Microsoft Dynamics 365 and Power Platform 2021 Release
In January, Microsoft made available the 2021 release wave 1 for Dynamics 365 and the Power Platform. Microsoft has announced that GA rollouts for the release wave 1 have legitimately instigated, starting six months featuring the release of hundreds of new capabilities for both the Power Platform and Dynamics 365.
For the Power Platform, emphasis will exist on Power BI, Power Apps, Power Automate, and Power Virtual Agents, in addition to data integration for the entire platform. In contrast, the first release wave for this year for Dynamics 365 will be bringing updates to Marketing, Sales, Customer Service, Field Service, Finance, Supply Chain Management, Project Operations, Guides, Human Resources, Commerce, Fraud Protection, Business Central, Customer Insights, Customer Voice, and industry accelerators.
At its virtual Business Applications Launch Event, Microsoft emphasized not only the new competencies for Dynamics 365 and Power Platform but also certain of the updates announced for these platforms last month. Certain of the highlights of the event comprise:
The newest invention on client journey orchestration capabilities for Dynamics 365 Marketing
Discussion about Microsoft’s industry cloud approach, stated previously, including Microsoft Cloud for Retail, Microsoft Cloud for Financial Services, Microsoft Cloud for Manufacturing, and Microsoft Cloud for Nonprofit.
New competencies for Dynamics 365 Commerce that introduce B2B e-commerce offerings, synergize task management with Microsoft Teams, and further bring together frontline and backend operations.

New Power Platform capabilities announced will accelerate low-code application development for business users, business analysts, IT admins, and professional developers.
If the previous release is anything to go by, the release wave 2 timelines should be revealed in June, with the release wave plans becoming available the month after. Microsoft’s Business Applications Summit is set to be held on May 4, and it should assist in this release.
