Over the last few years, Microsoft has been making significant investments in the cloud. Unfortunately, that means that Windows Server 2008 and SQL Service 2008 will reach the end of support. But don’t worry, Microsoft has created a pathway for companies ready to make the switch to the cloud.

Why should I make the switch to the cloud?

Moving to the cloud is no longer an intimidating transition. Companies of all sizes have made the switch to the cloud, and we don’t see that trend slowing down any time soon.

Here are a few trends that are noteworthy:

  •          In 2016, 16.1 ZB of data was generated. In 2025, 163 ZBs of data will be generated.
  •           More than 80% of organizations now adopt cloud-first strategies as part of an overall digital transformation
  •           Investment in AI, top of mind for many companies, increase by an astounding 300% in 2017

 

SQL 2008

 

When is the deadline and what happens if I do nothing?

It’s better that you act now and not later, time is running out. Extended support for SQL Server 2008 and 2008 R2 ends on July 9, 2019 and Windows Server 2008 and 2008 R2 ends on January 14, 2020. These deadlines are around the corner; you need to give yourself time to migrate and explore your options.

If you decide to do nothing, then be prepared for no security updates, compliance concerns and missed innovation opportunities.

What are your options?

You have options, for both on-premise and cloud migrations. If you plan to stay on-premise, you can upgrade to Windows Server 2016 and get cloud and DevOps ready. If you decide to move the cloud, you can migrate Windows Server 2008 and 2008 R2 workloads to Azure VM.

What's Next for Dynamics GP?

Written by

Dynamics GP continues to thrive, both for on-premise and cloud customers. Microsoft Dynamics GP is a mature solution with over 45,000 customers around the world, so it isn’t going away anytime soon. However, Dynamics GP isn’t immune from Microsoft’s consistent push towards the cloud.

So why move GP to the cloud?

Here are some reasons why GP customers move to the cloud:

  •           They need to invest in new hardware to support new versions of GP
  •           They are concerned about backups, recovery, security and 24/7 remote access
  •           They are not current with Microsoft on your maintenance and want to add users/capabilities to the system
  •           They are looking for better access to information/reporting (GP2018 required for Power BI)

So what can we expect in future releases of Dynamics GP?

First, Dynamics GP releases and development will continue from Microsoft. The current roadmap is projecting two additional version releases. This clearly indicates a commitment by Microsoft considering these are typically released every two years. Customers should expect various user community requested enhancements and fixes.

Second, the Intelligent Edge will continue to be a focus for Microsoft as they allow for experimentation with AI learning, Power Apps, and the Common Data Service options used within Dynamics 365.
