Microsoft HoloLens mixed reality glasses have always been interesting technology, but it's never been clear how the company would move from novelty device to actual viable business use cases. Today, it made a move toward the latter, announcing a couple of applications designed to put the HoloLens to work in Dynamics 365, giving it a real business purpose. Dynamics 365 is Microsoft's one-stop shop for CRM and ERP, where a company can work on some of its key business software functions including field service in an integrated fashion.
Like virtually every other major tech company, Microsoft is currently on a mission to bring machine learning to all of its applications. "Many people, when they talk about CRM, or ERP of old, they referred to them as systems of oppression, they captured data," said Alysa Taylor, Microsoft corporate VP for business applications and industry.
The additions to its cloud-based software came two years after HoloLens was launched. The new AI applications, Dynamics 365 Layout and Dynamics 365 Remote Assistant, help connect live remote colleagues with the use of HoloLens, Microsoft said in a blog. Citing oil company Chevron Corp's (CVX.N) use of the applications, Microsoft said they help to remotely collaborate with and assist firstline workers and remote experts, reducing travel time.

Google's G Suite is launching new "Work Insights" tools that show managers whether and how employees are using productivity apps like Docs, Sheets, and Slides. The product, currently in beta, will let IT admins see if employees might need training for certain apps and show them how much teams are collaborating. The tool is similar to Microsoft's analytics product for its much more popular suite of Office 365 business apps.

Microsoft won't be doing high-touch engagements to help businesses boost customer service with artificial intelligence. Microsoft MSFT on Tuesday announced new easy-to-use cloud services that draw on artificial intelligence to help with certain kinds of work -- namely customer service and marketing. The move could help Microsoft's Dynamics cloud business software become more competitive with Salesforce CRM , which has begun offering premium AI features for its services.
