Dynamics 365 Supply Chain encountered some performance issues with Master Planning so Microsoft replaced it with the Planning Optimization tool last year. The Planning Optimization tool allows master planning calculations to occur outside Supply Chain Management and its Azure SQL database. The benefits that are associated with Planning Optimization should include improved performance and minimized impact on SQL during master planning runs. Often quick planning runs are needed even during office hours, so planners can immediately react to demand or parameter changes. Of course there could be customers that need an exception to this migration. You can request an exception here.

Microsoft’s Project GigJam allows operating systems to work together to accomplish great things. It's exciting that Satya Nadella has swayed Microsoft's business focus from operating system wars to focusing on us, the customers. GigJam developed in part by Vijay Mital, General Manager of Ambient Computing & Robotics at Microsoft, does just that with this new app of apps by letting us work together EASILY regardless of the operating system.
Most of the source content of this blog comes from ZD NET’s Alan Lepofsky for Constellation Research since Satya Nadella introduced GigJam at the World Partner Conference in VERY high-level terms saying:
"Gigjam's technology empowers business workers to summon information from their line of business and SaaS apps, spontaneously divvy up the specific information and actions needed to get work done, keep track of each part, and bring it all to closure immediately."
While that description is accurate, I wanted to give you more insight. One that shows a glimpse of how Microsoft is continuously working to help you and your company accomplish more through products like Dynamics AX , Dynamics NAV or their newest product, Project GigJam.
Project GigJam’s name comes from the "gig-economy" trend, where people perform small jobs for different clients.
