"Why use SaaSplaza for Microsoft Azure?"
What value does SaaSplaza bring to Microsoft Azure? After all, Microsoft says to manage Microsoft Azure is easy. In most ways we agree, if you have the right experience and technical skills to operate comprehensive Azure managed services, running Dynamics AX, NAV and GP on Azure is an excellent Cloud ERP solution.
Dynamics on Azure - our added value
There's a lot more to managing an application on Azure than meets the eye. For example, does the Azure uptime guarantee cover more than just the Azure IaaS - does it give you and your customer peace of mind? (Spoiler alert - the answer is below). On a more practical level, deploying AX on Azure may be simple, but deployment is only one aspect of ERP on Azure. We think choosing to work with SaaSplaza comes down to two fundamental questions:
- How much do you want to do yourself? What is your core business? Do you want your business to adapt to the demands of managing ERP on Azure for the long term?
- How much can you do yourself? What is the opportunity cost to develop new skills within your current people or to recruit the right skillsets? We can give you AX without restrictions.
