Microsoft has launched a set of AI applications for customers of its Dynamics cloud customer relationship management (CRM) software in a bid to better compete with the market leader Salesforce.

But rather than requiring complex custom development, these new capabilities are designed for point-and-click setup and deployment by business users, or for easy customization and extension by developers. "If you can democratize the use of AI tools, every company can harness the power of AI".

Chevron's adoption of HoloLens in production wasn't a direct effect of its wider-ranging cloud partnership with Microsoft, the company says, but did help accelerate adoption through the sharing of engineering expertise and Chevron's familiarity with Azure and Dynamics 365, both of which are used by HoloLens' apps.
