What is the difference between deploying Dynamics 365 Business Central on-premises vs SaaS?
Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central offers a choice of deployment options: SaaS and On-premise. When you host Business Central on-premise, you’ll have more control over the software. This could be on servers maintained by you or even on a cloud based server that is provided by a third party (Platform-as-a-Service PaaS). However, a high level of IT expertise is needed to support the system and keep it secure.
Software-as-a-Service (Saas) is a true public cloud. One of the main benefits is that you pay for licenses, hosting, and any other costs in one single package price – making budgeting clear and simple. Updates and upgrades are automatically undertaken by Microsoft, meaning that you are always running on the latest version of the software.
The key benefit of Business Central is its ability to move from one platform to another as your business grows and its requirements change.
