If you are considering implementing Dynamics 365 it can be a tough task to get your head around Dynamics Licensing type, options and structure.
Whether you’re licensing a Dynamics 365 environment for the first time, renewing an existing licensing subscription or managing the migration of a legacy on premise environment into the cloud – Alletec can help you figure it out.
We need to carefully choose the licenses depending on scale and size of your organization as it impacts license types and app selection.
Dynamics 365 constitutes of various apps, and you can pick what your business needs. Following are the most important apps:
With the new year, Microsoft came up with refined pricing structure for the Dynamics Apps and introduced Base and Attach licensing models. In order to license Apps, customer first or Base license must be the highest priced license for the user. Every full user must have a Base license.
Users requiring multiple core Business Applications may purchase as many Attach SKUs as needed at a reduced price. Each Attach license can only be assigned to a user with a qualifying prerequisite Base license. Always refer below license chart for base and attach SKU’s mapping and minimum seat count
Some apps have a Professional and an Enterprise version. Here are some differences in the two versions:
Customer Service Apps: Professional license gives access to Core functionality like lead creation, mobile access, Case management etc. But with Enterprise you get access to reports, chats, dashboards, define and configure every aspect of the system to your needs.
Similarly, in Sales App: Professional license give full access to core Sales functionality including Leads, Opportunities, contacts, quotes but with Enterprise you get access to Unified Service Desk, Embedded intelligence, knowledgebase and many other features.
But with these two license types comes a complication which needs to be understood cautiously. The Enterprise and Professional applications are not meant to be combined within an organization and may not be deployed on the same instance; however, they may be deployed on the same tenant.
Apart from the above-mentioned apps, Microsoft has also introduced supporting apps and add ons
Microsoft has a vast pool when it comes to licensing, not only there are many apps to license according to requirement but there are different channels to procure those licenses depending on customer’s current licenses, need, scope and financial capability. Microsoft offer different channels to customer to buy licenses.
