microsoft inspire turnkey's highlights

Earlier this month, Microsoft held its annual Inspire event for partners – a showcase of the latest innovations for the various Dynamics 365 solutions, Azure and Microsoft 365. 

Below are some of the major highlights of this important two-day event. 

Dynamics 365 and Teams Integration

With the growth of Microsoft Teams into a mainstay tool for communication and collaboration, Microsoft is taking the next step and bringing the power of Teams and Dynamics 365 together: 

  • Updating the flow of work in Microsoft Teams with Microsoft Dynamics 365
  • Allowing anyone in an organization to view and collaborate on Dynamics 365 records, from within Teams at no additional cost. 
  • Drastically speeding up the flow of work with this integration
  • ISV Connect program upgrades through simplified, go-to-market benefits; ISV app license management and discounted Dev/Test/Demo environments; and reduced revenue sharing


Microsoft continues to expand their fast-growing Azure cloud platform with the following new investments:

  • API Management integration with the Event Grid, allowing for customers to configure and manage events when a new user is created
  • Two new specializations
    • Hybrid Operations and Management through the Azure Arc
    • Hybrid Cloud Infrastructure with the Azure Stack HCI
  • These specializations will increase the user’s visibility with sellers and customers
  • Azure SQL is joining Windows Server
  • Azure Virtual Desktop integration

Microsoft 365

  • New Windows 365 Cloud PC (rounds out the Microsoft Cloud Suite)
    • Use Windows 10 apps, data, and settings on any device through the Microsoft Cloud
    • Empower distributed employees with streamlined data across different devices

Microsoft Teams

  • Collaborative apps are coming that will bring structured business processes together



CEO Satya Nadella both started and wrapped up the event with a similar message: he wants Microsoft to be “the best partner for our partners.” Turnkey Technologies is proud to be a Gold Microsoft Partner, and ready to keep growing as both Turnkey and Microsoft set our sights higher.
