes pushed to them in recent years. Dynamics 365 was evolving at a pretty rapid pace since it hit the cloud, and when James Phillips took over the team, he took both of his feet and smashed the gas pedal. It’s like the USS Enterprise when it hits Warp Drive (I get a chill every time I see that). Trees in the Forest I have been… Continue Reading Steve Mordue MVP’s...

Dynamics 365 – The Transition to Unified Interface

There is no need to panic…yet. Procrastinators can freely ignore this post, for now. But if you are one of those people who hates scrambling at the last minute, then maybe this will interest you. Waves Microsoft likes to call the significant updates for Dynamics 365 “Waves”. They have also announced that there will be two major Waves each year, with minor “ripples” ongoing….
