Attended Dutch Pizza session @ MS Netherlands

Yesterday, I attended a nice "Pizza Session" about the new SharePoint 2010 & Dynamics CRM 4.0 integration, or now we should call it Dynamics xRM. The speakers did include Bart-Jan Bosch (Solution Specialist Business Productivity @ MS Netherlands) & Ronald Lemmen (Dutch CRM MVP)

The session did came at the right time, due to the fact my current project also involves both products :-)

The session address new features in SPS 2010 and some nice features that user can have just by using their browser. Of course the interesting part was about integrating them together and which technology you could or should use and even better when do you choose one of the platforms. In the session three major approaches/platforms were compared: SharePoint, Dynamics xRM and custom .NET development.

Especially for migration & integrating some interesting choices were presented like when to use custom .NET application, BizTalk, SSIS or K2 BlackPearl. Nevertheless nice things to think about and certainly SSIS and K2 BlackPearl got my attention, so think some post will follow :)

Happy integration :)
