To Business Central SaaS or to Business Central On-Premises, That is the Question?

Most customers will think about Business Central in the Cloud (Microsoft’s Software as a Service solution or ‘SaaS’ for short) as the Eldorado (or destination of gold and eternal bliss).  Frankly, I would agree with that in the long term.

To Business Central or not to Business Central, That is the Question?

Will it become easier? Not for the next upgrade, unfortunately, but once you are on Dynamics 365 Business Central, the costs of upgrading will start declining. I will prove that to you if you get to the 4th cost reduction (or put my money where my mouth is).

2017 – the year, the future of business solutions was born

What it is that Microsoft wants to accomplish exactly with Dynamics 365? Microsoft does not want the customers to be worried about what technology that solution is built on or infrastructure it runs on as it is all Microsoft technology (the infrastructure of choice for Dynamics 365 and all the apps is, of course, Microsoft Azure). The customer can just focus on their need and which business apps suits these needs best.
