Microsoft has announced new AI and mixed-reality applications for its Dynamics 365 business software, putting its augmented-reality goggles HoloLens to use for businesses. Officials reiterated today that Microsoft will start rolling out its October 2018 Dynamics 365 and Power platform deliverables generally on October 1.

The new Dynamics 365 AI apps are targeted at sales people, customer service personnel and marketing teams.

Mixed reality, Gownder argues, has already proven its viability for businesses, but needs "this kind of continuous software innovation to truly succeed".
