If you are new to Dynamics 365, then I suggest checking out our Dynamics 365 transition presentation located here. Microsoft has made it very clear that Dynamics 365 is a cloud service, and will NOT be available for on premise CRM users. If you are an On Premise user, there’s no need to worry. Beringer has extensive experience migrating Customers from CRM On Premise to Dynamics 365. If you are looking to migrate, then take a look at some tasks that you need to consider.

You are most likely familiar with descriptive terms for software like CRM and ERP. These terms have been used for years to describe software that businesses run to manage customer information, accounts, inventory, etc. Its time to learn a new term; Intelligent Business Applications. Microsoft is leading this charge with the release of their Dynamics 365 platform which combines traditional CRM and ERP functionality as well as some new tools to help bind functionality together in end-to-end workflows.
In this blog, I’m going to cover Dynamics 365 pricing and licensing for the Dynamics 365 Enterprise Edition.

One of the nice things about Microsoft Dynamics CRM’s roll-up fields is the ability to capture the latest date of related underlying records. In the past, we were able to create a Date field in the Contact entity and populate it with the Last Activity Date. Previously, you could only find Activities that were related to the Contact via the Regarding (regardingobjectid) field. However, with new versions of MSCRM come updated capabilities.
