Microsoft (News - Alert) has released a new version of Microsoft Dynamics CRM, formerly code-named “Titan.” The new version of CRM is offered under two names, i.e., Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0 for on-premise and partner-hosted deployments and Microsoft Dynamics CRM Live for Microsoft-hosted deployment. With Microsoft Dynamics CRM, customers can choose the right deployment model for their specific business and IT needs as the new version is designed with a single unified-code base for both on-premise and on-demand deployments. If the needs of the customer change, the CRM offers the flexibility to change deployment models.
 
The new version of Microsoft CRM includes many new features or benefits such as new business intelligence capabilities including cross-entity views and an end-user ad hoc reporting wizard, new collaboration capabilities with Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 including real-time presence indicators within the CRM application, an advanced multi-tenant architecture that supports multiple customers per server, advanced business process automation based on Microsoft Windows Workflow Foundation and extended global capabilities including user choice of more than 25 languages and pervasive support for multiple currencies.
 
Brad Wilson, general manager of Microsoft Dynamics CRM at Microsoft, said in a company press release, “Microsoft Dynamics CRM is making the power of choice a reality for businesses around the world. This new release further enables us to deliver on Microsoft’s software plus services strategy and provide our CRM solutions with a great user experience and exceptional business value.”
 
Available in more than 25 languages all over the world, the English language pack of Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0 will be available within the next seven days to new and existing partners and customers. Existing customers who have an active Software Assurance plan for Microsoft Dynamics CRM can get the new release at no additional charge. The new Microsoft Dynamics Live CRM service is currently available to a limited number of customers via the Early Access program only in United States and Canada.
