Revisiting the Cloud: Why Hybrid Solutions for Microsoft Dynamics GP Ring True

Way back in November 2010 I wrote about the cloud with respect to ERP. At Convergence 2011, Microsoft showed off some work in progress on the next release of Dynamics GP, version 12. Specifically, they showed off web based forms and the opportunity for a hybrid deployment.

I confess to being thrilled by the prospect. I want a hybrid option much more than a pure cloud solution. In a hybrid deployment Dynamics GP can be deployed locally or in hosted environment. The application can be accessed with a local client, a terminal server/Citrix deployment or with the upcoming web interface.
