Are you overwhelmed with the prospect of a Dynamics 365 cloud migration project? Are you wondering what the big deal is about staying on-premise? If the idea of migration is still confusing, there is hope! To become cloud confident, it takes finding the right mix of support and understanding that the technology is there, and ready to provide new opportunities for your company. Here are a few things to keep in mind as you begin your journey to modernizing your systems.
Moving from On-Prem to Cloud is Cost Effective
Let’s take a close look at why on-prem could be costing you valuable money. Maintaining an on-prem infrastructure requires a remote space, electricity, air conditioning, ongoing maintenance on the entire system, physical security, and so on. Therefore, your company is responsible for maintaining the solution and all its related resources. There are also the costs of finding and training engineer talent, installing any new software, and managing any system failures. On the other hand, with a cloud computing model, you only pay for the resources your organization uses, with none of the hardware and server room maintenance and upkeep costs. In the end, on-prem is a tremendous hassle that costs your organization more headaches than the actual benefit of having the solution.
Faster Implementation and User Adaption with the Cloud
Cloud-based software offers quicker deployment than an on-prem solution. Deploying on-premise applications can take a very long time, not to mention a lot of work. On top of that, it can take months or even years to generate an ROI. In the end, the cost of implementation can amount to as much as five times the value of the on-premise software itself. In comparison, a cloud solution can take a fraction of the time to implement. Even large, complex cloud implementations can be completed in three to six months. User adaption of the cloud usually happens quicker than its on-premise counterpart. Browser-based, cloud systems tend to be more intuitive and closely tailored to the employee’s roles. Making the cloud, less disruptive to users, and easier to learn.
Dynamics 365 Cloud Migrations Provide more Flexibility
Migrating to the cloud allows a business to adapt to market conditions with a certain flexibility that is not available on-prem. A cloud solution is ideal for businesses with growing or fluctuating bandwidth demands. Therefore, if the needs of your organization increase, you can scale up your cloud capacity quickly. Alternatively, you can scale down your cloud capacity to adapt to your organization’s demands. This level of agility can give businesses a real advantage over their competitors.
