How to Deploy Microsoft Dynamics GP

In the past there was only one way to deploy Microsoft Dynamics GP – on a server at your location. However, now you have choices including the traditional on-premises model or a hosted model.  Each has their own advantages and disadvantages and price points that you need to consider based on your company requirements.

Traditional On-Premises

Purchase the software and deploy at your location on your own server. You can choose to install on individual workstations or connect via a Terminal Services or Citrix connection which allows remote access.

Pros: You maintain control of your data at all times and you are not dependent on an internet connection. Usually, this option offers the lowest Total Cost of Ownership.

Cons: You are responsible for all server maintenance, backups and other IT services.  Software and hardware purchase can mean a large initial investment of funds.     


Hosted – Bring Your Own License (BYOL)

Purchase the software and pay a monthly fee to have it run on servers at a secure data center either on a shared or dedicated server. Access it over a secure internet connection.

Pros: You own the software but you do not need to purchase or maintain hardware infrastructure.

Cons: Access is dependent on an internet connection.
