As Customers Express Caution, Microsoft Dynamics ERP Cloud Strategy Takes the Long View

As the morning's announcement of Microsoft's Dynamics ERP cloud vision began to sink in today at Convergence 2011, Microsoft corporate vice president Kirill Tatarinov revealed a few additional details today on the requirements and decision points Microsoft will face as it readies future releases aimed at the cloud. 

The next major version of Dynamics ERP products "will run in Windows Azure at scale for our customers, supporting the same business model we have today bringing the partner ecosystem with us", said Tatarinov.  But he also noted that announcements and approaches could vary by product and by timing of the product roadmaps.  Individual announcements will hit on a product by product basis.
