In concert with the CRM 2011 Launch last week, we released a whitepaper titled
“Comparing xRM Application Framework and Force.com” targeted at developers & ISVs. While the two technologies have many technical similarities, they also have important differences. This paper illustrates why xRM (the framework that underpins CRM) is clearly the superior choice for independent software vendors (ISVs) and enterprises to build business applications.

In the paper, we closely examine the three major advantages of xRM that stand out. Instead of feature comparisons we focus on the strategic strengths of our offering that is unmatched.

  1. xRM provides familiar, widely used technologies for developers.
  2. xRM allows deploying applications both in the cloud and on-premises.
  3. xRM benefits from Microsoft’s broad platform investments.
