We have had a number of new prospects and existing customers coming to us with this very question.

A customer recently approached me asking about putting their Dynamics NAV database into Azure but they were concerned about their connection speeds in their office (a contended broadband line).
Having looked at the available information from Microsoft the only information I could find was on blogs dating back to NAV 2009, which were quite generic. They did however make the useful point that if you’ve got high latency then it does have a major impact on the speed of the system (go figure).

In the latest of our Manufacturing Matters interviews, we spoke to the MD of TDSi about his pragmatic approach to the current climate, not just politically but also with regard to ever evolving technologies. Currently running an integrated system, hosted in the cloud, John discussed with us the Internet of Things (IoT) and how it is changing business models from that of a product supplier to service suppliers. John also spoke about the holes in UK education meaning that not enough young talent is coming through - with Brexit approaching he is open to the idea of moving more of the business into Europe to satisfy their export business, if required.
