Today's topics include Microsoft's promise to streamline workflows in Dynamics CRM 2016, Intel delivers System Studio 2016, Google expands express delivery service to the Midwest, and Dell and HP are set to sell Microsoft Surface Pro Tablets to enterprises.

Microsoft wants to make the time-robbing ritual of switching between Dynamics CRM and other apps a thing of the past. Yesterday, the company announced some of the features in the upcoming cloud and on-premises release of its customer relationship management platform, Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2016.

Less an update and more of an overhaul, the new software is emblematic of the ways Microsoft is "reinventing how companies think about productivity and business processes," Angela Bandlow, senior director of product marketing for Dynamics CRM, told eWEEK.

Intel today announced System Studio 2016, a major revision of its toolset for developers building applications for embedded systems and connected devices.

The new release provides a comprehensive suite of tools to help system and embedded software developers deliver more energy-efficient, higher-performing and smarter systems for connected devices across a wide range of systems and embedded platforms, from PCs and tablets to automobiles, medical devices and the growing Internet of things (IoT), Intel said.

Google has begun offering overnight delivery of nonperishable groceries, home goods, small appliances, toys and other items to consumers in six states across the Midwest.

The Google Express delivery service is now available to about 25 million people in Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Ohio and Wisconsin, the company announced Tuesday.

People in these areas can use the service to order products from a range of retailers and department stores, including Costco, Ace Hardware, Kohl's, Barnes & Noble, Fry's Electronics and Toys R Us.

Microsoft has gathered the support of two major OEMs, Dell and Hewlett-Packard, to help sell its Surface tablet to enterprise customers. In October, Dell will begin offering Surface Pro tablets and related accessories through its commercial sales unit in the United States and Canada.

The program, part of what Microsoft is calling the Surface Enterprise Initiative, will expand into Dell's business-themed online store later this year and then to the other 28 markets where Surface is sold in 2016. Meanwhile, HP announced that it will start selling the Surface Pro 3 through its direct sales force.
