One of the challenges of many organizations is the ability to migrate data from one CRM Organization to another. This challenge occurs when working in a hybrid environment or when trying to update development, test and production environments.
On 10/23, Microsoft Dynamics Labs released the new Microsoft Dynamics CRM Instance Adapter. This adapter is an additional adapter for use with the Connector for Microsoft Dynamics, which allows synchronization of data between two Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 Organizations.
The adapter supports communication between two endpoints that exist on any authentication/hosting environment (on-premise, online, IFD, etc.) This means that you can leverage this new adapter to move Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 data between test and production servers or from on-premises to the cloud.
Connector for Microsoft Dynamics is a Microsoft Dynamics-specific and Microsoft supported integration tool that is available to you at no additional cost as an existing Microsoft Dynamics Customer. As with any integration project, using Connector for Microsoft Dynamics might require additional assistance from your partner or IT staff in order to ensure that the proper up-front planning is done to guarantee success with your project.
