Microsoft CRM 3.0 is Complete

News from various sources (now including Microsoft) is that Microsoft CRM 3.0 was released to manufacture (which means existing customers will be able to upgrade very soon) yesterday and that it will be generally available to new customers from 1st December.
This has not been publicised as there is no software to download yet so don’t start asking your MS reps and resellers for a week or so.
Ronald Lemmen has some more news
But how could Microsoft go from beta to RTM in a week? Brad Wilson (GM, Microsoft CRM Business) answers:
Last week we announced the third drop of our Early Access program for Microsoft CRM 3.0. We released our TAP2 build in July, our TAP3 build in early October on our field readiness tour, and our RC2 build last week. This last pre-release drop was picked up by the press as our “beta”, despite the fact that it wasn’t a “beta” in the traditional sense.
We’ve now received the great news that our development team has over-delivered on their commitments by shipping CRM 3.0 early. We simply need to ensure that people understand what our Early Access program was about, and to stress the fact that we’re giving the people what they want (a production-ready version of CRM 3.0) sooner

    Are there any books being published for entry level guys who want to develop skills on Microsoft CRM 3.0

  2. Julian says:

    Microsoft have CRM courses available to partners. Look at and search on Microsoft CRM. There are no third party books being published. CRM 3.0 is such a big subject that there will be around 8 separate Microsoft courses available early in 2006, so a book that covers all aspects would be too big.
