In this episode (brought to you by KingswaySoft), we discuss the challenges faced by customers who try to build a greenfield Dynamics 365 business application with in-house developers without guidance or direction from an experienced consulting partner or individual. While there is development involved when building complex systems there is a learning curve that must be taken into consideration. Project teams that attempt to learn the Dynamics platform and meet project deadlines tend to get their experience at the customer’s expense.
