Siebel to MS Dynamics CRM Migration
The enterprise is changing and with it, so is the way in which businesses manage their enterprise. The Customer Relationship Management (CRM) landscape has evolved and businesses are looking for more robust solutions. These new solutions are moving organizations from on-premises CRM systems to those in the cloud. As the shift to the cloud takes place, it can pose numerous challenges. Despite the challenges, the landscape is evolving and moving to the cloud is inevitable.
On-premises CRM Solutions Trail Behind
CRM systems have changed quite a bit over the years, leaving traditional organizations unable to meet the needs of the new enterprise. on-premises CRM solutions tend to be cumbersome to setup and maintain and call for high upfront licensing fees, often resulting in businesses investing heavily in bulky solutions. Nevertheless, Siebel CRM has long served as a viable CRM solution for many organizations because of the completeness of its solution. However, as more and more customer relationship management systems enter the business landscape, cloud-based CRM are Cloud-based. Cloud-based or web-based CRM solutions are easier to manage than traditional CRM systems as they do not require hiring an outside IT professional to monitor or maintain the infrastructure they run on. Unlike Siebel CRM, online solutions such as Microsoft Dynamics CRM offer mobility, simplicity, and easier integration with numerous third-party applications and services. With their lightweight deployment and lower upfront fees, cloud CRM solutions are becoming the preference.
MS Dynamics CRM Solution
Microsoft Dynamics CRM is a web-based application that offers businesses of all sizes the tools they need to successfully and efficiently manage customers and prospective customers. Because of its cloud-based structure, MS Dynamics CRM empowers users by providing real-time access to customer information and data on numerous platforms and applications. Additionally, as more and more businesses are employing numerous cloud applications and services to manage the enterprise, MS Dynamics CRM enables easy integration with third-party ERP, HR, finance and marketing applications such as Salesforce, Taleo, Marketo, and more. Simplified connectivity to such applications and services empower businesses to more effectively and efficiently run businesses processes, allowing them to deliver more.
