This month we are giving you the low-down and links to the upcoming Dynamics 365 fall release, including a free Microsoft e-book on the future of AI, plus we take a look at the skill gap in Dynamics 365, and how we help to fill it with new and exclusive Dynamics 365 certification practice exams.
Microsoft has just made public the 245-page Release Overview for the October 2018 update, which includes hundreds of business transforming new features. Among these big changes include:
At the annual partner Inspire conference, Microsoft highlighted a 65% growth in Dynamics 365 business; while at the Dynamics Partners London Career Fair, it was reported that the UK IT industry needs an impossible 1.3 million people to join by 2021. The resulting skills chasm is making it increasingly harder to find skilled workers and is limiting organisations' ability to grow.
Training of both existing and new staff is key to filling this chasm and our training and certification courses have been designed to help you bridge this gap.
Last month's Microsoft Inspire conference was the biggest ever, and if you would like to know more, take a look at the core-note presentations or sample some of the 400+ On-Demand sessions!
Dynamics 365 certifications have long been the benchmark of competency for businesses who want to maximise the potential of their staff.
In order to support this, Training 4 Dynamics 365 are now enhancing our Certification Bootcamps with exclusive MCP practice exams built and developed by our own senior Dynamics trainers, designed specifically to help you become familiar with the topics tested in the actual MCP exams themselves.
Finally, for a limited time only, all of our Dynamics Certification Bootcamps include second shot exams, giving you the best possible chance of getting your certification.

Microsoft have announced the launch of Dynamics 365 for Marketing.
