Visit Website View Our Posts

Across the country, an ever-increasing number of businesses are choosing to shift their business technology to the cloud. According to Spiceworks’ research, the bulk of these companies are small and mid-sized businesses that have fewer than 100 employees.

Deciding when—and if—it’s a good idea to move your Microsoft Dynamics to the cloud is nonetheless a tough decision. Choosing cloud-based Microsoft Dynamics is a great fit for some companies, but for others, keeping their Microsoft Dynamics servers in house is a better deal for their business model.

So how do you know if moving your Microsoft Dynamics to the cloud is an advantageous move for your business?

Our quiz can help you determine which option might be best for you:



Total up your answers to determine your cloud readiness:


17 to 24 Points: Clouds Likely

Based on your answers, your business is prime for a move to the cloud. With your Microsoft Dynamics in the cloud, ongoing hardware maintenance is provided by your cloud service provider, upgrades are a part of your service contract, and licenses can be handled on a month-to-month basis. Licensing in the cloud is especially attractive if you answered “Yes” to having a seasonal workforce, as you can easily add or subtract user licenses each month so that your costs always match your needs. If you’re looking at new locations or haven’t invested in hardware just yet, opting for Microsoft Dynamics in the cloud will spare you the expense of investing in and maintaining hardware at your new office.


10 to 16 Points: Partly Cloudy

Moving your Microsoft Dynamics to the cloud has its benefits for your business, but there may be some hesitations. Perhaps your existing infrastructure hasn’t aged to a point where it is ready to be replaced, or maybe your company doesn’t have much of a need for work-from-home capabilities. If you’re not ready to shift your business to the cloud right now, this is a good time to start evaluating your options. Keep a list of questions handy, start tracking your staff workflow, interview other companies who have moved to the cloud, and gather any information about special requirements your business may have. The time to move to the cloud could be sooner than you think.


0 to 9 Points: Clouds Unlikely

You’ve just purchased all new infrastructure, hired an IT pro and settled in for the long haul with your Microsoft Dynamics. The cloud isn’t a good fit for everyone, and when you’re ready to reevaluate your technology, we’re here to help.
