Take an accelerated path to business transformation with Microsoft Dynamics 365 on the Azure cloud

If you see value in cloud computing and the innovation and standards development that Microsoft and its partners have performed in the areas of ERP and CRM solutions, give some thought to Microsoft Dynamics 365. This platform delivers combines CRM and ERP functionality, familiar from Microsoft Dynamics, with new capabilities and advanced analytics on one of the world’s leading cloud infrastructures.

In Dynamics 365, needless barriers between CRM and ERP disappear. You can implement separate apps or workloads, adding and integrating others at the right time. Each of them works perfectly well on its own, but together, they help you transform your business for digital operations and a more connected, faster-moving response to customer needs.

If you already run Microsoft Dynamics AX or Microsoft Dynamics CRM, you can move some or all of these systems’ computing workloads to the cloud and benefit from automatic upgrades, integrated functionality, unlimited scalability, and reliable performance under the most challenging circumstances.

Global infrastructure for business in the cloud

As you work with Microsoft Dynamics 365 apps, you benefit from the foundation Microsoft has built for the Azure cloud – a global network of data centers; many layers of powerful security for facilities, hardware, and applications; and a variety of proven, easily implemented cloud architectures. These resources are available to your business without a huge upfront investment, because Azure cloud services take the form of a flexible, economical, pay-as-you-go subscription.

For most of our customers’ applications and usage scenarios, the hybrid cloud is the best choice. Azure frequently receives high marks from analysts and cloud experts because of its strong support for hybrid environments, where companies connect cloud-based and on-premise computing in a unified environment.

Integrated intelligence at the ready

What you accomplish in the cloud all depends on your goals and interests. If you find that simple tools that facilitate post-fact reporting are no longer timely and powerful enough, you can take advantage of the analytics and business insight capabilities on the Azure platform: Power BI and the Cortana Intelligence Suite help you answer your questions and shape your strategy.

In the cloud it’s also easy to connect various data sources, such as your finance, operations, and sales systems, with data from connected sensors in the internet of things (IoT), which tell you about such events as the performance of equipment and machinery or the environmental conditions in your warehouse.

Microsoft Dynamics 365 integrates fully with Office 365, enabling contributors to work within a unified, consistent software environment that they can access from any device and any location where connectivity is available.

The partner resources you want for your transformative endeavors

Supporting and surrounding Microsoft Dynamics 365 are many apps created by the partners for various industry-specific and other requirements. Many To-Increase solutions are already available for the Azure cloud, and others are rapidly going through the update and certification process. You can rely on our technical and business expertise to help you realize the transformative potential of cloud ERP to become a more profitable, competitive company and make customers happy.
