Great NEW Accelerators for Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0
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 they 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:
- Customisations (entities, forms, views)
- Workflow definitions
- Business Intelligence elements such as custom reports (.RDL’s)
- Functional code samples (strictly adhering to SDK guidelines)
- Documentation for installing, operating, localising and extending the solution
- An automated installer
Each accelerator will be fully supported as per any other customisation for Microsoft Dynamics CRM that follows SDK guidelines. Additionally, all samples are supplied with full source-code so they can be extended further to meet specific customer requirements. Because of Microsoft Dynamics CRM’s services-based architecture and metadata-driven application capabilities, accelerators can be deployed for both on-demand and on-premise environments.
Through the CRM Accelerators, customers and partners benefit from new functionality on a more frequent basis, and this new functionality can be deployed in your environment quickly and easily. The list of accelerators already released is as follows:
- Event Management
- Enterprise Search
- Extended Sales Forecasting
Microsoft’s Codeplex site will be the key source for consultants, developers and customers to collaborate in this community initiative. There are discussion forums for each accelerator and all community members are encouraged to provide feedback and share their experience and knowledge to make these solutions better for Microsoft Dynamics CRM customers and partners.
