Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations, Enterprise edition

Microsoft Dynamics 365:-

Regular updates mark the availability of several upgraded applications every now and then incorporating many existing Dynamics 365 Cloud Services.

Let us consider the new Applications and capabilities, beginning with new deployment options for Finance and Operations.  Two additional deployment options for Dynamics 365 Operations Microsoft’s cloud ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) service were in the offing some time back.  The local business data deployment options for on-premises deployments are now a reality.

Additionally the option to deploy Finance & Operations as a Microsoft managed service running in Microsoft Azure, customers are now at liberty to deploy it in their own data center to help meet their business needs.

The on-premises deployment option or local business data provides a unique differentiator to enterprise customers in comparison to other ERP products by providing a choice as customers can start local business data and when they are ready, they could have the option to easily move their solution to the cloud. They will experience the cloud scale advantage and the rich analytic experiences it delivers. Moreover, the on-premises solution is based on a modern architecture that focuses on influencing Windows Server 2016 and SQL Server 2016 to present a deployment running in a customer’s data center.

Cloud Service is considered to be the best deployment option as the customers’ need to support business process execution in their data centers in some cases is increasing day by day.  However, they need not worry as help is at hand with on-premises deployments customers can resolve these essential business requirements.

Data Residency – This refers to the geographic location of an organization’s data information.  It is also the legal requirement imposed on data based in that particular region.  Some Government and industry regulations require customers to store business data locally and also mandated by our customer’s IT standards.

 Business Continuity – Regardless of a warehouse, service shop or production facility, your critical business processes can run locally in the facility even during lack of network consistency and cannot be relied upon for crucial business operations. On- premises deployments provide enhanced business continuity for scenarios that may require low latency integration with other on-premises systems.  It may even require deployments in regions where there are no options for a reliable network coverage infrastructure.  Local infrastructure issues can be addressed in some cases along with a financially backed SLA, with Azure Express Route.

Data Center Investments – Customers can influence hardware investments as well as their IT staff, particularly those already working with familiar Microsoft interfaces and tools viz., Windows 2016 and SQL Server 2016 to run their Finance and Operations instance locally. Moreover, customers have the option to life on-premises deployments to the cloud when it is time for a refresh.

Finance and Operations is unique in our ability to allow customers to deploy wherever and any format they want with the introduction of cloud plus edge deployment option, the best of on-premises and cloud deployments can be delivered.  Even cloud deployments in one option to help support our customers worldwide are also possible.
