5 Frequently Asked Questions by Dynamics 365 Users and Sysadmins

Email | Print

The Microsoft Dynamics 365 family keeps growing. Maybe it is because of its growth, maybe it is because of its general complexity, the fact is that all sorts of different questions on Dynamics 365  keep coming up, by both users and sysadmins.

Here are 5 of the most frequently asked questions on Dynamics 365, with my view on them and some articles and videos for you to explore further.

1 - How can I reduce costs?

In general, Microsoft Dynamics 365 costs can be split into

  • Software licenses
  • Hardware
  • Cloud storage, portals and other add-ons
  • Experts and other hires for Implementation and Customization
  • Training and onboarding

If you opt for a SaaS version of Dynamics 365, I would say cloud storage will be a significant percentage of your costs. Although Dynamics 365 storage is, in fact, less expensive than its competitors, storage is the best area to cut on costs and actually get a better solution in the end. Do read on.

2 - How can I increase Dynamics 365 security?

As long as you initially set up the proper security roles in Dynamics 365, Microsoft Dynamics security should not be a big issue. But you need to be aware of security issues that affect some integrations, namely with Microsoft SharePoint. Did you know Dynamics privileges do not automatically convert into SharePoint permissions? Here is all the info you need on that.
