If you’ve just begun researching Microsoft Dynamics GP, you may not realize that you have a choice when it comes to how you want to deploy the system. You can choose to either deploy it on premise, meaning you own the servers, you purchase the Dynamics GP license, you are responsible for system backups and maintenance and you retain complete physical control over your data. Until a few years ago, this was the only way to utilize Microsoft Dynamics GP.
However, with the maturation and widespread acceptance of cloud computing there is now a second option. That is, to deploy Dynamics GP in the cloud with the help of a hosting provider. In this case, your company’s Microsoft Dynamics GP system is installed on a server that your hosting provider owns, they take care of all system backups and maintenance and in return, you pay them a monthly fee for running the software for you.
That said, one of the questions we hear most often from curious Dynamics GP customers and prospects alike is “Which deployment option should I choose?" Like so many questions in life, the answer to this one depends on a variety of factors. Wanting to give people a simple way to understand and weigh their Dynamics GP deployment options, we developed this brief video that will walk you through all the pluses and minuses that you need to consider when trying to decide which deployment option is best for your business. Watch it below.
