Editor's Note: This article coincides with part 2 of our new podcast series on AX to D365FO upgrades.

  • Cloud
  • On-premises
  • Hybrid

The second major surprise for me was that these sophisticated debates were often tossed out the window because of some minor “inconvenience” in the on-premises approach.
