Where Should Your BC Installation Go? Know Your Options!

Thursday, October 8th  from 10:40-11:30 am
Presented by Gino Pack

When we were setting up Dynamics NAV environments, it was always on-premise. There was no decision to make on where to install the system. Enter the era of Business Central, a new platform with new cloud-based options. Many companies have questions …

What option is best for us? Should we go SaaS (Software as a Service)? Should we remain on-premise? Are those my only options?

During this presentation, we will explain these options, highlighting the positives and negatives of both approaches. You will come away ready to make an informed decision on where to set up your Business Central environment.

This session will be available for CPE credits pending completion of session survey post event.
