Microsoft is working hard to collaborate all the Dynamics 365 apps on a single platform with One Dynamics One Platform (ODOP) to help organizations run their operations hassle-free. In this article, we will get a quick introduction from Microsoft Dynamics consulting company about One Dynamics One Platform.
What is ODOP?
ODOP brings finance and operations apps together with Microsoft Power Platform, allowing customers to maximize the potential of Power Platform for each finance and operations environment.
What is the Objective of ODOP?
In an organization, front-office and back-office integration have always worked together to run the business smoothly. Both sectors engaged in different activities with the same organizational goal. Integrating both sectors takes significant time and incurs a large amount in any implementation. In addition, it is a challenging task to integrate heterogeneous applications as it poses complications to Microsoft partners, customers, ISVs and admins, as well as users' experience in the end-to-end scenarios.
For this reason, Microsoft has developed One Dynamics One Platform with One Admin, One User, One Developer, and One Insight is the vision to enable the converged experiences across financial and operational and the Power Platform
Key Principles of One Dynamics One Platform
- Be opportunistic; don’t rewrite
- Take a crawl, walk, run approach.
- New work should align with the Power Platform.
- X++ continues to be supported as before.
Features of One Dynamics One Platform
One Admin made Microsoft Dynamics 365 an app, not an environment. Businesses or Partners can use the Dynamics 365 apps in the same environment context. The one admin concept is deployed on a new database stack. Furthermore, it also supports unified lifecycle operations such as copy/backup/restore. The one admin feature of ODOP is available in PPAC UX and Power Platform API.
One User (Experience)
A customer, product, contact, address, currency, and so on are the core building components of a business scenario. These fundamental elements must be linked when using both front-office Customer Engagement apps and back-office Finance & Operations apps in your business eco-system to generate data and process harmony in cross-application situations. One User (Experience) in ODOP aims to mix and match assets and consistent user experience. With mix and match, canvas and model-driven apps can be embedded into financial and operational apps. And this way, it helps businesses integrate front-end and back-end operations.
In the One Developer feature, Microsoft provides the best tool and experiences, such as power platform tools for visual studio and power platform CLI, to make the development process more manageable. The One Developer environment is provisioned from PPAC, and the additional option to VHD/CHE helps the developer to run the tools on their own machine.
