[Applies to: Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0]

Book excerpt: Developer and Team Workspace

Leverage Microsoft Dynamics CRM as an application development platform to build solutions that go beyond what you think of as "Just CRM." The book, CRM as a Rapid Development Platform, shows how Microsoft Dynamics CRM's declarative data modeling, security model, dynamic SOA Web Service creation, and other platform services make it a fast and easy platform for development. Microsoft Dynamics CRM uses popular developer technologies like Microsoft SQL Server, Microsoft SQL Server Reporting Services, and Windows Workflow Foundation for process automation. See how you can build your applications on top of it, integrate with it, or simply extend it using ASP.NET, Windows SharePoint Services, Silverlight, Virtual Earth, Custom Workflow Activities, Windows Mobile and more. The sample chapter, "Developer and Team Workspace," explores how developers can set up their development environments to maximize their productivity building applications. Included in this chapter are discussions on team development.
