Getting the Most from Dynamics CRM Online -- Benefits and Cloud Thinking

The following are highlights from a March 2015 InfoStrat seminar on "Getting the Most from Dynamics CRM Online" in Washington, DC.  Here is a video highlight from the introductory section of the presentation:


We've all heard about the benefits of moving to the cloud, such as cost savings, security, disaster recovery, and flexibility.
 
 
 
Microsoft is making some of its largest investments in the cloud.  
 
 
Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online gives you a number of benefits, such as:
  1. Always up to date with the latest versions and patches
  2. Eliminate costs of hardware infrastructure
  3. Supports multiple environments (such as dev, test and production)
  4. Great flexibility and quick deployment
  5. Support for government security standards
  6. State of the art data center



 
Microsoft has recently launched a special version of Dynamics CRM Online which is for U.S. government customers.  Dynamics CRM Online for Government is hosted at data centers in the United States and meets rigorous security requirements.
 
 
 



CRM Online for Government is part of the overall Microsoft Government Cloud which also includes Azure and Office 365.



To really get the most out of the Microsoft cloud, you need to think big.  If all you're going to do is duplicate your current infrastructure in the cloud, you are not being ambitious enough.  Try and think of ways that the cloud lets you do things that were difficult or impossible to do with traditional on premise hardware.
