Our recommendations include building out extensive ERP integrations via certified middleware including MS E-connect and Scribe, migrating Dynamics CRM to the cloud, and also introducing a responsive, browser-based custom .NET portal.

The proposed data warehouse environment will be supported by new transactional databases and SSRS reporting systems.
