On-Premise Dynamics 365 Enterprise System Requirements

On-Premise Dynamics 365
Dynamics 365 On Premise System Requirements


After much anticipation, Microsoft has released the system requirements for Dynamics 365 Enterprise for Finance and Operations. This is the June 2017 document, and it's sure to be updated with more client (workstation) requirements, but we have been clamoring for Microsoft to release this document.  Some of our customers and prospects do not want to migrate to SaaS or the cloud.  This release confirms Microsoft's commitment to accommodating all deployment scenarios, not forcing its customers to either the cloud or on-premise.  The software will be available for purchase on-prem or as a SaaS model.  More about that in future articles.
