Microsoft discloses fuzzy online Dynamics roadmap

Second half of this year slated for worldwide release

Build a business case: developing custom apps

Microsoft made lots of noises over the weekend about the general availability of its Dynamics CRM Online software, which will hit 32 markets across the globe in the second half of this year.

However, the company didn’t announce a definitive date for the worldwide release.

It said that customers in the US, Canada, Puerto Rico, Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hong Kong, Hungary, India, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Luxembourg, Malaysia, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Singapore, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the United Kingdom could begin consulting with Microsoft partners about the company’s Dynamics CRM service from today.

Redmond is also pushing its Dynamics GP software, which hits general availability status on 1 May, by offering US customers a promotional $19 per user, per month licence for the business software.

Microsoft added that its Dynamics AX product, which is geared towards the mid-size retail sector, would be pumped out to 16 countries on 1 August this year.

Other markets won’t get their hands on the release until an undisclosed date “early next year”, Microsoft confirmed.

The software vendor has the full lowdown here. ®
