Moving From Dynamics AX To Dynamics 365 In The Cloud

Is your organization evaluating whether to transition your Dynamics AX solution to Finance and Operations apps in the cloud or stay on-premises? To determine whether this is the right move, you’ll need to understand the economic impact of your current AX solution and how this compares to Dynamics 365 in the cloud.

Based on our experience working with hundreds of organizations, we typically see the economic impact in three important areas:

#1. The total cost of ownership (TCO)

The starting point is a financial estimate of the economic value of investment against the total direct and indirect cost savings over your system lifecycle. The TCO estimate considers six cost areas to visualize the transition to the cloud.

TCO component Cloud impact
Software Cloud licensing consolidates a number of costs and offers different licensing models including pay-as-you-go monthly or annually, often shifting costs from CapEx to OpEx.
Implementation, customizations and training A move to the cloud often means reducing the level of platform customization, reducing long-term development, support, and upgrade costs. Onboarding and user support costs are typically reduced with guided processes and modern user experience.
Hardware Upfront or ongoing costs to purchase infrastructure, such as servers, networking hardware, operating systems, databases, and storage, and costs (such as electricity) are avoided. In addition, include a comparison of disaster recovery and mobile provisioning.
IT personnel The labor costs of estate maintenance are reduced (servers, databases, and other technology) and IT teams can refocus on business improvement initiatives.
Maintenance Support costs including loading fixes, patches, and updates are minimized.
Upgrades Upgrades require minimal oversight from IT personnel, and there is no additional software and minimal upgrade costs with automated background updates.

#2. Business performance improvement

A move to the cloud offers significant potential to improve business performance with improved productivity, capability, and business insights.

Organizations have often observed that increased automation, a better user experience, reduced rework, and enhanced forecasting increase company-wide productivity. In addition, real-time data analysis and streamlined processes can help enhance forecasting accuracy, improve quality, reduce waste, and prevent delays.

Dynamics 365 cloud solutions typically perform better than on-premises with operating costs, schedule compliance and on-time delivery. Overall, this can lead to improvements in the cycle time of key business processes, together with improved operational efficiency materializing in increased profit margins. The business outcomes (KPI impact) from the use of cloud ERP varies across industries.

#3. Accelerated time-to-value

The journey to the cloud brings with it huge opportunities to become more agile and respond ever-faster to changing demand.

Organizations are frequently able to continuously improve, with faster deployment, more frequent updates, and a faster capability enhancement process.

“The business is not waiting for IT anymore. We are now seen as an enabler, not a roadblock.”

In addition, businesses can adapt more quickly, scaling to new sites or geographies or improving the time to onboard newly acquired businesses. This accelerates the time to standardize and improve performance together with gaining consistent global performance insights.

Finally, organizations can become more data-driven with new insights based on more robust data gathering and real-time availability to drive innovation. These insights support improved strategic planning and new operating models.
