  • Why Microsoft are making a push for The Cloud over On-Premises in 2022


Microsoft has made their feelings on the matter crystal clear, drawing a firm line in the sand that The Cloud is the way they want to go in the future. In a recent bid to synchronise customers across a smart-map, Microsoft announced their intent to focus on solely Cloud-based Dynamics 365 Business Central.

As Cloud implementation is overtaking On-Premises, more businesses follow suit, yet many refuse to budge, either afraid of change or investing too much into hardware. Armed with the correct information, you can start to pin down why the cloud is so much more beneficial for your business. We know not everyone wants to follow trends for the sake of following trends, but Microsoft has realised how scalable and cost-effective The Cloud is for IT management, and hopefully, soon, you will too.

To gain more confidence in your Dynamics System, check out the perks that cloud-based management has over traditional Local Business Data in 2022.

You’ll soon be able to effortlessly identify the reasons why The Cloud is emerging as the more popular form of hosting Dynamics 365:

The Advantages of Cloud-based Servers

Cloud-based hosting stores everything, program, and data alike, in an online Microsoft Dynamics server, eliminating the physical ownership of the software. Building, testing, deployment, and management can be actioned from a network of managed data centres dotted across the planet. You can cut out software installation on devices in favour of internet access, much akin to inbox notifications across service providers. Dynamics 365 on the cloud needs only a browser and a connection. So, why is letting Microsoft maintain your Dynamics infrastructure a more effective method? The following features and services should provide an apt explanation:

Scale & Scope

At any time they wish, Dynamics 365 SaaS users can get a sense of the size and scope of their business and not have to rely on new servers and processors to meet the demands of business expansion. Without integrating into the cloud, On-Premises Dynamics 365 users cannot utilise all the features and functions like azure-powered machine learning tools, versatile self-service web portals, navigational learning paths, and integrated survey platforms, PowerApps, Flow, Machine learning Ai to spot trends, and gamification. Being internet-reliant, cloud-based Dynamics 365 lets you add new users via a simple subscription service. It is flexible to any requirements you ask of it.

Unshackled From Physical Limitations

The most glaring advantage of Cloud-based Dynamics 365 is that, compared to On-Premise, it is a piece of software rather than hardware. The cloud gives you all the physical perks of not being forced to spend time, money, and resources on maintaining in-house servers and hardware. There is no gruelling installation on individual machines. All that is required is an internet connection. And, while the case could be made that cloud storage can come with the additional price tag of renting space on the Dynamics 365 service provider server, it still outweighs the overall cost of precious resources constantly maintaining the hardware.
