Microsoft Clarifies Dynamics Picture

Microsoft earlier this week announced a major support upgrade, clearer road maps and a new financing option for its Dynamics suite of business applications. First, the company said it will release a new version of its Dynamics products every two years, with occasional interim service packs. It also extended its premier support service to Dynamics, including 24-hour technical support.

For enterprises that don't upgrade every time a new version is released, Microsoft has announced an upgrade to its existing support policies. Specifically, it will offer five years of extended support beyond the five-year mainstream support period. This means that a new installation will see up to 10 years of support for that specific version.

Do you support a Dynamics installation? Will these new policies help you? Tell me your tale at [email protected].
