At the end of January, Microsoft announced that it had published the Dynamics 365 and Power Apps 2024 release wave 1 plan, which will begin rolling out in April and be completed in September.  


This is always exciting news, as we know from past years how serious Microsoft is at delivering value and innovation for its users. Every year, the release wave delivers many enhancements and new features that make our lives easier. And this year, they haven’t disappointed.  


In their words: “This release reinforces our dedication to developing applications and experiences that contribute value to roles by dismantling barriers between data, insights, and individuals. This wave introduces diverse enhancements across various business applications, emphasizing improved user experiences, productivity, innovative app development and automation, and advanced AI capabilities.”
