The Microsoft Dynamics ERP Cloud team has produced two new resources to help partners build a successful cloud-based business. The presentation deck Should You Consider Moving Your ERP Solution to the Cloud? helps partners understand the cloud opportunity, the delivery options, the Microsoft ERP cloud strategy, and the advantages of partnering. The Microsoft Dynamics ERP Cloud Transition Guide is designed to help drive successful conversations about Microsoft Dynamics ERP cloud-based solutions for horizontal markets.

Additionally, the Microsoft Dynamics Cloud Profitability Guide—ISV Addendum has been published on the Microsoft Partner Network portal. The Microsoft Dynamics Cloud Partner Profitability Guide outlines the fundamentals of building a cloud practice. This addendum builds on that guide, with information specifically for independent software vendors (ISVs), such as the business opportunity, the core capabilities required for success, and the business and technical impacts. This document applies to both ERP and CRM partners.
