Seamless Delivery Of Business Applications

Microsoft have put into place a global response plan, specifically for their Azure cloud. This has been done to ensure a reliable and continual service within their cloud operations. From that, they’re ensuring Dynamics 365 Business Central as well as their Microsoft Power Platform incident response teams are ready and waiting with the tools necessary to help you should you need it.

Along with Microsoft’s response plans, you’ll also find that D365 experts have plans in place to ensure you receive the critical updates necessary. We understand that our services and the Dynamics 365 Business Central software is essential for your business to continue to run smoothly which is why we’re here to ensure you receive the critical updates necessary.

Relaxed Deadlines

Microsoft is also doing their best to reduce any pressure on their customers by relaxing deadlines on updates. The details on this will vary with each service however, they’ve made it abundantly clear they intend to reduce the pressure felt by their customers through support and deprecation deadlines.

An example we can highlight at the moment would be the fact that they’re extending the early access opt-in. The reason behind this is due to the fact that many have now moved to the minimum business continuity model. As such, they’re supporting the situation by extending the early access opt-in, giving businesses time to test and validate the features before they’re deployed this May.

They’ve also made things a lot easier for clients by simplifying the ability to pause updates as and when necessary for the likes of Dynamics 365 Finance, Supply Chain Management and Commerce etc.

They’re also offering an extended window from 30 days to 60 days, with regards to the April 2020 Dynamics 365 Business Central automatic update, for existing customers and partners.
