You can use Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central (NAV) on-premise or in the cloud. For both models, you can use the platform either by buying the license (perpetual) or subscribing to it.
If you choose perpetual licensing, you will need to pay an additional service renewal fee annually (16% of the total license value). If you choose the subscription model, you won’t need to pay this fee.
Cloud minimizes the service and maintenance costs while decreasing the need for an infrastructure investment. This creates an advantage for the companies who did not do any infrastructure investment yet.
Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central (NAV) provides the same rich ERP experience on-premise or in the cloud. You can choose the model that fits your company’s current needs and adapt as she grows. This helps you to keep the costs under control.
Cloud offers significant savings by eliminating hardware and infrastructure costs and reducing demand on onsite IT staff. And since Dynamics 365 Business Central (NAV) runs on Microsoft Azure or virtually on any private hosting system, you can shop for the cloud provider that suits your business from a technological and cost standpoint.
With Subscription Licensing you don’t own the software license. You subscribe to it and you attain the usage rights for a specific term (1 month minimum). In short, you can use the software as long as you maintain your monthly subscription payments. You don’t need to pay any other license related costs.
Infotek recommends subscription with the cloud.
