Partners Find Strange Bedfellows in Microsoft Dynamics CRM and Office 365

Announced at Microsoft's WorldWide Partner Conference in July, the update makes Dynamics CRM an add-on to Office 365, customers who sign up to use Office 365, can opt to add Dynamics CRM Online on the same bill, on the same provisioning engine.  And while this streamlined ordering and licensing may sound like an improvement in simplicity, partners are finding that selling a bundled solution is not without its own unique challenges.
