Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 Implementation Guide and Microsoft Dynamics CRM Planning Tools
xRM is pleased to provide the Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 Implementation Guide and Microsoft Dynamics CRM Planning Tools to our customers planning for CRM 2011, either as a first-time implementation or as an upgrade from CRM 4.0. These are available in two zip files, detailed below.
The Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 Implementation Guide (IG) contains three guides from Microsoft individually covering the Planning, Installation, and Operating phases of a Dynamics CRM 2011 implementation using the partner-hosted or on-premise deployment model (not CRM Online). The three guides are available either combined into a single Compiled HTML Help file (.chm), or as stand-alone Microsoft Office Word documents. The zip file therefore contains four files.
