One can imagine many scenarios where Dynamics CRM either publishes data to BizTalk Server or queries BizTalk-exposed service endpoints. For instance, when a customer requests a refund for a defective product, the call center agent may record this request in Dynamics CRM. After the phone call is over, Dynamics CRM should send a message to a returns processing system which handles the crediting of a customer's account. In another scenario, BizTalk Server may be the host of a data aggregation service which queries three enterprise systems that store "customer" data and aggregates the responses. Dynamics CRM may want to execute that service when a call center agent views a customer record so that they get a fuller picture of that customer's interactions with the company.
