CRM 2011 On Premise & Office 365 RRS feed

  • Question

  • We will be moving to Office 365 and move from CRM4 to 2011 on premise. Office 365 offers different plane, i.e. P (professional/small business) and E (midsize business/enterprise). I chatted with a couple of representatives but they could not tell me if there are certain disadvantages/advantages to go with one over the other in regards to Dynamics CRM (in particular the active directory part). Does somebody here know?

  • Hi,

    Microsoft Office 365 launches without the support of CRM integration, the integration will be later only available for CRM 2011 online (http://niiranen.eu/crm/2011/06/office-365-launches-without-dynamics-crm-integration-for-document-management/) and still there is no news about the integration with CRM 2011 On-Premise.

  • JJ, thanks for the response. I am not too familiar with Sharepoint which seems mostly for document sharing. What I am mostly concerned about is single sign on, good integration with Exchange Server (for access through a local copy of Outlook, not online), and mobile devices (which probably has no influence on P vs E). So how does P vs E stack up in that regard?

    Btw, reading the article you sent and the ones it is pointing to, it seems that Microsoft is planning to add CRM as a service to the E plans just like other services (sharepoint, office, etc). So that won't help us much since we just renewed our CRM on-premise licenses (which actually is much cheaper than the online version, not counting our maintenance efforts).

  • Office 365, Sharepoint 2010 and CRM 2011 all will use Active Directory Federation Services (ADFS) integration. This will allow future integration with other directories like windows live for instance. Sharepoint is still on the MOSS 2007 version and does not support full ADFS yet. We have run into several clients that wanted CRM2011 integration with sharepoint. and no complete solution exists at this time.
