Microsoft is firmly committed to bringing customers using on-premises business applications into the era of cloud-based productivity and artificial intelligence. The answer to this is Microsoft Dynamics 365 Copilot and AIM.
What is Dynamics 365 Copilot?
Dynamics 365 Copilot is a solution in the field of artificial intelligence, which is to support work with CRM and ERP systems from Microsoft. Copilot is a new tool from Microsoft based on artificial intelligence. This technology combines the power of large language models (LLM) with data retrieved from applications belonging to the Microsoft 365 family (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, Teams, etc.). This solution will take a form similar to a chat, which will act as an assistant during everyday work. You can read more about Copilot here.
The important information is that Copilot is an innovative solution that will only work in the cloud. Moreover, it seems that future innovative solutions will also be based on the cloud. Therefore, it is estimated that organizations limited to using on-premises applications will have difficulty competing with enterprises using the cloud and AI. Therefore, Microsoft clearly indicates that for many organizations, the migration of the most important business processes to the cloud is the recommended solution.
What is AIM?
With Copilot, Microsoft introduces AIM (Accelerate, Innovate, Move). It is a personalized path that allows you to transfer key processes to the cloud (Dynamics 365 Business Central in the Azure cloud).
AIM is to include Dynamics AX, Dynamics CRM, Dynamics GP, Dynamics NAV, Dynamics SL and Dynamics 365 Business Center on-premises.
Before migrating to the cloud, companies want to understand the business value, expected outcomes, and key steps and dependencies involved in moving on-premises business applications to the cloud. That is why AIM provides access to a dedicated team of migration advisors and offers expert assistance. In addition, AIM provides tools for a smooth migration process.
