The decision to move your mission-critical business applications to the cloud is no longer IF but WHEN. Chances are you’re already successfully running applications in the cloud today. Cloud-based payroll, HR benefits, marketing automation and email are amongst the many available solutions that companies have been managing online for years. Historically companies hesitated to move business applications like GP, SL, NAV, AX and CRM to the cloud, but to stay competitive and drive business continuity, the time to migrate is now. Regardless of your company size or industry, recent events have shown us how important moving to the cloud is for all businesses. As companies went to being fully remote for months, some found that their on-premises solutions could not accommodate a virtual work force and caused unnecessary problems with day-to-day operations. Real-time secure access to data, regular back up provisions, remote access for all users are just some of the cloud benefits. In this session, learn best practices on how building an effective migration strategy and plan will support a successful move to the cloud and help maximize your business application investments.
