Why migrate to the cloud?
There are several reasons why a business might choose to migrate its Dynamics GP applications to the cloud. Here are just a few:
- Scalability: With cloud computing, businesses can easily scale their applications up or down as needed, without having to invest in additional hardware or infrastructure.
