Businesses that use on-premises software are still struggling with today's problems. Moving your ERP to the cloud can set your company up for success.
These are the top seven major benefits of moving to cloud computing.
01 Lower setup and implementation costs.
On-premises deployment usually requires significant hardware and personnel investment. Cloud-based Off-site hosting and provider expertise eliminates the need for additional hardware or personnel. A reduced total cost of ownership is the #1 reason companies switch to a cloud-based ERP.
02 Flexible Data Storage.
Additional hardware needs to be purchased when on-site servers are at capacity with an on-premises deployment. Cloud-based companies can quickly scale storage up or down as needed.
03 Streamlined updates & innovations.
On-site updates are a time-consuming process requiring skilled personnel with on-premises solutions. Cloud-based upgrades are pushed out from the provider and approved on-site to protect customizations.
04 Simpler data backup and restoration.
With on-premises, complex data backup process usually requires a maintenance plan in a SQL Server, plus other products/services. Cloud-based solutions however, provides regular system backup taken daily and is available to users, with a provision to create user backups.
05 Increased security & scalability.
On-premises environments are usually less secure, requiring costly additional monitoring and a dedicated IT admin. Cloud-based Microsoft-owned and managed data centers are secure, certified, and compliant with international standards.
06 Broader accessibility.
Accessing an on-premises deployment remotely is complicated by the Active Directory authentication process. Cloud-based solutions have separate authentication, meaning Dynamics 365 can be accessed remotely and across device types.
07 Common data platform.
On-premises solutions are more difficult to integrate with other applications. Cloud-based Dynamics 365 Common Data Service helps create new data models and apps with connected data.
