Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0* upgrade plans for Increase CRM hosted customers

We're really proud that The MOLE Clinic and Silvelox UK have been selected by Microsoft as members of the partner-hosted Titan Customer Showcase program. There are only 8 organisations worldwide on this program (96 if you include the on-premise and CRM Live showcase customers), and we're really exited that The MOLE Clinic and Silvelox will be testing Titan with us.

So far, here's how our plans look:
  • late September 2007 - Microsoft release Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0 Community Technology Preview 3.0 (complete)
  • late September 2007 - build Titan test infrastructure and install CRM CTP3 (complete)
  • early October 2007 - test Increase's internal Microsoft CRM system on CRM CTP3 (on-going)
  • early November 2007 - Microsoft release Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0 Release Candidate 0
  • early November 2007 - test The MOLE Clinic and Silvelox's Microsoft CRM systems on CRM 4.0 RC0
  • mid November 2007 - migrate The MOLE Clinic and Silvelox's live CRM systems to CRM 4.0 RC0
  • late November 2007 - test all Increase hosted customers' CRM systems on CRM 4.0 RC0
  • end 2007 - Microsoft release Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0 release to web
  • early 2008 - migrate all Increase hosted customers to CRM 4.0
If you'd like to see a demonstration of Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0 or you're an Increase customer with questions about our Titan migration plans, please contact your account manager.

* Funny thing is, I don't think Microsoft has confirmed that the next version of Microsoft Dynamics CRM will be called Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0. Right now, it's still codenamed "Titan". (Unless, that is, you're writing a book about it.)
