CRM 2011: Update Rollup 12 Vs Polaris (On Prem vs Online)

There has been a lot of confusion on what is available in the UR12 / December 2012 AKA Polaris Release.

The first thing to understand is that the new Process Flow UI is only in Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online. The cross browser functionality is available with both Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 On Premise and Online Releases, along with some nice SDK updates like the Bulk API allowing for faster data imports via the web services, the enable multiple requests allowing for requests to be batched up versus calling for authentication on each one, just to name a few – Partial list below:

•Updated User Experience FLOW UI (CRM Online Only)
•Bing Maps Built In Integration
•Activity Feed Enhancements – Like/Unlike
•HTC Support in CRM Forms (HTML Components)
•Extended or Cross Browser Support
•Yammer & Skype Integration
•Bulk Data Load – ExecuteMultipleRequest (Scribe integrations)
•New Attributes for Lead, Opportunity, Case – Internal use only
•Custom Workflow Activities for CRM Online
•Developer Toolkit Support for Visual Studio 2012
•Improvements to FetchXML (additional statements SQL Like)
•Bulk Data Load – ExecuteMultipleRequest (Scribe integrations)
•New Complex Control Entity – internal use for product updates
•New FormXML Properties – sub grid inline editing controls
•Side by Side – Outlook Forms
