Friday, August 18, 2017 @ 12:00 PM EDT


Join us to learn how Virtual Entities offer an important new way to satisfy Microsoft Dynamics 365/CRM integration requirements. Unlike traditional approaches like data synchronization engines, client side data loading, or custom plugins, Virtual Entities allow us to display and maintain OData-available external data within Dynamics 365's interface.

In this session we will:

  • Explain the basics of the Virtual Entity model
  • Look at integration scenarios that could benefit from this model
  • Discuss the benefits and risks of Virtual Entities in comparison to traditional techniques.
