Managed Services and Microsoft Dynamics: Part II
MSPmentor last month suggested Microsoft Dynamics would emerge as a major force in the managed services world. A new piece of anecdotal evidence backs up that theory.
Specifically, Tribridge, a Microsoft-focused consulting firm, says it has acquired Productive Gap, a Microsoft Dynamics CRM solutions expert in Austin, Texas. In recent months, Productive Gap has been promoting hosted CRM services, much like other Dynamics solutions providers across North America.
TheTribridge-Productive Gap combo is the latest addition to the MSPmentor M&A tracker, which closely follows mergers and acquisitions in the managed services sector.
In some ways, Microsoft has struggled to reinvent its business to address software as a service (SaaS). But Dynamics, Exchange Server and SharePoint appear to be a powerful trio in the SaaS universe.
And as we indicated in February, Microsoft solutions providers are beginning to partner with each other to offer Dynamics.
Now, Dynamics-driven mergers are starting. The Tribridge-Productive Gap combo strives to up the ante, and the combined companies hope to be known as “the national Microsoft Dynamics experts,” according to a prepared release.
