The DATA Act Driving Grant Management Automation

The Digital Accountability and Transparency Act enacted in May 2014 calls for making spending data available in open, standardized formats to be published online.  It is a continuation of transparency initiatives and lessons learned with experiences such as grants.gov, the 2009 economic stimulus under the Recovery Act and the spending site USASpending.gov.

Government grantees will have significant new administrative responsibilities.  Many organizations that were tracking grants in spreadsheets or documents will have to adopt more sophisticated automated grant management systems such as Microsoft Grants Manager to keep up with reporting rules.

For profit companies will lose some privacy as a result of this law.  Grant recipients will be required to disclose information including officer salaries.

Getting the Most from Dynamics CRM Online -- Synchronous v Asynchronous Workflows

This video shows highlights from the InfoStrat March 2015 seminar "Getting the Most Out of Dynamics CRM Online" presented by Dmitri Riz, the leader of the InfoStrat Dynamics CRM practice.  This is the second part of a series of blog posts.  The first is Benefits and Cloud Thinking.



In order to make your CRM workflows perform best, you need to understand the difference between synchronous and asynchronous workflows so you can choose which is appropriate for your applications.



Synchronous workflows are a new feature that was introduced in Dynamics CRM 2013.  Unlike asynchronous workflows which are sent to a queue, synchronous workflows execute in a single transaction.
