Introducing the Microsoft Dynamics Marketplace

imageOur partners do a great job of writing compelling solutions that integrate with our Dynamics products. In this Channel 9 video I talked with Dan Bien, a program manager in our Dynamics CRM product team about Microsoft's plans for a new marketplace focused on our Microsoft Dynamics products starting with Dynamics CRM.

Girish Raja sez,

“The marketplace will allow customers to quickly search, discover and apply industry-specific applications and solution extensions from Microsoft and its partners to help them accelerate and extend their CRM and ERP implementations. Essentially it is a win-win for both partners and customers. Microsoft Dynamics Marketplace will be integrated within Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011, allowing customers to search for applications directly from within their CRM solution.

The Microsoft Dynamics Marketplace is powered by Microsoft Pinpoint. This Dynamics-specific marketplace leverages the capabilities of the Pinpoint platform to deliver a relevant and easy-to-use experience to Dynamics partners and customers direct through the web or, in the case of Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online and Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011, embedded within the solution.

Initially, it will be a searchable repository of downloadable custom solutions and extensions to help accelerate and/or extend the value of Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online and on-premises deployments. Publishers of solutions can get also more detailed web analytical information about their listings. In the future, Marketplace will provide e-commerce and offer financial transaction capabilities for Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online and on-premise, as well as Microsoft Dynamics ERP solutions.”

    Could you please clarify how user will purchase application from marketplace? Is it MS payment system or user will just redirect to site of owner the application and will purchase it there?

    Is there will be any statistic how much users use trial version of application from marketplace, how much users have purchased our product through Marketplace, etc.?
