Microsoft Dynamics CRM December 2012 Service Update to Arrive in January for Most Customers

The Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online Polaris release, a.k.a, the December 2012 Service Update, appears to have shifted its release date from a "mid-December" phased rollout to a start for the general customer base in January 2013. 

While the release for select TAP customers has already begun, the rollout for the rest of the customer base will be starting January 1 in the US, then moving to EMEA and APAC, according to information revealed  to Dynamics partners on PartnerSource, as well as at a Dynamics CRM user group meeting this week. Specifics were also shared via CRM MVP Chris Cognetta's blog.
