Microsoft Dynamics ERP and Microsoft Dynamics CRM Announces Certification for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2
We are very pleased to announce that all of our Microsoft Dynamics ERP and Microsoft Dynamics CRM products will be certified to run on Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 when these become available on October 22nd, 2009. (Microsoft)
Over the past few months, our R&D teams have conducted extensive testing of the current versions of Microsoft Dynamics AX, Microsoft Dynamics CRM, Microsoft Dynamics GP, Microsoft Dynamics NAV and Microsoft Dynamics SL on Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2. As a result of these tests, we are confident that our customers will be able to deploy the latest version of Microsoft’s desktop and datacenter operating systems alongside their Microsoft Dynamics ERP and CRM solutions, and enjoy all the advantages that this will bring to their business, including:
Saving money through server consolidation. By running Microsoft Dynamics applications virtually with Hyper-V, our customers can maximize the utilization of the underlying physical servers, reducing their data center footprint along with costs of sourcing, purchasing, and maintaining server hardware.
Easier, quicker access to information. The improved taskbar and other innovative desktop management features in Windows 7 make finding and interacting with business information easier than ever. We are currently looking into other ways we can optimize the desktop experience with Windows 7 for the next release of our products, by integrating with features such as Jump Lists and Federated Search.
Interacting with Information in New Ways. We’re excited by the possibilities that the Windows Touch feature enables in Windows 7, supporting multifinger manipulation of programs displayed on a touch-screen computer. This capability opens up interesting new role-based scenarios that the Microsoft Dynamics research and development team is already exploring.
The Microsoft Dynamics CRM team is also hard at work with the Exchange team on certifying Exchange 2010, and are looking to certify later this year.
