Here’s a simple analogy that will illustrate the advantages of Dynamics 365 vs. NetSuite. Imagine having to share a single phone line with multiple users. (Don’t laugh; these so-called “party lines” were common in the early days of telephones).
How would you keep your personal information private on a party line?
How could you ensure that someone else’s blunder didn’t rob you of phone access?
Or how would you handle upgrades to the system without everyone being on board?
Having a party line would be clunky and confusing – two qualities that spell disaster for business operations.
Party lines are a lot like Netsuite’s multi-tenant software. In both cases, lots of people have to share the same resources. Dynamics 365, on the other hand, is a single-tenant solution. This means each user gets a unique environment in which to work. The advantages of the Dynamics 365 approach include:
- Enhanced security. The single-tenant software is impervious to attacks that could damage or even cripple multi-tenant systems. Neither solution is 100% foolproof, of course. But single-tenant software like Dynamics 365 has strong advantages over systems like Netsuite.
- Flexibility. With Netsuite, every user must adapt to a mandatory set of “upgrades” every few months. These changes occur on Netsuite’s schedule, not yours. This can cause compliance and training issues you’ll never have to worry about if you use Dynamics 365.
- Customizability. Dynamics 365 allows each user to tailor the layout to his or her needs. Netsuite, however, imposes a one-size-fits-all configuration that may, or may not, be best for your situation.
