SPUG OC Members? (Totally CRMUG related)

    Hi there!

    So, I noticed there is a meeting next week for the local SharePoint User Group and I was wondering if any one from this group is a part of that?

    We've recently integrated SharePoint with our CRM tenant but I'm positive we're only capitalizing on a very small part of that relationship.  If you're a part of that other user group, do you know if they spend much time on integration with other MS products?

    That brings me to my last question:

    If you've integrated CRM with SharePoint, what are some of the cool things you're able to do that you couldn't do with just CRM?

    Thanks!

    Ok, so...the meeting was last night and proved to be very interesting and informative.

    The demographic was different from our group with much of the attendance working as consultants in one form or another for SharePoint and its associated programs.  There were some partners, as well, and I think I counted about 20 folks altogether.

    After the usual introductions, one of the partners went through a detailed "sharing session" that seemed to focus on SQL database health and performance.  I've been out of SQL since the version 6.5 days, so much of the talk soared above me but I did pick out some good links which I will share with you all once I get them from the presenter.

    The group was very open to discussing SP's integration with CRM, and "on-prem vs. cloud" was a significant challenge for many of them, as well...so there are more than a couple of similarities.

    Overall, I think the group is a good resource and when we want to cover SharePoint's interaction with CRM, we can certainly lean on them for content.

    Let me know if you have any questions.

    Thanks!

    Ed, 

    Glad you attended, sorry I couldn't make it. Sounds like it was useful- will get with you to see what meaty tidbits you gleaned from it!

    Cheers,
