The Future of Dynamics in the Cloud Highlights Day 2 of Decisions Spring 2010
Look for Microsoft's Azure to continue expanding its "Cloud" offerings. But don't expect Microsoft Dynamics ERP applications-AX, GP, NAV-to immediately become accessible via the Cloud themselves.
That was the message from ERP analyst, consultant, and writer Josh Greenbaum in a keynote address on a busy Day 2 of Decisions Spring 2010 on Thursday.
Azure offers a number of benefits for Dynamics users specifically, said Greenbaum, including as a hosting platform for Dynamics CRM, a deployment platform for new .NET applications, an integration platform, and a platform for new value-added on-demand applications.
"But Microsoft won't place AX, GP, and NAV in Azure...yet," he said. Instead, he predicted that Microsoft will "disconnect parts of GP and AX to be more cloud consumable."
