Microsoft aims to reduce pricing uncertainty for Dynamics GP on Azure

When it comes to deploying Microsoft Dynamics GP on the Azure cloud, one of the first questions Microsoft's John Dooley gets is: "What are the expected monthly costs?"

To help with the answer, Dooley offers the Azure Calculator for Microsoft Dynamics GP, a simple Excel-based toolset that enables partners to model common Dynamics GP deployments to help customers and prospects consider different options.

"You only need to provide the number of Dynamics GP Desktop, Web/Limited user clients," he writes. "Select a few license options, add in some of your own options/services and the modeler does all the heavy lifting for you. And of course, it also allows you to adjust for your own experience and recommendations."

Excellent explanation

Excellent article Linda. Our GP team is struggling with this question as the techy folks say "let's do Azure" without realizing how complicated that is. Your article is helpful to show that it is really not that simple. You don't get the same benefits and pricing model as your do going with a full service/turnkey hosting provider like we are used to - such as myappsanywhere or similar providers.
