Cloud deployment Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations is fully managed by Microsoft. Your data is stored and protected on Microsoft’s secure servers and accessed through the web. Responsibility for deploying, actively monitoring, and servicing is covered through Microsoft’s SLA and includes high availability and disaster recovery. With server and infrastructure management managed by Microsoft, you are freed up to focus on your business.
No Further Commitment
The cloud solution can be implemented quickly without needing to dedicate in-house IT resources. Scaling up or down is as easy as adding or removing users. With infrastructure, computing, and database services included in a single offering you avoid hardware expense and the overhead of maintaining a dedicated server. A predictable monthly subscription means no upfront license costs or recurring renewal expenses which only adds to the ease and value of a cloud service solution.
The cloud service provides customers with the greatest value, the broadest range of functionality, the best application lifecycle experience, the easiest and broadest integration with Microsoft Azure services, the best option for business insights and intelligence, and the most value for customers’ technology investments.
For some organisations, poor internet infrastructure, security concerns, regulatory requirements or organisational preference, make a cloud based solution unsuitable. For those organisations, we provide an on-premise solution for deploying and managing Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations.
Full Control on IT Investment
An on-premise solution allows organisations to maintain full control over their data while also taking advantige of current IT investments. Data is stored on local harware, or a partner's data centre, with maintainence and security to be handled by your organisation's, or your partner's IT personnel.
Though some connectivity to the cloud is required for system management and updates through Microsoft Dynamics Lifecycle Services (LCS), this solution can be the right one for organsations that must adhere to strict privacy and security regulations.
While most fucntionalty is the same between a cloud based solution and on-premise, Advanced Analysitcs and Azure Machine Learning services are only avaliable with the cloud based solution.
