If a small, flat square of colored paper can be folded and transformed via origami techniques into a graceful crane, what can Digital Transformation (DT) of your ERP system do for your company?

It bears remembering that the 3-D crane is still just a single piece of paper. And also that no scissors were involved in the transformative process. The square area of the original piece of paper that formed the crane is the same as the square of the crane. In other words, nothing was lost in the process. Indeed, much was gained. The crane that emerged has greater depth and complexity than a sheet of paper.

What’s more, you can unfold the crane and transform that same small, colored square of paper into any number of little animals, as well as boats, hats, boxes, hearts … Origami experts have even been known to create reasonable facsimiles of well-known figures such as Icarus and King Tut.


What Does Digital Transformation Mean to You as a Microsoft Dynamics GP Client?

The point I’m trying to get at here, relative to Digital Transformation is this: With a solid foundation such as Microsoft Dynamics GP, you can easily digitalize your ERP system without compromising the trusted foundation you’ve been using for years. And you would have so much to gain from that transformation.

Whether you move from on-premise Dynamics GP to GP in the cloud, or from Dynamics GP to Microsoft Dynamics 365, some of the benefits of this Digital Transformation are:

  • Eliminate hardware and infrastructure costs
  • Eliminate server maintenance costs
  • Reduced IT spend
  • Increased security
  • Increased uptime
  • Automated back-ups
  • Reliable disaster recovery

Moving to Microsoft Dynamics 365 has the additional benefits of increased connectivity and integrations. Dynamics 365 natively connects:

  • OneDrive
  • Outlook
  • Excel
  • PowerApps
  • Microsoft Flow
  • Office 365
  • Skype
  • Power BI
  • Cortana Intelligence, and
  • Azure Machine Learning

Even more features and greater functionality will be available in the forthcoming release of Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central on April 2nd.
