The Benefits of Going All-Microsoft: Fact or Fiction?

The benefits most often cited for using all Microsoft software are the ease of user adoption, the safety of a big, powerful brand, and the virtual guarantee that technical support will always be there for you. They sound like compelling reasons, but how true are they? The answers are in today's feature blog post—and they may surprise you.

Here's a look at Microsoft's business solutions' underlying platforms, including where they originated, which Microsoft solutions share the same platforms, and where Microsoft's platform strategy is heading. It's all in today's second feature blog post, along with links for a free evaluation of a half-dozen Microsoft ERP and CRM solutions.
