GDPR and Microsoft Dynamics 365 – readiness of the solution for the General Data Protection Regulation

What is GDPR?

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) defines new rules for organizations providing goods and services for EU citizens, or the ones gathering and analyzing the data concerning EU citizens. GDPR will enter into force in May 2018. This means that there is just over a year to prepare for the changes, and one should be ready because the Regulation imposes many new obligations on data administrators, severe penalties for non-compliance, and the requirement to report infringements.

GDPR and Microsoft Dynamics 365

Microsoft and its solutions support GDPR principles and may help to enhance the data protection and management in every organization. Microsoft Dynamics 365 ensures the security of the data in many areas.

Secure identity

The Microsoft Dynamics 365 platform in the cloud was based on the Azure Active Directory technology that offers a safe authentication process for the person logging into the system. Hence, management of individual users and groups they constitute is much safer. Authorizations can be given and revoked in an easy way. Learn how to protect your business with the use of cloud-based identity and access management.

Secure applications and data

Your data in Microsoft Dynamics 365 are additionally protected thanks to encryption – all connections between customers and Microsoft data centers are encrypted. All public endpoints are secured by TLS (Transport Layer Security), which ensures an increased security of the connection between the browser and server. See detailed information about security measures in Microsoft Dynamics 365.

Secure infrastructure

Microsoft Dynamics 365 is hosted in Microsoft data centers where all data protection mechanisms are employed. Unauthorized traffic to and inside the centers is blocked and the infrastructure performing these actions is being continuously controlled and tested in order to ensure the best possible security of the stored data. The team responsible for Microsoft Dynamics 365 works in accordance with the stringent standards of Microsoft Operations Security Assurance.

Role-based security

Security standards based on user’s roles and tasks within the organization are implemented in all Microsoft Dynamics 365 applications. It means that users can access only those parts of the system they have authorization for. The access is determined by the employee’s position. The administrator can easily manage authorizations – granting and revoking them at any time.

Threat management

In the Microsoft Dynamics 365 environment there are anti-malware measures that guard against Internet threats. The system can also detect intrusion and prevent DDoS (distributed denial-of-service) attacks. Read more about physical security employed by Microsoft.

Five steps towards reaching compliance with GDPR

It is worthwhile, today, to take a closer look at how data is managed in your organization. There are five crucial steps that can help:

1. First of all, you should examine what type of personal data is collected by your organization and where the data is stored.

2. That knowledge should lead to an audit – define the rules of access and handling of the gathered data.

3. Protect the data – provide control measures in accordance with the rigorous requirements that will detect all weak points and prevent undesired access or data leaks.

4. Reporting – make sure the documentation is complete and all the cases of giving access are well documented.

5. Remember to check, on regular basis, whether your data protection system functions properly and stays in accordance with the safety procedures – thanks to that you will decrease the risk of irregularities.

The Digital Transformation of Business

Companies are embracing the cloud. The benefits stemming from digitalization and investing in the cloud solutions are the reason why organizations more and more willingly decide to undergo the digital transformation.

However, there are no more doubts whether to implement the changes, the issue many entrepreneurs are not easy about is how to properly deploy them. It is a justified concern because the answer depends on many factors and the specific character of the organization.

Changes are not easy

The Digital Transformation of Business is not merely based on new technological solutions (although these, according to 47% of respondents facilitate the changes the most – read Today’s Business Technology Wish List for Digital Transformation). The crucial point is a fresh look at the current business models and a thorough analysis of what elements of the existing concepts require improvement and which ones a total reconstruction. There cannot be a digital transformation without creating new models and strategies, which will carry out the defined business goals.

Why People Matter for Your Digital Transformation

Many organizations face however reluctance or a lack of a flexible approach towards new solutions. The problem lies in both, the culture of the organization that does not adapt well to rapid changes or innovations, as well as in legal barriers. Without a proper communication of the validity of the changes and stages of their deployment, one should not expect an understanding and support of their employees. Therefore, it is worthwhile to engage the team in the planning process by collecting their ideas or remarks. This would allow the employees to have an influence on that process, and not being reduced merely to its elements.

Digitalization in few steps

While the majority of organizations declare that digital transformation of business has already begun, and some of them talk about getting ahead of the competition in that area, there are still many companies that look for solutions that would accelerate the digitalization processes. The clues given in the graphics below may provide certain assistance. Particular attention should be given to the development of digital DNA culture within the organization, as well as to the decision-making process – they should be based on data, not intuition.

Customer-Centric Digital Transformation

It is also worthy to be aware of the 5 top challenges of digital transformation of business that are most often mentioned by the companies, which have already undergone the first stage of digitalization. They emphasize the importance of comprehension of customers’ behavior and the proper planning of the required resources. Gathering the data needed for evaluation of the accurate value of digital transformation or the need of creating a culture of agility in the organization are quite significant as well.

Netwise’s Experts: 2017 Trends in IT and Business

The year 2016 brought about many important events both for the market and Netwise.  We witnessed Microsoft Dynamics 365 Launch – a set of intelligent business applications in the cloud, or LinkedIn acquisition by Microsoft. The Redmond company announced also investments in the European cloud amounting to over $3 billion and made recommendations for cloud regulations.

2017 Trends – New Technologies

We have selected few trends which, in our opinion, will be significant in 2017.

The customer and their needs will still occupy the central position. Companies will automate requests execution processes, monitor the social media, and take into account the data placed by the customers through self-care portals. It will facilitate carrying out a personalized and coherent service regardless of the notification types, including SLA monitoring.

In 2017 one should not forget about data. It is worthwhile to move towards business solutions that allow for managing the data in real time. Integration with the tools already known by the employees is quite important for it makes their job much more effective and easier. Geographic spread will not be an obstacle – business is increasingly more eager to choose the cloud to offer the specialists the access to data from any device, channel, or application. A cutting edge company provides their employees with one up-to-date source of information.

Netwise’s Experts and 2017 Trends

Here are the most important trends of 2017 according to Netwise’s experts:

  • Employing ready-made IT solutions / business application adapted to the needs of a particular industry
  • Choosing suppliers who are able to deploy complex, already integrated solutions, e.g. Dynamics 365 and the moduls: Sales, Customer Service (CRM), or Operations (ERP)
State of art and responsive web applications, stable technologies, Polish IT specialists

Maciej Zawadowski, Division Manager, Custom Projects, Netwise

Data in marketing, channels integration, using Predictive Marketing

Grzegorz Przebieracz, Division Manager, Cloud Projects, Netwise

  • New technologies in communications. IT tools that carry out tasks in a comprehensive way – facilitate planning, execution and settling of omni-channel campaigns.

Netwise completed a CRM and Citizen Portal deployment in the USA

Netwise has completed two projects in the United States. The projects have been carried out for Pokagon-Band of Potawatomi – a governmental organization providing services for a Native Indian community in the states of Indiana and Michigan. Netwise performed a migration of the Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 system to the 2016 version and was chosen to implement a Citizen Portal.

Pokagon Band of Potawatomi Indians are a federally recognized self-governing tribe operating under the umbrella of the Bureau of Indian Affairs. The customer has decided to entrust Netwise with the migration of Dynamics CRM 2011 to Dynamics CRM 2016 and building an education-related Citizen Portal. Pokagon and Netwise Architects chose Microsoft CRM Portals (former ADXStudio) as the underlying platform.

The main architect, on the customer’s side, Pawel Majkowski is responsible for a wide spectrum of actions, including managing the deployment project, building the vision compliant with formal regulations, mapping end user requirements, as well as coordination tests and final approval of the work performed by Netwise.

“We needed an experienced integration partner who would not only efficiently carry out the migration of our system to the newest version of Dynamics CRM 2016 but would also modify or, if necessary, rebuild the system, so the final product meets our expectations. Netwise’s experience and competencies have convinced us that the project will be in good hands. After the first stage of the cooperation we are fully satisfied and the project has been completed without any issues.”

Citizen Portal for American Citizens

Our expectations were firmly crystallized: we wanted our residents to be able in a simple and quick way to manage the information about the stages of studies, achieved results, or scholarship applications, among other things. We wanted the portal to be easy to use and open for future development, without the need of employing developers. After we assessed the possibilities together with Netwise we decided that the Portal should be built with Microsoft CRM Portals” – Pawel Majkowski explains.

Łukasz Bratko, Division Manager, Ongoing Projects, speaks about the project:

“Dynamics CRM system required a number of custom modifications. Applications were rebuilt, we got rid of external plug-ins, e.g. deprecated Silverlight and replaced them with our own solutions. In the upgraded system we utilized all the newest functionalities offered by Dynamics CRM 2016.”

The Lead Consultant and Partner at Netwise, Jakub Skałbania, comments on the project:

“This is our first project in the United States and straight away we are working for public administration. It is a considerable challenge and entirely new experience for Netwise. The choice of Netwise by an American institution is a confirmation of our consequently implemented strategy of expansion beyond Poland. We execute deployments for companies In Europe and in the Middle East but an implementation for a federally recognized American self-governed institution is a great distinction for a Polish company and something to boast of. It is our policy not to brag about our plans; we just inform about their realization. That is why we waited with publishing this information until the projects are finished and approved by the Customer. In the coming months we will significantly expand our presence in the U.S.”

The Ongoing Projects team is carrying out the project on the side of Netwise. The department is responsible for audits, migrations and deployment takeovers.

Digital Transformation in the Financial Sector

More and more companies become interested in transferring their resources and parts of their processes to the cloud. We observe a progressive transition from the traditional on premise model, which requires from a company to take on the responsibility of keeping and maintaining the servers. The office packages offered in the cloud are gaining popularity and the digital transformation is often seen as a condition for further development of the company. The archaic tools are being replaced with the solutions provided by the SaaS model (that is Software as a Service).

The need for change

According to statistics presented The Economist, for 77% of the companies carrying out the process of digital transformation is regarded as a strategic priority for 2016. Most of them (82%) have also created within their management a position of a leader, who is responsible for overseeing the process of introducing the changes. It is difficult, however, to clearly state who should be assigned with this duty because, depending on how the managerial structure is designed, the task can be entrusted to not only CEOs, but also to marketing, finance or IT managers.

The companies from the financial industry point out the need to invest in digital solutions and are aware of their impact on business. What really counts for them is gaining a significant competitive advantage. As a priority for digital investment in 2016 those companies indicate improving customer experience and the organizational agility. The key to success is, among other things, to prepare a business and investment plan. Through the use of digital solutions CFOs have access to all the data, enabling them to model and create forecasts and plans.

Digital transformation in the financial sector – the benefits of the cloud

What are the reasons behind the decision of the companies from the financial industry to move to the cloud-based CRM systems? The ones choosing to invest are mainly driven by the assumption of increased mobility offered to their employees (like access to all the apps from different places and from any device). They expect to have a greater insight into the needs of their customers as well. Surveys were conducted to investigate the activities of such organizations and employees themselves have expressed a strong need for change. When asked about their opinion on the tools they used previously, they had described them as inefficient and outdated. Due to this fact, the organizations often decide to implement a completely new platform such as Microsoft Dynamics 365. The process is simply less time-consuming. It is also a more effective approach than adapting the previously used tools to the new needs and requirements of both employees and customers. Some financial companies emphasize that their further development without the use of new solutions is almost impossible. The main benefits cited by users of Dynamics 365 are primarily the increase in the efficiency of the operations, the 360 degree view of the organization and the needs of its customers. The achieved increase in customers’ satisfaction is invaluable. Moreover, the data are stored in a central database, what facilitates an immediate extraction of information needed in order to conduct, for example, an extensive business analysis or preparation of reports.

Microsoft introduces Microsoft Dynamics 365 and Microsoft AppSource

Microsoft announced yesterday the introduction of Microsoft Dynamics 365 and Microsoft AppSource. It is a further step towards one, modern and ready-to-use business platform from Microsoft.

The Cloud Is the Future of Business Applications

Business processes are key component of every business. Companies across all sectors try to adapt customer engagement and operational processes to the digital era in order to make their businesses more secure and to ensure their further development. What digital transformation requires is a certain degree of business processes agility as well as a unification across the business, which in practice means gradual transition away from the traditional division between the ERP and CRM systems.

What New Opportunities Will Microsoft Dynamics 365 Bring About?

Microsoft Dynamics 365 is, above all, a combination of the best features of two cloud solutions: Dynamics CRM and ERP systems. It is a single platform available in the cloud that is equipped with particular business applications covering various areas, such as finances, sales, customer service.

In order to secure coherent action and easy modifications Dynamics 365 uses the common model of data and the platform compliant with the applications from the Office 365 family.

Thanks to Microsoft 365 Customers Will Be Able to:

  • Begin work with applications they need at the moment. Applications that are specific for particular roles, industries, businesses will allow to gradually transfer the whole business into the cloud.
  • Reach better productivity where it is needed. It will be possible by connecting structured workflows available in Dynamics CRM with unstructured data needed for the activities of employees (e.g. Office 365 documents, sheets).
  • Use the built-in, ready-to-use analytic tools (PowerBI and Cortana) that integrate big data bases and IoT data into business processes.
  • Prepare themselves for the growth, thanks to flexible applications that allow creation, modification and broadening the scope of processes in real time. With products like PowerBI, PowerApps and Microsoft Flow employees will adapt the processes without requiring IT support.
Microsoft Dynamics 365

Why the Name Dynamics 365 Was Chosen and What Does It Mean?

Microsoft Dynamics 365 is the next generation of business applications in the cloud. These applications provide a number of possibilities that are offered by Microsoft: greater productivity, introduction of advanced analytics into the everyday activities, employing the opportunities given by PowerBi and IoT with the simultaneous use of a safe cloud Azure, new platform for applications, and data model (common for all solutions and processes). The new name emphasizes the crucial meaning of connecting two until now separate worlds: structured business processes and distributed products that come as result of employees’ activities.

Hence, it is not difficult to agree with Microsoft that the new solution will help to revolutionize business.

We enable transformation. Netwise team will analyse you current business needs, help your organization to create a digital strategy, deploy the right business platform (Dynamics 365, CRM, portals, self-care, mobile applications, SFA, digital marketing).

Why is Microsoft buying LinkedIn?

Microsoft purchases LinkedIn for exorbitant $26.2 billion. What does buying the world’s largest business social networking service by the Redmond-based company mean?

Jakub Skałbania, Lead Consultant and the Partner in Netwise comments:

Data, data, data. The acquisition of LinkedIn translates into obtaining by Microsoft a large, over 430 million contacts database of the biggest in the world business social networking service. It is, above all, a plentiful source of knowledge for Microsoft’s business applications and services, which progressively fare well as standard services in the digital transformation age. Microsoft Dynamics CRM and Office 365 products will in particular benefit from it.

Key benefits of Microsoft buying LinkedIn

Let us imagine a fusion of these incredibly valuable data with the stored in the systems business information – we get a uniform and professional profile of a potential customer (or a candidate or competition); we obtain a contextual stream of their activities and, what is more, from the very start we get it in the context interesting for us (business environment). Furthermore, in the occurrence of adding a person our CRM system we have a full access to the history of their records, career steps, as well as the relationship with our competition and potential clients.

One of the first benefits of purchasing LinkedIn, as it seems, will be a thorough integration with Dynamics CRM and Delve – an Office 365 product. On the basis of recommendations and a grand collection of LinkedIn profiles metadata CRM Online and Delve users will be able to receive information from LinkedIn on who is an expert in a given field as well as who has ever been interested in a particular product or service.

To sum up, Microsoft has bought the LinkedIn’s data base and not the concept of the portal. It is clear.

Here are some reasons why is Microsoft buying LinkedIn

Knowledge

Microsoft possesses an impressive business products portfolio. Outlook provides the knowledge of our calendar and meetings, Delve says a lot about the documents created in our company, Sharepoint gives access into the internal communication, and Microsoft CRM is a data base of our relationships with the customers.

LinkedIn and its Economic Graph

What about LinkedIn? The company has created the Economic Graph – a digital representation of every employee and their CVs, every available position and all the required skills that a candidate must have in order to get the job. Moreover, LinkedIn owns Lynda.com – a social learning tool that enables attaining competences. For Microsoft it means even more data for Azure machine learning, analyses, BI processes, but also the possibility of creating a service where organizations begin to use business systems (including CRM) that already have ready to go data packets about the market.

Microsoft buying LinkedIn

Office 365 will profit as well.

The products from the Office 365 packet will get a significant amount of information. It is speculated that on account of that the sale of the office software packets subscriptions in the cloud will increase, especially in case of large organizations and small firms. We should remember that Office is a powerful tool with 1.2 billion users including 70 million business subscriptions.

Productivity is a key

Satya Nadella, Microsoft’s CEO explained in the letter to the employees that LinkedIn’s acquisition is a realization of the vision about redefining the notion of productivity in business. He also notes that elements like the way people look for a job, develop competencies, sell, offer solutions, work, and eventually achieve success, require a coherent business environment – a place, network that will gather the information related to the professional life (LinkedIn) and the knowledge from Office 365 and Dynamics CRM. We are witnesses to the beginning of that world. If you use Dynamics CRM for seeking and following up sales leads, LinkedIn will give you easy access to the contacts database.

Cortana and mobile

The intention of buying LinkedIn fits well the Microsoft’s Cloud First, Mobile First strategy. The company consequently develop its cloud solutions, adapts them to mobile devices in order to make Dynamics CRM with analytics / BI or social tools available from anywhere, anytime. In the last quarter LinkedIn registered over 45 billion page views, 60% of which came from mobile devices.
