Business Transformation in the Cloud Era

The need to deploynew functionality across the enterprise has never been more urgent.Whether the requirement is to transform internal business processes, improve interactions with customers, empower employees, or manage a more efficient supply chain, business decision makers across the global economy are being tasked with choosing and implementing new software and services at an unprecedented rate.

The enthusiasm for meeting the needs of a transforming global economy, however,is often tempered with a host of practical concerns. Whilefor the most partthe path to transformation liesin the cloud and in the servicesthatcloud platforms can provide, many companies are concerned with the complexity of movingor upgradingfrom an on-premisesto a cloud infrastructure. Simultaneously, other companies are struggling to understand how to match their specific business requirements to the different cloudvendors’ services and their deployment and operations models.

One of the reasons for this disconnect is that decision makers often fail to take a broad enough view of what is needed to move their companies forward. Many look at their choices as a matter of acquiring next generation functionality in individual domains such as ERP, CRM and HCM, with the goal ofdoing the same things faster, better, and cheaper.It’s a worthyset of goals, albeit one that can also be self-limiting.The reason is that while transforming a business can’t happen without moving forward in these individual domains, transforming in the 21stcentury also requires a mix of new and improved business processes running on a modern infrastructure that is itself adaptable to change.These new processes need to be a mix of best practices and business-specific functionality optimized by the cloud infrastructure they run on. Indeed, the ability to use the cloud and the advanced processes, services,and technologies the cloud can providebecomes as important as the improvements in the functionality of any individual domain.

This means that understanding the interplay between business processes, software and the cloud is more important than ever before; and understanding which vendor can best put these three elements to work moving a company forward to meet its specific requirements is the only way to overcome misgivingsabout how, when, and why implementing in the cloud, whether as an upgrade or via a net-new, greenfield implementation, is the best way forward.

This report will look at how an understanding of Microsoft’s Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations offering, when combined with the company’s Azure cloud services, Office 365 productivity software, Power BI analytics, and other technology and services, can help drive successful transformations and provide a broader and more meaningful justification for moving to the cloud.

Dynamics 365 Strategies for Success

The need for businesses to innovate in order to more efficiently manage opportunities and interact with customers, employees,and other stakeholders has never been greater. Moving operations and services to the cloud is clearly the path forward. Many companies, however,struggle with how to effectively shift their businesses to the cloud, and behind that struggle is the challenge of acquiringnext generation functionality that moves themforwardin light of their historically siloed business operations.

It’s important to recognize that transforming a business can’t happen without moving forward across the entire company, not just individual domains like ERPandCRM. The focus needs to be on the interplay between business processes, software,and the cloud. Understanding which vendor can best put these three elements to work,moving a company forward to meet its specific requirements,is the only way to overcome misgivings about how, when, and whyimplementing in the cloud, whether as an upgrade or via a net-new, greenfield implementation, is the best way forward.Ideally, the vendor chosen to fulfill this role needs to be able to support an integrated set of applications and processes that deliverthe right functionality on an innovative cloud platform that itself is continually evolving to meet new customer requirements.

Enterprise Applications Consulting believes that Microsoft is a leader in meeting these complex needs.In particular,itsDynamics 365 for Finance and Operations, running on the Azure cloud, is ideally suited to support the transformative needs of the modern enterprise. The ability of Dynamics 365 to offer an integrated set of core enterprise functionswhile drawing on an active partner network to deliver last-mile, industry capabilities sets it apart from its competitors. The continuous improvement inherent in the Azure cloud is enhanced by its underlying services, and the innovations that Microsoft develops for its vast customer base can add highly valuable new capabilities for the Finance and Operations customer. The ability of Finance and Operations to support new business opportunities based on new levels of connectivity and collaboration across an increasing number of stakeholders is supported by the success of a growing customer base across a wide range of industries and geographies.

When the rest of the Microsoft stack is brought into play –Azure, Office 365, the Power Platform, and new innovations like HoloLens–the result presents a unique opportunity for companies to successfully plan and execute a vision of business transformation that is uniquely their own,while leveraging the best practices and standardization inherent in the cloud. This report is intended toshowcase how the mix of applications and cloud-based services that is unique to Dynamics Finance and Operations positions Dynamics in the context of the larger enterprise software market,andalso servesthe specific needs of individual companies. For companies looking for the greatest possiblesynergy between application, technology, and the cloud, the Dynamics 365 family, and Finance and Operations in particular, should definitely be on the short list. Regardless of when it makes sense to pull the trigger and move to the cloud, the time to plan is now.
