If you have been reading my posts, then you know that I sprinkle a lot of personal speculation on top of known facts. I am really just sharing with you my own thoughts, as I seek to also figure things out. Every now and then, somebody at Microsoft will reach out to me with a chuckle, and attempt to nudge me back onto the actual path.
I have some additional information I have learned, that as a CRM Partner, was worrying me about this whole Dynamics 365 switcheroo. Nothing confidential here, just clarification of things I have been concerned about, and so assume you have been also. I think what has driven a lot of the fears of partners like myself was not the changes, or even the perceived depth of change, but rather, the abruptness of it. On November 1, CRMOL ceases to exist and Dynamics 365 takes over. For those of us who have built either a practice, or an ISV solution on CRMOL, that sounded pretty damn scary.
Microsoft has been highly focused on the high-level virtues of Dynamics 365, preparing partners for the upcoming sales conversations. I know I am not the only partner who keeps saying “yeah but”, and frankly many of those talking about the new sales motions, just did not know the answers to many of the questions you and I had. It’s almost like, the people with the answers to some fairly basic questions, were standing behind those out front talking, and rolling their eyes at me. Well, I guess they finally got sick of it, and decided to give me a few answers, probably just to shut me up about it. It’s not that I have been a complete “Chicken Little”, I never said the sky was falling, and I am happy to report, that if definitely is not.
If I missed anything you are concerned about, let me know and I’ll see if I can get an answer.
