Today the NDA is lifted on 2020 Release Wave 1 for Dynamics
365 and Power Platform.
In this blog I will be covering the User Experience (UX) enhancements within this release focusing particularly on the new visualisations, user interface improvements, and extensibility of controls across Model-Driven, Canvas, Mixed Reality, and Portals.
The updated PCF CLI tooling has just been released (July 2019), and one major enhancement is supporting mock datasets (Your Data within PCF Test Harness).
I’ve had the opportunity to work with some fantastic clients and projects over the years, but one stand out client in my career would be SA Water. A South Australian Water Utility company, responsible for delivering water services to some 1.5 million people who live in the state of South Australia as well as businesses.
SA Water had a long term vision of what they wanted to do, being slightly behind other utilities in terms of electronic billing and customer centric design, SA Water digital transformation team had a clear approach and roadmap that would enable them to leap frog other utilities by strategically betting on future technologies. Bots, Field Service Management are prime examples.
The technology stack, centered around the Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2016 (presently being upgraded to Dynamics 365) that would enable customer centric and relationship management features. Together with an ADX Studio Portal to deliver online services. The process and analysis was performed through a Human Centred Design (HCD) approach, that emphasized with their customers by understanding their frustrations and wishes.
And with that, a project was born to launch the mySAWater Portal that would set the bed rock foundation for future transformative projects at the utility.
Toby Evans, SA Water’s Digital Transformation Manager, presented the mySAWater solution and talks more in-depth about the vision, roadmap, technology, and what considerations were made during the time. Here’s the full presentation.
