Microsoft’s ERP products “Dynamics NAV 2013” and “Dynamics GP 2013” are now available from Microsoft’s cloud partners for hosting on Windows Azure.
Hosted on Windows Server virtual machines on Windows Azure, both will be sold via Microsoft certified partners, not by Microsoft itself, as the company indicated would be the case.
“End users can access the cloud-hosted versions via the Web or desktop clients, either from the office or on the go using mobile devices.”
“Over the past several months we’ve been working closely with our first ‘go-live’ customers and partners, as well as with the Windows Azure team, to develop guidance and tooling to ensure a great experience deploying on Azure. That work is now complete,” said company officials.
Microsoft plans to make its two other ERP wares “Dynamics AX” and “Dynamics SL” — available on Windows Azure at some point in the future, officials have said.
Microsoft has also enabled Microsoft Dynamics Certified Partners to deploy Microsoft Dynamics NAV and GP solutions in the cloud on Windows Azure Infrastructure Services.
“This means your solution can now be hosted in a secure, private cloud on a Windows Azure Virtual Machine. End-users can access that solution using Web or desktop clients, either from the office or on the go using mobile devices.”
Organizations of all sizes in the public sector are sometimes strapped for IT resources, and now, they can use solutions and add-ons based on the Microsoft Dynamics CRM platform to better manage tasks such as citizen services, FOIA requests, economic development, mapping, fleet management, etc.
Microsoft has now made available Dynamics CRM Apps in online CRM App Store for customers to buy apps (or install free ones) that are available in the cloud or on premises.
“The entire experience is designed to make it easy for organizations to purchase, deploy and manage important application services.”
“CRM Apps for Dynamics help manage public records, maps and PDFs are available for them through an easy “Click, Try, and Buy” experience. Trial versions allow them to see if a solution works for them,” informs Microsoft.
The online store also provides pricing options, brochures, videos, descriptions, and features of each solution.
