The CRM E2 team is pleased to announce the release of two complementary documents, a white paper and a build guide, related to Sharing Data across Microsoft Dynamics CRM Deployments.
- The white paper provides an overview of the levels of integration available for sharing data across multiple Dynamics CRM organizations, together with details about the techniques that are used for integration at the Application and Data levels, which include Web Services, Web Services-based solutions, Filtered Views, and SQL Server Replication.
- The build guide explains how to configure the Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0 April 2009 VPC base image to enable data sharing between a Publisher organization and multiple Subscriber organizations. The configuration demonstrates how to use Microsoft Dynamics CRM to maintain referential integrity between multiple organizations by leveraging Microsoft SQL Server 2008 transactional replication.
