Microsoft's Dynamics team is continuing to lead the Windows 8 app charge. The ERP team has built a 'modern' app for shop-floor operators.

Microsoft's Dynamics CRM/ERP team has been at the forefront of showing that line-of-business (LOB) apps can work on Windows 8.

The team plans to reinforce that message during the kick-off keynote of Microsoft's Convergence 2014 conference on March 4 by introducing another Windows Store/Metro-Style app -- one for shop-floor control.
