Ground to Cloud Migration
Migrate Dynamics GP to Azure for a Hybrid Approach
With our migration services, you can keep enjoying the benefits of GP while taking advantage of what Azure has to offer. This migration is perfect for companies that:
- Want to experience the benefits of the cloud.
- Want their data to be more secure and accessible anywhere, at any time.
- Have systems that are reaching the end of their subscription and don’t want the expense of replacing it.
- Are looking for an external IT team to save money because they do not have internal GP expertise.
- Are ready for a GP upgrade (This is an excellent opportunity to migrate to the cloud).
Aging Servers & Migrations
With aging servers and support ending on a few operating systems, those with older servers need to decide to buy new servers or go to the cloud. If you are currently in this state and need to make a decision, we highly recommend you upgrade to the cloud. We will work with your team from the beginning to the end of the migration, making sure your company is successful in the process.
System requirements are something to be considered when planning your upgrade. With Microsoft ending support to Microsoft GP 2015 in April 2020, this means no more updates will release for GP 2015. If you are currently using this version or want to get ahead, now is an excellent time to plan your GP software and server upgrade.
Disaster Recovery Planning
Imagine a disaster where your business systems are down due to flooding, fires, cyber-attacks, etc. This can happen, and the truth is, a lot of businesses aren’t ready for these situations. When we migrate your entire GP system to Azure, you can keep everything running smoothly. Even when your on-premise servers are unable to keep up with outages, Azure steps in, and you can still access all your critical data.
