We are now almost less than a month away from CRMUG Summit. My CRM Nerd self has been already reviewing the Agendaand planning the sessions I will attend. You do not need to register for each session but you can mark the ones you plan on attending for future reference. It looks like a good variety of sessions and technical levels. I hope to see all of you there!
Now to the topic at hand – CRM news of the week!
We will start off with PowerObject’s, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to Dynamics CRM Implementations. This goes over the things you need to get in order as you plan your CRM implementation. This can apply to new implementations or upgrades. It focuses on planning, security and movie references.
Hitachi Solutions discusses Microsoft Dynamics CRM Rapid Release Cycle and Why you Should Try to Keep Up. This talks about Microsoft’s update plan, why you should keep your system up to date, and some items to keep in mind when you do. One interesting comment is in regards to how upgrades have changed over the years and how CRM 2013 may be the last “traditional” upgrade. We may continue with incremental updates as the system continues to adapt to support new technologies instead of large new versions every few years.
Also there are a few Tips of the Day to check out:
- Mixed Messages – When updating an Entity name don’t forget to update the Messages to match
- Sales Literature vs. SharePoint – this discussed the benefits of both approaches and some things to consider
- In a Parallel Dimension – If you are having some performance issues, have you checked your Max Degrees of Parallelism
That’s all the news I have to pass on today. Have a great weekend!
