Dynamics CRM 2015 was the first online version, and since then we haven’t had a single partner driven way of going to the cloud without using special software like SSIS and Scribe etc.
Good news is that Microsoft is planning to release the LCS tool the fast track team uses for partners later this year 2018. It’s only been more than 3 years with customers waiting for a solution, and Microsoft not understanding why the cloud transition isn’t going faster.
It’s amazing to see how little effort Microsoft is putting into doing this smoother. At the time they finally release the tool, it might be a little to late.
In the meanwhile, you can read my Fast Track hack🙂
