Microsoft has recently pulled the curtains back on its 2023 release Wave 2 plans for Dynamics 365 and Power Platform. Scheduled for deployment between October 2023 and March 2024, this dynamic release comes loaded with many innovative features, enhancements, and AI-enabled capabilities, reinforcing Microsoft’s sustained emphasis on empowering digital transformation.

The second Wave of the 2023 release is brilliantly designed to integrate data, insights, and people, enhancing the significance and impact of every role in an organization. It unveils cutting-edge capabilities that strengthen data-driven decision-making with AI-led insights. It also provides more user-friendly ways for automating tasks and processes while promoting collaboration seamlessly integrated into the workflow. Moreover, it pioneers new low-code solutions, democratizing app development by making it accessible to all.

A flagship innovation of this release is the introduction of the Release Planner for Dynamics 365 and Microsoft Power Platform. This multifaceted tool delivers extraordinary adaptability, empowering users to personalize, filter, sort, and distribute plans seamlessly in alignment with their preferences.
