Many companies considering Microsoft Dynamics CRM are weighing the options of installing Dynamics CRM On Premises or going with CRM Online. In this post we compare the two platforms, look at what is similar, and compare the differences.
Core Application Functionality
The core application functionality is at parity, with the same core application entities and extensibility features.
Customizations developed in a supported way for CRM on premise can be moved to CRM Online (and vice versa), and plugins, workflows and any custom extension can be used in either Online or On Premises deployments. Any supported code will work in both CRM online and On Premises.
CRM clients for phone, tablet, and Outlook (including offline) work exactly the same between CRM Online and CRM On Premises.
