On your way to the cloud: The Microsoft universal code initiative

Everyone in the IT world is talking about the cloud. And Microsoft is leading the way, with its Universal Cloud Initiative. Customers who are Universal Code compliant are ideally set up for the cloud, but are still free to run the ERP system in-house (OnPrem). But be careful - you need to take action. The YAVEON guide explains what this is all about and what you need to do.

    What is the universal code initiative?

    To put it simply, Microsoft’s goal is to make Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central available in the cloud - and to make it easy and flexible. To clear the way, customers and Microsoft partners such as YAVEON must standardize their solutions. If the source code of products or customizations used in the project is not cloud-ready, additional licensing costs will be incurred in the future. The initiative starts on April 1, 2022.

    Who is affected?

    All companies that license Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central, or perform a license transition or license merge on or after April 1, 2022 will be affected. Microsoft will start technical testing in the first quarter of 2022, and the affected instances will face additional charges from 2023 onwards.

    What do you need to do?

    As a solution partner of Microsoft, we have been fulfilling the requirements with our products for a long time and will be happy to support our customers with experience and tools in the future. This included adaptations to conform with Universal Code. In addition, we will ensure that our partners' add-ons for customer projects also meet the requirements.

    What is the benefit?

    Bit by bit, the IT world will move even more in the direction of the cloud. Even though the Universal Code Initiative creates work at first, it gives all customers the freedom to choose the installation form that suits them. This makes the ERP system future-proof, easy to update, and flexible to use.

    What are the advantages of a cloud-based ERP system?

    • Software as a Service (SaaS): Service providers provide the entire infrastructure. This eliminates the need for in-house installation and server hardware.
    • The system is available moments after registration
    • The service provider takes care of maintenance, servicing, backups, and further development  
    • Payment is possible as a monthly or annual subscription  
    • Distribution of total costs over several years  
    • The provider is responsible for the reliability and the data security of the systems
