Application Lifecycle Management for Resellers

Date: Tuesday, October 30, 2018 | From: 14:00:00 to 15:00:00 | Room: AMAZONE

Microsoft resellers (VARs) maintain processes to manage the lifecycle of the applications they deliver. With Business Central, we are building tools to help VARs manage the application lifecycle of selling, deploying, setting up, customizing, upgrading, and supporting Business Central tenants, in a SaaS environment. We’ll present improvements being made, showing how these tools will help VARs better manage the relationships they have with their customers.
