I had it on my plate to review this document but the good folks at Sonoma beat me to it… again. So I pinged my good friend and CRM MVP Mike Snyder and got permission to repost it here for those of you who aren’t reading the Sonoma Partners blog regularly.
We just got our hands on the updated Microsoft Dynamics CRM Statement of Direction from Microsoft, and we wanted to share our thoughts on the document. The Statement of Direction (SoD) outlines the future direction of Microsoft Dynamics CRM over the short and longer term. If you remember, Microsoft last updated this document back in April 2010…so this May 2011 SoD release is a pretty big milestone. While the May 2011 SoD is just 7 pages long (short compared to the 20 page April 2010 update), it does contain some goodies.
Here’s our highlights from the document:
Of course this all sounds like GREAT new stuff and we can’t wait to get it! So we’re guessing the next question on your mind is when can customers expect to see new versions of Microsoft Dynamics CRM? The SoD covers future release timing too:
From a customer and partner perspective, I am really jazzed up about the semi-annual release cycles. It will be outstanding to get new features and capabilities more quickly. However from a book author perspective, I am slightly terrified! :)
Of course, you can download and read the Microsoft Dynamics CRM Statement of Direction from our website.
Thanks Mike for providing early insight.....
