The new bulk API in Polaris/UR12

If you haven’t heard, CRM Online has completed the Polaris rollout and UR12 is available.  With it comes a new bulk API which makes programmatic data import into Dynamics CRM 2011 faster.  Check out Sonoma Partners blog post on a simple benchmark of the improvements.  As you can see, it’s really worth moving to this new API.  What?  You don’t do data migration in code:)?  You use a third party tool like the CozyRoc and KingswaySoft SSIS adapters or Scribe?  The good news is that both CozyRoc and KingswaySoft have already updated their adapters to support this new API.  I’ve also updated my Improving the performance of multiple Inserts, Updates, and Deletes via the CRM 2011 Organization Service post to suggest how one can combine bulk with parallelism to achieve even better performance.  In fact, if you review my Data Migration with CRM 2011 post, you’ll recognize that the Balanced Data Distributor (BDD) is an addon to SQL SSIS which enables parallelism within your SSIS package.
