Microsoft has turned the switch on for Dynamics offerings directly from the new Canadian Azure Data Centers.
Today you can get:
- Microsoft Dynamics CRM
- Microsoft “Project Madeira” (Will change name to Dynamics 365 for Business) in a localized Canadian version.
and in September 2016 a preview version of Microsoft Dynamics AX.
Just received this mail outlining the plan for extensions on AppSource:
|Cumulative Update 1.3 for Microsoft Project “Madeira” is coming soon.
|To: <madeira test account>
|We hope you are enjoying your Project “Madeira” experience. As you may have read on our blog, an update is on its way to you. This includes new capabilities in the core application, and it also introduces marketplace support for extensions that was announced earlier today: https://appsource.microsoft.com.We are very excited about this new marketplace, and we hope that you will be as well. But unfortunately you will not be able to get extensions from AppSource just yet. We will let you know when your Project “Madeira” has been updated so you can use AppSource, it will only be a few days.
If you want to see what to look forward to in this update other than support for AppSource, take a look at our What’s New page.
A Madeira account is an Office 365 account, also known as an “work or school account”.
If you are using your Microsoft Account to sign up for Madeira, you are actually adding a “new” Microsoft Account to your email. So the next time you log in with that account, you might be see this:
The top one, is the new “Office 365” account, and the bottom one is your old Microsoft Account. Confusing 🙂
So, if you have an Office 365 subscription, use that account for Madeira, that will give you the option of trying out the Outlook integration pieces and avoid creating another account.
