We are planning to roll out an update for Dynamics 2016 soon and I couldn't find any documentation indicating that the Marketo connector could handle an on premise version after 2015. Does anyone know if there are any issues with rolling out Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2016 yet?
I had an issue related to the Marketo Sync User come up with a Dynamics 2016 instance today and reached out to Marketo. I got some mixed signals where I was told by support that DCRM 2016 is not yet supported. I then asked a product management resource from Marketo to validate what I was told then assured me that DCRM 2016 is supported (when using the MLM 188.8.131.52 solution pack for Dynamics).
As I continue to complete this implementation of MKTO and DCRM 2016 I will let you know my findings!
My information is that 2016 is supported for Dynamics Online but not yet for On Premise. On Premise support will likely be out in the next release in May.
Good morning Chris Thomas!
Not sure if you have completed your upgrade yet but I wanted to let you know that while @ Summit I met with Ajay Awatramani who owns the connector for Dynamics. The latest version you can download from Marketo is DCRM 2016 ready. Looking ahead to the next release of the connector in June Marketo will begin migrating existing customers running Dynamics and Marketo onto the new "Orion" platform of Marketo running a new connector. The new connector is much faster than the existing one and will be reverse compatible with older versions of Dynamics.
Other news for Dynamics/Marketo users is that we are setting up a virtual users group - stay tuned for an announcement from Liz Courter on that soon!
We're in the process of installing and configuring MSI in MS Dynamics 2016. Does anyone have experience with this?
Yes. It works the same as previous versions and there are instructions on the docs site. If you have specific questions, I'd be happy to help.
