Microsoft have revealed that as of July 13th 2021 they will no longer be supporting Dynamics CRM 2011 versions. Put simply, this means that they won’t be providing any additional updates or patches for Dynamics CRM 2011 users.
Therefore, if your business is using Dynamics CRM 2011 you will need to consider upgrading your Dynamics CRM solution asap.
It is important to note that even though Microsoft officially ended mainstream support for Dynamics CRM 2011 back in July 2016, this wasn’t the case for extended support. As Microsoft had to continue to provide updates and patches for at least another 5 years as per their support lifecycle. However, this will be completely stopped in July this year.
When July 2021 comes around you will find that your business may become exposed if any holes/vulnerabilities are discovered as Microsoft won’t be providing any additional patches to resolve these issues so essentially you would be continuing to use this system at your own risk.
However, if your business is unable to upgrade at this stage for whatever reason or your existing Dynamics CRM partner is unable to continue supporting you then this is where Advantage can help you.
We are currently allowing you to come and try out our Dynamics Support for FREE first then after this we can help guide you through the process of moving your Dynamics CRM support over to us.
Encouraged to upgrade
Given that extended support for Dynamics CRM 2011 is ending this year should mean that we see an increase in upgrades to newer versions of Dynamics CRM as those 2011 users will need to upgrade their existing systems or continue to use their existing system at their own risk.
Furthermore, it is important to note that the extended support for Dynamics CRM 2013 will be the next on the chopping block as that will end in 2023.
If your business is looking to upgrade your existing Dynamics CRM system or looking to move your Dynamics CRM support over to Advantage then please get in touch with one of our team of CRM experts today to discuss your specific business requirements.
