You have to love CodePlex. We've placed the first of the Microsoft Dynamics CRM Accelerators on CodePlex and during our test phase have had hundreds of downloads. Just a quick reminder to those wondering what an accelerator is.
CRM Accelerators are a range of add-on solutions developed for Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0 customers and partners. Each accelerator is available at no cost and will showcase how the Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0 platform can be configured and extended to broaden marketing, sales and service capabilities. Microsoft Dynamics CRM customers and partners are encouraged to further extend these accelerators to meet their specific business needs.
Each accelerator may consist of the following:
The CRM notifications accelerator allows users to subscribe to the CRM “business events” that are significant to them, e.g. a salesperson is interested in new leads and opportunities assigned to them whereas a customer service representative is interested in new service cases assigned to them.
Once the user has subscribed (each user manages their subscription profile) to the types of events that are important to them they can elect how they want these event notifications to be delivered. Notifications are delivered via a Really Simple Syndication (RSS) feed and can be consumed with many desktop tools including Microsoft Outlook 2007 or the standard news feed Windows Vista® gadget.

When will the eService Accelator be ready?
BY when would the BI accelerator be released?
Congratulations to the Microsoft Dynamics CRM team who have released the first four of their accelerators
Do you have any information on when these may be released to work with a multi tenant hosted environment ? and not just the on-premise version . It would be great to be able to install these at a individual organsiation level.
