October 1, 2013 Leave a comment

Much to my surprise today when i was setting up a CRM Online trial for my testing purposes, i was excited to see that my CRM was the new CRM 2013. Surprised smile

There was no official information yet but i learned that the roll out has just started for the APAC region from the CRM community blog,

https://community.dynamics.com/crm/b/edwardsdnadynamicscrm/archive/2013/09/30/dynamics-crm-2013-has-arrived.aspx#.Ukp-KIbI3iM

Now it is more evident that the update will follow for the rest of the regions in the coming days. I appreciate Microsoft’s commitment in making it available to the general public.

Thanks,

Edwin

CRM 2013 RC1 – Release Candidate 1 is RELEASED

September 17, 2013 Leave a comment

We all know that CRM 2013 BETA was made available for the partners on the Microsoft Connect website. But now that the CRM 2013 RC1 – Release Candidate 1 is also released on the same Microsoft Connect website, this means that the product has evolved from beta version to a even more finished product (Just miles away from the official release)

Partners & Customers are invited to sign the licence agreement before getting access to the download files for CRM 2013.

Hoping that this will bring us a great experience with CRM 2013 before its fully official release.

Cheers,

Edwin
