Leo Came in with a Roar!

Microsoft called it the Spring Wave but I think Spring Tidal Wave is more appropriate.  Since I’ve been working with Dynamics CRM, I can honestly say I’ve never seen a Service Release this significant.  The feature set and services delivered are both deep and wide.  If this is any indication as to what we can expect going forward, I don’t know about you, but I’m all In!

So where does one begin?  We’ve already seen blog articles popping up that provide an overview of the new features and products, deep dives into specific features and everything in between.  The nice thing is that there is so much fodder in this release that it could and most likely will take several months for the community to digest it.

I thought the best initial contribution I could make is to build out a Curah with links to helpful resources for Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2013 SP1 so that is exactly what I did.  Check it out when you have some time and let me know if you have a favorite link you would like added.  I’ll be sure to give you a mention for your contribution.

Now its back to work finding more resources and learning about all the new features and services.

I came across this series of Microsoft Dynamics CRM December 2012 Service Update videos today.  They include a variety of information regarding the new Polaris release.  Some of the content is directed at developers, customizers and end users. 

Here is the list:

The information presented will help individuals more quickly become familiar and ramp up on the new features.  Nice work Microsoft, we appreciate that you’ve made this content available.  Very helpful, keep up the great work!


Microsoft Dynamics CRM Q2 2012 Service Update

As most know, the Q2 Service Release for Microsoft Dynamics CRM is coming with some exciting new features to include enhanced social capability, cross browser support, solution templates, mobility, enhanced BI & Analytics and more. 

Previously we’ve had access only to blogs, release guides and articles but today that changes with the “What’s New Video” from Microsoft’s Senior Product Manager, Reuben Krippner, Twitter @reubenk.

This is a quick 45 minute video but provides a nice overview of the new feature set you can expect.
