With rumors circling about problems with Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer and constant reminders of Microsoft’s battles with Google, Apple, and others, one might get the impression that Microsoft is a struggling business. However Microsoft’s FY11 Q3 Earnings Release, shows that Microsoft is experiencing growth in many of its divisions, and that includes its Dynamics CRM and ERP products.
For the quarter ending March 31, 2011, Microsoft Business Division reported a 21 percent growth. Microsoft Business Division includes Microsoft Office, as well as Microsoft Dynamics CRM, Dynamics GP, Dynamics NAV, Dynamics AX, and Dynamics SL. Along with a 26 percent increase in revenue for Microsoft Office products, Microsoft also enjoyed a 10 percent increase in revenue for Microsoft Dynamics products.
One can attribute Microsoft’s growth in these areas to the release of Office 365, which integrates Microsoft’s desktop Office products with cloud Office features and Microsoft SharePoint. The Dynamics growth may be attributed to the release of Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011, which unveiled a plethora of new features, including better integration with other Microsoft products, and improvements to the cloud implementation: Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online.
For those who did not take Microsoft’s commitment to businesses seriously, these performance results should remind everyone that Microsoft is helping more businesses succeed than ever before, and the list of success stories continues to grow. Microsoft provides Dynamics CRM and ERP products for small, medium, and large businesses that are flexible enough to produce positive results in a variety of enterprise environments and with a wide range of business models.
