Microsoft is the only company that can deliver both the depth of first-party business solutions and fully integrated analytics and productivity at cloud scale. Delivering on this ability requires true SaaS business apps that directly integrate business processes. For example: Microsoft 365 (formerly Office 365) productivity is infused into business processes, e.g. invoices surfaced directly in Outlook vs. opening accounts receivable. Power BI delivers powerful analytics and reporting. In addition, use Microsoft PowerApps for easy integration with external data sources and services.
