Session Blurb


Driving Leadership in CRM and xRM by competing with Dynamics CRM


4.55pm – 5.40pm

Ross Dembecki and Jon Farmer

Discussion of the Microsoft Dynamics CRM strategy to pursue the CRM opportunity in Australia and enter even bigger opportunity for xRM. Learn how Microsoft is competing effectively through investments in industry capability and about our software-plus-services vision for CRM. Microsoft is making a big push into line-of-business apps built on the Dynamics CRM platform, known as xRM. As the "C" in CRM equates to customer, the "x" in xRM equates to "anything" management. Examples include Vendor, Construction and Patient Management. Existing Partner, or those looking to get started in CRM will find actionable information in this session.

Cheers, Ross
