I'm not sure that blog post is very accurate as you don't need a .net CMS to integrate with Dynamics. It used to be the case but isn't anymore. On the integration side if you want to talk to one of our dev people we can explain how we built our Dynamics integration. Regards, Piero From: Mark D. P. Norman Sent: Wednesday 3 October, 15:51 Subject: Re: We're thinking of switching our web CMS To: [log in to unmask] Hi Giulio, By sheer chance I came across this just now https://growcreate.co.uk/blog/which-cms-works-best-with-microsoft-dynamics/ Of course, bear in mind that this is a company which specialises in Umbraco (and Episerver) - as their conclusion seems to be "Umbraco and Episerver" :-) But it may be worth a look.
