D365 V/s The Rest

When Dynamics 365 was announced last year, Takeshi Numoto, Corporate Vice President, Microsoft Cloud + Enterprise, described a better world for businesses everywhere. “One where you can track leads, automate field service, drive sales and improve operations using modern, mobile, enterprise-ready intelligent business apps from the cloud that are as easy to use as the consumer apps that help us all get rides, book rooms, listen to music and take actions to improve our health.”

In just a few weeks after the launch, Microsoft Dynamics 365 took the center stage and showcased the unification of the Dynamics CRM and ERP Cloud solutions into one cloud service with new purpose-built applications and built-in insights and intelligence. With core business apps (focusing on Sales, Field Service, Customer Service, Project Service Automation, Marketing, and Operations), analytics from Cortana Intelligence and Power BI, and the productivity power of Office 365, this new approach is more than a game changer. It will be the framework that will help grow your business in FY18 and beyond.

While there are many different kinds of CRM tools available from different vendors, only Microsoft Dynamics 365 focuses on small and medium organizations as well as multinational corporations. Dynamics 365 for Business Edition can either be bought as an individual app or as a part of Dynamics 365 Business Edition, which comprises SMB focused sales, service, and marketing applications. It also comes at a lower cost and targets companies that have between 10 to 250 employees. Whereas Dynamics 365 Enterprise Edition is cloud solution designed for large businesses with more than 250 employees.

Microsoft Dynamics 365 offers deep integration to Office 365 to seamlessly connect your data and processes with collaboration and productivity, tools like SharePoint, Office, and Skype for Business can also be integrated. And with embedded intelligence tools including Power BI, Cortana Intelligence Suite, and Azure IoT, Dynamics 365 will help your organization disrupt the competition and increase the speed and efficiency of doing business.

Microsoft Dynamics 365 – 6 Signs You Need To Upgrade Your Business Accounting Software

Business leaders are so focused on growing their business that they often neglect the infrastructure needed to support their growing business needs. But, how do you know that you’ve outgrown your current system? Business leaders experience a number of pain points which communicate that it may be the time to upgrade to a more scalable solution, such as Dynamics 365. We’ve compiled a list of 6 such signs and how Dynamics 365 helps you overcome it:

Data Entry, Reporting, and Updating is slow

With the continuous increase in demands, the software systems become slower. A slow performing software acts as a hindrance to your business growth. If you’re continuously waiting for your information to process or reports to be generated, there is a good chance that your software is not able to handle the pressure. Also, if your system freezes occasionally for no apparent reason, that is another sign of your accounting system being outgrown.

Manual entries take up a lot of time

When businesses grow, teams spend most of their time in re-entering sales orders in their accounting software or copying any kind of data between different systems to work on budgets, forecasts and cash flow. These are the signs of accounting systems being pushed out of their capabilities. You should only need to rely on a single system to perform all tasks independently if you want to reduce the heavy drag on time and resources. Also, re-entering the data manually increases the risk of user error.

Reporting is inadequate

An accounting software can store all kinds of information but faces challenges when it comes to presenting the information in the right format. The template-based reporting functionality is very limited to the basic information and as the business grows, the need for a sophisticated, comprehensive, customizable and easy to interpret reports increases in order to suit different business units and purposes. The answer is a fully integrated business management system, like Dynamics 365, that stores and presents the information in the easiest way possible.

Real-time reporting is difficult

Having access to the real-time data is critical to the success of every business. Not having the ability to view your data in real-time increases the risk of errors and missing opportunities to correct errors before they cause too much damage. The right ERP solution can give you your real-time data at your fingertips. It helps business managers make important decisions, effectively manage cash flow and continue to support future growth.

The Data is scattered across multiple systems

The basic, entry-level systems can only support a small number of users. If your accounting system prevents multiple users from operating simultaneously or if it freezes when multiple users are working, there is an urgent need to upgrade your software. Microsoft Dynamics 365 can integrate with 3rd party programs for you to access all your customers, vendors, supply chain, manufacturing, inventory, project, HR and financial data from a single platform.

Lack of useful insights

For any business to succeed in the long run, managers need to know exactly what’s working and what’s not across all operations. If your current accounting system doesn’t integrate with business functions like warehousing, inventory, CRM, etc. there is a chance that it’s holding your business back. An integrated business management system will give your business a 360-degree view of your business while allowing you to perform a detailed analysis to turn information into useful insights which can be used to make important decisions for business growth.

Achieving Application Portability with PaaS

Today, Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) is increasingly gaining popularity as a Public Cloud offering compared to Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) because of its simple operations and lower costs. These days, most PaaS customers get locked-in because of the specialized OS or middleware features but for the customers looking for flexibility in working across multiple Cloud platforms and providers, a portable PaaS environment is a feasible choice.

Before we see how organizations can implement a portable PaaS model, let’s first see the primary reasons behind the adoption of PaaS services:

  • Lesser costs of licensing and supporting because of the pre-installed OS and middleware.
  • Streamlined Hybrid Cloud deployment with standardized application services.
  • Improved application performance and functionality by creating a PaaS environment within the IaaS Cloud using the available web services.

How a portable PaaS model fairs across these three areas and how it moves within the various cloud and private environments is important but a single PaaS approach might not be enough to address this. Thus, enterprises need to prioritize their PaaS goals and combine different options to create the desired PaaS environment.

 

Here are the top 4 ways to achieve a Portable PaaS model:

Adopt Container Technology for Application Hosting: The container architectures share the Operating System, but the middleware and file system elements can be copied to each container to standardize the middleware across container images. This allows the creation of specialized container images for the application and the component which can then be moved across environments to be run on any container system hosted in Cloud or the Data Center.
