One of the most unusual aspects of our IPM development is the componentised approach provided by the Dynamics environment. We find we can develop sophisticated new functionality without risking our existing components because every document stands alone. This is one of the most difficult adjustments I have had to make as the architect of our product set. Each time we add a new feature the approach to QA is completely different to development work we were doing 10 years ago. In those days, a change in one part of the application could easily impact a number of different parts of the application. In the Microsoft Dynamics xRM environment, this is not the case.
