Migration to Dynamics 365: 5 Reasons to Switch to the Cloud

Cloud technology has impacted not only the business landscape but also our personal lives. Businesses have no option but to consider migrating to cloud-based solutions to stay competitive in the market. If you are a user of Dynamics AX, Microsoft Dynamics 365 on-premises, or other legacy ERP systems, then you must consider migrating to the cloud-based Dynamics 365 suite. In this post, we will discuss the five compelling reasons why you should migrate to Dynamics 365.

Guaranteed uptime

Dynamics 365 guarantees 99.9% uptime. This means that data will be there whenever you want it and that it will remain very safe. Further, cloud-enabled businesses were able to quickly adjust to the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic. The pandemic has not only highlighted the need to enable remote work but also its viability. While businesses wish to get back to the pre-pandemic normal with respect to many aspects, they must realize that much of the new normal is here to stay. Cloud-based Dynamics 365 would be of great help in this regard.

Microsoft Dynamics 365 is Regularly updated

Microsoft updates Dynamics 365 on a regular basis. This makes it a game-changer for businesses as they continue to enjoy a competitive advantage over their competitors. Furthermore, you will be using the latest and best version of the software suite all the time. Besides, Microsoft offers the Update Autopilot service to make the whole process a breeze.

Enhanced ERP experience

Apart from the significant capability that Dynamics 365 brings by way of the cloud, there are a number of small cloud-based components that are part of D365 for enhancing your ERP experience. Everything in Microsoft’s ecosystem, right from Office 365 to Teams and the Power Platform, is on Azure.


Microsoft Dynamics 365 enables you to scale up or down your operations as needed to suit the market situation. Furthermore, you can take full advantage of the Enterprise Agreement and the provisions of the Cloud Solution Provider licensing agreement to fix short-term and long-term pricing.


The return on investment aspect might assume different meanings based on where you are on your Dynamics-ERP journey. If you are already on Dynamics AX or any other legacy ERP solution, you will have to bear the cost of upgrading to or implementing Dynamics365. However, the good news is that this could be the last time you go through a disruptive ERP change. All said and done, the ROI of Dynamics 365 is quite attractive.

If you already have set up a large server room and the required infrastructure, you might be tempted to implement Dynamics 365 on-premises. However, maintaining the hardware components required for running D365 in-house is a challenging task. Cloud-based Microsoft Dynamics 365 is the best option if you want the management of your business processes to be a hassle-free affair.
