Integration CRM 2011 and website RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello All,

    I did find few posts showing similarity, but still need some clarity.

    We are a team of three two working on website and one is CRM expert.

    We want some information to be back/forth between CRM and website.

    What could be the best approach as two developers has no idea of CRM development.

    Thanks in advance

  • For my last two projects, we've exposed a web service from CRM side with necessary methods.

    The website consumes the web service and interact with CRM to transfer the information back and forth through datatable/XML.

    So, you may assign that CRM expert to develop for the web service methods which are going to be necessary for the website to transfer the information back and forth.

  • is there any harm if we just consume the CRM service in website?

  • There's no harm if you just consume the CRM service directly from the website if the developer of the website is the same team and the .NET framework for the website is 4.0 and above. You may assign the CRM expert to develop the necessary CRUD functions in the website by consuming the CRM service directly.

    For my case, we integrated with Sharepoint 2010 site and the site developed by a partner so that we had to develop an additional layer of web service from our CRM team.
