A great challenge for our age is to keep pace with the rapidly changing market. To meet this challenge, companies need tools that give them the power and flexibility to adjust their business to meet new opportunities. New and enhanced tools for developers in Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0 help companies create next-generation CRM solutionsquickly to meet the changing needs of business.

CRM METADATA APPLICATION PROGRAMMING INTERFACE Take advantage of expanded metadata within CRM

The Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0 metadata application programming interface (API) has been expanded to make it easier for developers to create flexible custom solutions and to enhance integration capabilities. Developers can now create, read, update, and delete metadata on the fly and create custom entities, attributes, and relationships programmatically. The Microsoft Dynamics CRM 3.0 Metadata API is still available to support backward compatibility. Now it is easier than ever to have a CRM systemthat is tailored to meet specific business needs with the flexibility to change and expand as the business does.


Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0 offers a consistent user experience whether working online or offline, including the ability to take reports, workflows, and other custom functionality offl ine. A new offl ine software development kit (SDK) helps developers create solutions that provide functionality even when a connection to the server is not available.

CRM EVENT FRAMEWORK PLUG-INS Extend the capabilities of your CRM system solution.

A new event framework in Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0 makes it easier to extend the capabilities of Microsoft Dynamics CRM with custom code components, called plug-ins, that are dynamically registered and run inside the CRM application. Close integration between custom code and the CRM application makes it easier for developers to create streamlined solutions quickly. Plug-inscan also be configured to execute while working offline, making it easier to provide customizations that benefit both online and offline users.
