Microsoft Dynamics 365: On-Premise to Cloud Migration
Convincing clients to move to the Cloud is not an easy task – especially if these clients have invested substantial money to have the best Dynamics 365 On-premise solution and have no interest in spending more money to run their apps and data. This resistance can be further exacerbated by other concerns like saving important data in the “mysterious Cloud” and uncertainty around the long-term benefits. However, when it comes to their need to support business growth and easily make business systems available to employees across a broader geographical base, the On-Premise model can prove expensive and complex to scale.
Some clients may not be familiar with cloud technology and hence, it is important to explain what cloud technology is and what it can do for their business. Clearly outlining the capabilities of the two versions can reinforce the advantage of switching to the Cloud. But more importantly, you need to understand each client, their individual concerns and needs before positioning cloud services as the solution.
- Local Operations and Connectivity
- Limited data Storage
- Local Securtity
- Limited capability / outdated techonlogy
- Local support
- Remote access
- Scalability and Flexibility
- Highly-secure, sate-of-the-art data centers owned and managed by Microsoft
- Intelligence and Analytics
- Modern features and 24/7 global support
The Dynamics 365 On-premise version is more suitable for companies operating where the majority of their production occurs in a confined location i.e. Manufacturing.
Comparatively, the Cloud version gives companies a 360-degree view of their business – regardless of the industry or sector they work in. It provides team members the ability to access data from familiar solutions like Microsoft Office 365 and Microsoft Power BI.
