ADX portals were once relied upon to connect seamless web interfaces with Dynamics CRM. But here’s the thing: Times and technology have changed. As you already know, Microsoft ended support of the ADX portal quite a while ago. If you still cling to it, you are just clinging to the past, stopping your business from a world of innovation and security that could take your company to the next level.

Now, I know what you might be thinking. “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it,” right? But what if I were to tell you that by sticking to an unsupported portal, you are possibly leaving your gates wide open for security risks, missing out on amazing new features, and letting efficiency gains pass you by.

So, what now? You’ve invested time, resources, and a chunk of your digital heart into your ADX portal, and switching might seem daunting. Fear not! We are here to guide you with better alternatives that would make your life much easier.

The Legacy of ADX Portal

A few years back, the ADX Portal stood between Microsoft Dynamics CRM and the outside world (customers, partners, vendors, etc.). They were the magical doors through which a business would connect its CRM systems to provide a customizable, user-friendly interface for customers, partners, and employees.

The ADX portal extended the organization’s CRM capabilities onto the web. The ADX portals featured support for content management, membership services, and even e-commerce functionalities, and it was a leap and a bound for just how businesses were to interact with their stakeholder base online.

It was easy to manage web content and portal services directly from within Dynamics CRM with ADX. This empowerment led to an era where customer engagement and self-service portals flourished. Businesses were able to connect with the customers better than ever.

However, the discontinuation of support by Microsoft marked the end of an era but also the beginning of a new chapter. While the legacy of ADX portals will always hold a special place in the heart of the Dynamics community, the future signals new opportunities and innovations waiting to be discovered.

CRMJetty Dynamics Portal

While Power Pages offers a commendable approach to web portal creation, CRMJetty Dynamics 365 Portal goes several steps further, providing a sophisticated, highly customizable solution that truly stands in a class of its own.

1. Customization at Its Core

This level of customization ensures that every interaction, every interface, reflects your way of doing business, offering an unmatched user experience that might be hard to accomplish with Power Pages.
