Microsoft Dynamics ERP on Azure: Partners intrigued but moving forward with care


When it comes to forging new territory, no one wants to be a pioneer because the pioneers, as the saying goes, are the people with the arrows in their backs.

And that sentiment apparently applies to customers and partners who have not yet fully bought in to the idea of moving their Microsoft Dynamics NAV and Dynamics GP solutions to hosting in Windows Azure. The opportunities for Azure-hosted Dynamics ERP are out there, Dynamics experts explained to us in a range of interviews, but there are also risks for those who move too quickly.

Dynamics NAV 2013 in the cloud

Hi Linda,

Thanks for your post. I’d like to share my experience with Microsoft Dynamics NAV in the Cloud from an Australian perspective. Recently, Hands-on Systems launched a new business unit called Dynamic Business Online

In just under 9 months we have several clients live on Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2013 in the cloud (Windows Azure). We found that our clients were very attracted to the solution benefits including the quick implementation schedule, the reduced licencing costs, and comprehensive functionality available out of the box.

Personally, I have found this innovative product thoroughly exciting, and I am looking forward to Microsoft opening data centres in Australia which will attract even more customers.
