Upgrading Microsoft On-Prem ERP/CRM Software to the Cloud

Upgrading Microsoft On-Prem ERP/CRM Software to the Cloud

Microsoft Promo for existing Dynamics OnPremise Customers

Transform your business by migrating to the Cloud. Existing Dynamics customers who have licensed Dynamics 365 Business Central on-premises or Dynamics NAV can renew their Enhancement on a monthly basis by purchasing Dynamics 365 Business Central online licenses at a 60% discounted price.  Customers will have 4 years to make the transition to the Cloud.

Promo runs from September 1, 2021, to June 30, 2022.

Why Microsoft Dynamics 365 is so popular?

With the cloud-first approach of Microsoft, CRM and ERP customers are increasingly adopting the cloud and moving from their current On-premises CRM/ERP system to the cloud. The reason is simple – when you are on-premises, you spend more time and money on maintaining the software. You will need more resources to stay up and running and to have a scalable solution for your changing business needs. In long term, it is not going to help.

Why do businesses feel reluctant in moving to the cloud?

The other side of the picture says that businesses had already invested a lot of money to have on-premises Dynamics CRM/ERP solutions and now they are being influenced to migrate to the cloud by spending more money. The move is not so easy and it will pose a number of challenges as well. Businesses will have less control over their servers and the data import performance may get affected due to the cloud environment.

Improve security, privacy, and reliability

Get peace of mind knowing your sensitive business data is stored in highly secure, state-of-the-art data centers owned and managed by Microsoft. Your data will be there when you need it, thanks to a 99.9 percent uptime service-level agreement (SLA).

Enable scalability and flexibility

Support business growth without costly changes to your IT infrastructure, including the ability to quickly activate and deploy new users.

Free up IT resources

Improve IT productivity by reducing the complexity associated with managing hardware and software and providing support. Eliminate the hassle of software maintenance tasks—such as backups, upgrades, and patches—and free up IT staff to focus on strategic planning and other high-priority work items.

Bring all your data together

Typically, customer relationship management (CRM) and enterprise resource planning (ERP) data have been maintained separately. Dynamics 365 lets you connect this data for a 360-degree view of your business and access it from familiar solutions like Microsoft 365 and Microsoft Power BI.

Adapt to your business needs

Enhance your Dynamics 365 experience with prebuilt business applications, developed by Microsoft and select partners and available through the Microsoft AppSource marketplace. If your business has a unique need, build apps using Microsoft Power Platform and then customize and extend them.

Increase collaboration and productivity

Enhance teamwork and boost productivity by accessing information from anywhere, at any time, from any device. Enable remote employees to share information in real-time, allowing for easier and more efficient collaboration.

Empower your organization to do more

Give your team the tools and information they need to compete, succeed, and excel by providing access to innovations like AI and predictive analytics.
