Microsoft 2017 Blue DynamicChoosing your cloud provider – what to consider
11. 02. 2017
These days more and more companies move their data to cloud. Some companies use just one cloud provider while others use two or even more providers. It does not necessarily matter how many of them a company has as long as they are chosen carefully.

Companies usually leave their cloud providers because of either a lack of satisfaction regarding the cloud services provided or unfulfilled expectations. In any case, before choosing the right cloud provider, it is best to consider the following:

  1. Who holds the financial responsibility in case of trouble? Is the cloud provider too small to be able to pay penalties or too large so you won´t be able to put any real pressure on them?
  2. How financially strong is your cloud provider? Remember, you´re planning to work with them for years.
  3. Be sure to understand what the promising SLA really means. It might not guarantee the up-time promised.
  4. Remember that you may leave the cloud provider sometime in the future. Make a deal on who owns your data and in what format you should get it back.

ResearchGER: A straight way to reduce costs of Dynamics AX7 customizations
27. 09. 2016

According to Microsoft, the most commonly customized parts of Dynamics AX are data exports into electronic formats such as electronic payments, tax exports, Intrastat and more. AX partners are often asked, for example, to modify the format of the SEPA Credit Transfer so that exports meet the requests of local banks.

With the new version of Dynamics AX there was introduced a new configurable tool named GER (Generic Electronic Reporting) for enabling the possibility to define or modify export formats without programming. The target group are customer‘s key users or AX partner’s consultants. Definition of export formats is done via visual editor using Excel-like formulas. Result is acceleration in exports definition and thus lowering the cost. Furthermore, you don’t need to wait for the deployment of a new AX version to the production environment – the exports defined using GER can be used immediately.
