Release Notes

This is release 2 of 3 for the Analytics Accelerator for Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0. This release incorporates some bug fixes to the existing dashboards for SQL Server 2005. It also introduces a set of dashboards for SQL Server 2008.

The following future releases are going through final testing and packaging and will be available soon:
  • R3 delivers more advanced SQL Server Analysis Services (SSAS) capabilities as well as Microsoft Office PerformancePoint Server scorecards

Many customers and partners will be familiar with Analytics Foundation for Microsoft Dynamics CRM 3.0 which was a business intelligence feature pack for Microsoft Dynamics CRM 3.0. Analytics Foundation for Dynamics CRM 3.0 included Dashboards, Key Performance Indicators (KPI’s) and a suite of new reports. Analytics Accelerator for Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0 (R2) expands on this, and is designed to support a range of business intelligence “maturity” levels for customers and partners. The Analytics accelerator has been built to cater for differing business intelligence skill-sets and experience levels.

MS Small Business Server 2008, second server MS Server 2008, MS SQL 2008, Dynamics Workgroup 4 - failed to deploy 32 errors. Yet CRM for workgroups 4 functions perfectly on SBS 2008. Nevertheless I would very like to deploy.

FINALLY the SQL 2005 fix is available. However finally did this is my hero... just wish we didn't have to wait 3 months for it.

Reports for SQL 2005 don't work. Trending reports documented to be included are not, in fact emtpy folders in the SSIS section. This release was very poor, does not function as advertised!

C'mon, people. 2005 schemas, please. Not all of us have the luxury of upgrading yet...

Same as everyone else - 2005 does not work!!!

I could not use it for SQL 2005 because the schemas are for 2008!!!!

I cannot install the reports for SQL 2005. I get a CRM error every time I go to save the reports. However, with R1, I had no issue.

Have errors in 2005 version

Apparently the reports for SQL 2005 are in 2008 format. This is not good.

I have tried too and this Accelerator doesnt work with SQL 2005. Has anybody an idea? cheers, medeniz
by medeniz on Jul 8, 2009 at 1:07 PM
I do have the same problem as alexOne. I think the reason is that the reports in the 2005-directory have also been created in a SQL2008-Environment and therefore cannot run on SQL2005.

Doesnt work with MS SQL SERVER 2005. In *all* .rdl files, this is the scheme: xmlns=""
by alexOne on Jun 30, 2009 at 10:32 PM
The documentation to install was excellent. The reports that are there are good. I liked the simple cube. But more would be great.

Some good concepts here - usable, meaningful reports. There's not a hell of lot of them though so far, and the Analysis Services cube is good, but quite small (so far) compared to Analytics Foundation for CRM 3.0 Will be looking forward to the next couple of releases.
