What Does a Typical Dynamics NAV Cloud Customer Look Like?

A year ago, we launched 1ClickFactory’s Self-Provisioning for Dynamics NAV on Microsoft Azure Service to help Dynamics Partners quickly, securely implement Dynamics NAV solutions on Microsoft Azure through self-service for their customers, eliminating the risk to Partners. Given the success of this program, we thought it might be helpful for you, the Microsoft Partner, to know more about the basic characteristics of the typical Dynamics NAV Cloud customer.

Beating the Odds by Focusing on ISV Core Business in the Cloud Era

In the last few years, 1ClickFactory has been a key provider of content and delivery of Microsoft’s Road to Repeatability and Ramp programs that are focused on the transformation of services, products and ultimately businesses from on-premise to cloud.  In those programs, we used economic models to simulate the effects of a transformation process to cloud business to show which economic levers were most important.

In other words, customers are not looking for a complex solution (like a Ferrari); instead, they want a solution with the best ROI (like an economy class car). For these customers, less is more.

Dynamics NAV on Subscription: Tremendous Opportunity to Add New Customers

Microsoft has announced a powerful promotion: The more you integrate your NAV SaaS customers with Microsoft Azure and Office 365, the less you pay for Microsoft Dynamics NAV licenses.
