I can’t give you a specific name. That could land me in a lot of trouble. So let’s just call it a “typical enterprise competitor”.
How does the price of Microsoft Dynamics 365 (formerly Dynamics CRM) compare to the price of this “typical enterprise competitor”?
Microsoft knew that you would ask this question. At a recent Dynamics CRM event they presented this slide entitled: Unmatched Value – More Capability.
This is the comparison you need to see:
