The Common Data model for Automotive is a Microsoft standard Data language for the automotive and equipment industry that enables companies to share data across applications, it is the foundation for future proof business applications like Annata 365.
Last year Annata started a collaboration with Microsoft to create an official Microsoft Common Data Model for Automotive, a joint effort with Microsoft and Oxlo to establish a new industry standard data model that partners and customers can use as a common basis, accelerate business and drive more synergy across solutions.
Annata has years of experience and focus in building solutions for the Automotive, Heavy Equipment and Industrial Equipment industry, connecting marketing, sales and services for OEMs, importers, dealers and associated services. By partnering with Microsoft and sharing our IP, industry insights and experience to establish the Common Data Model we believe we serve our customers even better by driving more business value across their solutions, helping them to digitally transform their business across the value chain on the Microsoft Dynamics and Power Platform.
"The Microsoft Common Data Model for Automotive is the first of its kind to provide a model that reflects industry best-practices, insight and integration across existing vehicle retail networks, and also incorporating emerging mobility businesses. Our goal is to build a community around customers and partners that want to collaborate and continue to improve upon industry best practices. A goal of the Automotive Accelerator program is to build a "Community CDM", and not simply a "Microsoft CDM" (Smith Codio, Principal Program Manager at Microsoft.)
The Microsoft Industry team has already begun promoting the Automotive CDM to its customers and partners in an effort to ignite and support their digital transformation journey. Microsoft CEO, Satya Nadella in his keynote at Build, applauded Annata as a great example of an ISV that combines the various Microsoft platforms to build next generation business applications for the automotive industry.
“Annata is building a solution for automotive and this is for fleet management, equipment rental compainies inside of the automotive industry. They built (their solutions) on top of Dynamics 365 and they are using Power BI, cog services and intergrating with Dynamics..“ (Satya Nadella, Microsoft CEO)
Today, Annata is the only ISV that has a solution set built on and extending from this CDM. We release our solutions in line with Dynamics 365, it’s the foundation for future proof business applications like Annata 365. The Automotive Accelerator, is now live on AppSource, a free offering from Microsoft.
