CRM Customers and Partners:

As I mentioned in my last post, the Microsoft CRM Sustained Engineering Team plans to release Update Rollup 1, targeted at all customers using Microsoft CRM v3.0. If you’ve already heard from me, you can ignore this blog post – you’ve worked with me in the past and are aware of this pre-release “External Beta” testing program for the latest Update Rollup. 

However, if you haven’t heard from me already, I’d like to extend an invitation to discuss your possible inclusion in this testing program.   This Rollup will include Hotfixes and Updates released to date that enhance Microsoft CRM v3.0 usability and performance. Please note, we have quite a few participants that cover most “standard” implementations and topologies CRM Customers and Partners use, but I’d be particularly interested in hearing from you if you feel your deployment is very unique, including things like:

  • Very extensive customizations in general, including but not limited to SDK applications you or your Partner may have developed
  • Sophisticated workflows
  • Extensive integration with other applications within your organization (including, but not limited to, ERP solutions such as Great Plains)
  • Extensive use of ISV add-ons
  • WAN/Global deployments
  • Complex organizational structures
  • Very large data sets, inc. use of data warehousing
  • Anything else that might be considered “out of the ordinary”

If you’re interested in more information regarding Microsoft CRM v3.0 Update Rollup 1 Pre-Release testing, please contact me directly at  And thanks in advance for your consideration!
