Microsoft Dynamics CRM in the Market
Implementation Approach & Planning
Microsoft Case Study
No longer targeted to only small and medium size businesses
Gaining market share in larger businesses
Competing with (and winning against) Siebel & SAP
New license sales are likely to be accelerating…more than 140% in 2006.
Garnering interest in deployments of more than 500 seats and, in several cases, more than 1,000 seats.
Implementation partners have been touting test environments that demonstrate Microsoft Dynamics CRM scaling to 2,000 users on a single server.
CRM integration with Microsoft Office Outlook, as implemented by Microsoft Dynamics CRM 3.0, can help increase user adoption rates.

CRM Small Business Edition
Integration is usually a part of the project
Typically longer deployment time frames than smaller businesses
Development of more advanced customizations via SDK
Security model often quite a bit more complex
Plan for a multi-phased implementation
Conference room pilot
Pilot with out of the box configuration
Phase in SDK extensions and integration
Determine which system owns the data
Keep data models in synch where possible
Start early in the project
Always takes longer than you think
Expect issues with data mapping between systems
Don’t underestimate time needed to address concerns from IT
Ensure all corporate guidelines are being addressed
Policies often exist for evaluating packages application in the corporate IT infrastructure
Get IT involved early to avoid surprises late in the project
May need lab deployment to address raised concerns
May need Microsoft Exchange upgrade
Installation of 3rd party software on Microsoft Exchange often prohibited
Consider a dedicated Microsoft Exchange server for Microsoft Dynamics CRM router
Procedures for monitoring the Sink mailbox needed
Who has access?
How often will it be monitored?
Make sure you have an accurate inventory of target machine configurations
Variations in the base configuration can impact ability to install the Microsoft Dynamics CRM Client for Outlook
May need to upgrade desktops/laptops
Plan for software rollout
Automated installation can be difficult
Don’t forget operational support
Documentation and training needed for operations to understand application
Who do users call with problems?
Corporate help desk needs to be aware of the application and know how to handle support calls
Coordination of training for a global deployment can be tricky
Consider options for training
Regional road show
Plan for tailored scalability testing
Analyze transaction mix and usage
Model data volumes
Consider true concurrency
Performed in our lab in Seattle, WA, USA
Sales transaction profile
12 month project data volume
3,000 concurrent users
> 240,000 HTTP Transactions/hour
< ½ second average HTTP response time
Plan for future volume and understand procedures for swapping out hardware
Scale out where possible
Use 64-bit SQL Server 2005
High performance SAN with fast I/O channel
Use a dedicated SQL Reporting Services/Analysis Services environment
