Upgrade to Dynamics 365 and enjoy the benefits of ERP+CRM at one price and the industry specific solution from SAGlobal.
Moving to Dynamics 365 can offer significant benefits to you. While it would be difficult to list all of the benefits, some of the more significant benefits can include:
Dynamics 365 in the cloud offers a much more simplified architecture that provides easier access via a pure browser-based user interface, eliminating the need for Remote Desktop/Citrix and the Enterprise Portal (SharePoint) with previous Dynamics AX versions.
Dynamics 365 utilizes a native HTML5 browser based user interface, which can run on any device (PC, tablet, phone), any platform (Windows, Mac, etc.), and any browser (IE, Chrome, Safari, Firefox, etc.). This simplifies access to the application from any type of user device.
When deploying Dynamics 365 in the cloud, not only do you eliminate on premise servers and systems that require maintenance, but Microsoft takes responsibility for monitoring and updating the underlying platform (Windows, SQL Server) and the application itself (with your assistance). This Microsoft servicing reduces the need for your IT staff to maintain your ERP system.
By moving into the new Dynamics 365 cloud paradigm, you gain the choice and ability to easily stay up to date with straightforward, cost effective platform updates (every 3 months) and application updates (every 6 months), eliminating the need for costly, disruptive major version upgrades every few years.
Microsoft has been aggressively investing in R&D for Dynamics AX over the years, and moving to Dynamics 365 will provide additional features and capabilities that your organization can take advantage of.
By moving to Dynamics 365, you can take advantage of many new capabilities in the Microsoft cloud, including a common data model with Dynamics CRM and Office 365, the use of PowerApps for easily creating mobile apps, the use of Flow for easily creating workflows and notifications, and the ability to leverage advanced analytics scenarios via Cortana Intelligence Suite.
Dynamics 365 now includes a real-time, in-memory BI solution that provides up-to-the-minute information around how your business is performing, with new tools (Power BI) for visualizing this data and creating dashboards.
In Platform update 8 and the July 2017 Application release, Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations, Enterprise edition, provides an upgrade path that customers who currently run Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 can use to move their data and code to Finance and Operations.
