Microsoft has released a great new tool that will allow you to easily synchronize data between multiple Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 organizations.  The tool is called the Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 Instance Adapter.  It works for IFD, Online, AD, any CRM 2011 environment and should be a great tool for refreshing data from prod to dev, or any other synchronization scenario.

Since it's free, this can save you a lot of time and money and can be a real life saver if you don't have budget for a beefier tool like Scribe.
