Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0 Ships!

As officially reported by here.

"Microsoft announced Monday that it has released to manufacturing the long-awaited update to its Dynamics-branded customer relationship management software (CRM).

Previously codenamed "Titan," the latest version of Microsoft Dynamics CRM actually has two names in its final form. For on-premise, customer-hosted, as well as partner-hosted deployments, the product has been dubbed Dynamics CRM 4.0. The company will also be offering the package on-demand in a Microsoft-hosted environment that it has named Dynamics CRM Live.

Existing and new customers will be able to download the update when it's released on the Web this week, a Microsoft official told The Microsoft-hosted version, however, continues to run under the early access program that the company began in September.

Microsoft plans to take that version live during the first half of 2008, said Brad Wilson, general manager of Microsoft Dynamics CRM. "[In the meantime,] more than 100 customers are using [CRM Live] at this point," Wilson added. "

So as award winning CRM blogger Philip Richardson notes, the Titan codename is replaced by the product name. Party time!  :o)
