Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2013 Realizes the CRM Anywhere Vision
Do you remember working in the late 1990's? I sure do. I was living in California and working for a dotcom darling during the tech boom of Silicon Valley. Going mobile meant having a heavy laptop with a short battery life, an Ethernet dongle with a ten foot, blue cable, and a flip-style "World Phone" that could send SMS messages and get online to check your e-mail.
We were high-speed and it was fun! I could travel, work offline on an airplane then sync when I was back on the ground using the dial-up port on a payphone, hotel room or at the office.
But basically we were tethered to wired access to communicate, meaning if you needed to work on data real-time on a server or input financial data into your customized Lotus Notes-based CRM sales forecast, you were chained to that long, blue cable until the work was done.
