There is a lot of misinformation to Dynamics 365 ERP/CRM users that migration to Microsoft Azure Cloud is expensive. Migration indeed comes at a cost, but it is undoubtedly true that your business will spend more than it would have with cloud services if you analyze the expenses for maintaining the on-premises services.
It does not stop there; other aspects such as security, efficiency, and reliability of your system are incomparable with the locally based Dynamics 365 ERP/CRM infrastructure. This article discusses the benefits of migrating their Dynamics 365 ERP/CRM to the Microsoft Azure Cloud and its impact on business productivity.
Microsoft Azure Improves security, privacy, and reliability
In the current world, an organization’s sensitive data is critical, and its security must be guaranteed. With on-premises services, there is always a risk of a treat either internally or externally. With the state-of-the-art data centers by Microsoft Azure, you will have your data secured and auto-updates to keep up with recent patches.
Depending on the industries of your organization, Microsoft Dynamics encompass very sensitive data; AZURE applies encryption standards that will ease your mind about the idea of your cloud data being insecure. Migration to the cloud means more straightforward management of your data, real-time backup, and total access to the data.
One of the best-case scenarios of your data security is the use of FedRAMP High Authorization that covers more than 70 compliance areas and has 18 Azure services. This makes Azure the most trusted cloud by committing to General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
Microsoft Azure Enables scalability and flexibility
Every main business objective is to deploy IT services to increase productivity at a manageable cost. With Microsoft Azure, your cloud services grow as the business develops without making changes to your IT infrastructure, which is very expensive.
The platform ensures efficiency in deploying and activating new users. There is an inadequate response to scalability with the traditional CRM software, but with your, CRM launched online, you will have higher chances to expand your business at a go.
Microsoft Azure Saves IT resources
Having Dynamics 365 ERP/CRM services running on-premises means more support from the IT department. The services require frequent maintenance of the servers, local upgrades, security support, and other vital services. It means that with your business growing, it may get to a point where the IT department may be overwhelmed by the complexity of managing both software and hardware support requirements.
With Microsoft Azure, this is easy to eliminate because all the upgrades, back-ups, and patches are automatic and do not require support from the IT department. Migrating the services to the cloud means that the IT staff will focus on other essential aspects of the company.
Seamless Application Integration
On-premise ERP and CRM are maintained separately, but integration between the application becomes very easy with the migration to the cloud. You can have a 360-degree view of your business. It does not stop there; other applications such as Microsoft Office 365 services such as OneDrive, OneShare, and SharePoint forms part of the new online integration.
Azure ensures that every new software is tested and timely deployed in the cloud environment for continuous improvement of services- this is done weekly, monthly, and daily. There is also integration with DevOps tools and logging systems which ensures easier monitoring.
And Microsoft 365 Increases collaboration and productivity
Many businesses operate from different locations or regions, which means that the resources are shared across countries. For efficiency coordination, teams work remotely, which is one of the current trends in businesses today. Your services, such as Microsoft 365 and Microsoft Teams, provide a platform for remote interaction among the employees regardless of their location.
Productivity is then realized with cloud solutions offered by Microsoft Azure because the information is accessible anywhere and at any time using any device. Teamwork is boosted because your employees have an opportunity to share real-time data that is constituent for any productive organization.
