Microsoft Azure is 'consumption' based; offers global availability.

Business owners in the small to mid-size manufacturing or distribution sector, and who are looking to the cloud for ERP services, may feel overwhelmed: Adding a cloud-hosting option to the equation is yet another huge ‘unknown’ in terms of expectations and outcomes.

Azure makes migration easier…

Granted, stakeholders already may have spent an inordinate amount of time vetting ERP vendors, including a number of consultations to determine the best implementation strategies: “Should critical programs, like proprietary apps and financials continue to reside on-premise?” “Will Microsoft Azure become yet another expense in the change-over from legacy programs?”

In the latter case, today’s SMB should rest easy when choosing a robust ERP platform like Microsoft Dynamics GP that uses Azure to enhance its software’s features, as outlined in a ComputerWorld overview.

Azure: more integration of apps and programs…

Gone are the days when IT hobbles together customized apps and programs whose accessibility lies throughout an array of Internet portals. Worse, these legacy programs may reside on-premise in isolated files and folders.

Such non-integration impacts the creation, sharing and expansion of programs, not to mention the lack of scalability.

In short, Azure cloud-hosting services offer subscription levels based on consumption, a decision made easier when business owners team up with a Microsoft certified Gold Partner like Technology Management Concepts (TMC).

TMC partners with Microsoft Azure to receive what is termed a ‘fast-time to market.’ In addition, subscribers benefit from its global accessibility and are ensured of minimal disruption to existing business processes during implementation. Contact us to learn more.
