The next release of each ERP product—in the cloud! As announced at our annual Convergence North America conference in April, 2011, each of our ERP products will be available on the Windows Azure platform in their next release. That means that future versions of Microsoft Dynamics AX, Microsoft Dynamics GP, Microsoft Dynamics NAV, and Microsoft Dynamics SL will all take advantage of this exciting new platform to allow our customers unparalleled flexibility in deploying cloud solutions throughout their organizations. The benefits of this strategy for our customers include:
An accelerated time to value for your investments through shorter deployment times.
A rich set of functionality specific to your industry requirements.
A subscription licensing model enabling you to pay for your ERP solution as an operating expense rather than a capital expense, and the elasticity to pay as you use.
A high service availability based on the powerful Windows Azure platform capabilities and security.
Your choice of deployment options
You can deploy your ERP solution to fit your requirements today and yet retain the flexibility to migrate to a different model as your needs change. Microsoft Dynamics partners are ready to help you leverage your IT investments into cloud computing.
