Blendtec approached CloudFronts with the below challenges –
- The client experienced frequent problems pertaining to CRP environment connectivity between Dynamics CRM and AX.
- They demanded to move all Scribe Insight components from ‘Production’ environment to Conference Room Pilot (CRP) environment.
Along with these, they also seek to update Scribe Insight versions in other sandbox environments.
Syncing customer data between Dynamics CRM and AX platform is a common practice among companies using Microsoft Dynamics 365. The client already was using Dynamics CRM and AX when they started to experience connectivity problems. The CloudFronts technical team restored the connectivity issues between the two platforms using the right tools.
The team also moved all Scribe Insight components from ‘Production’ environment to Conference Room Pilot (CRP) environment.
Upgrades generally contain enhancements to previous versions in terms of new features, capabilities, design, UI and are mostly requirement driven. They are also important to keep systems updated with new technology and provide interoperability with other systems. Further, in some cases, upgrades are made mandatory as software vendor may also decide to discontinue support for the existing/older versions. Hence, in this case, CloudFronts team updated Scribe Insight versions in other Sandbox environments.
