Organizations using Microsoft Dynamics 365 CRM generate a considerable quantity of data daily. Although Dynamics 365 CRM subscription provides 20 GB of total storage and 2 GB of data per licensed user, the storage capacity becomes woefully inadequate as your business scales. Buying additional capacity is expensive. Currently, CRM database storage costs £33.91 per GB per month and file capacity costs £1.70 per GB monthly.
Managing your Dynamics 365 CRM storage capacity effectively becomes essential. And to do that, first, you need to analyze consumption patterns and needs of your storage space.
To get to the core of this issue, Inogic conducted a poll to identify key aspects that consume an organization’s CRM space.
As is seen in the poll, File Attachments consume most of the CRM space. Notes, email attachments, sales literature notes, etc. very quickly consume all your CRM space. Dynamics 365 CRM by itself is not the strongest suite for attachment and document management.
We also tried to find out how CRM users are currently tackling this issue.
As many as 42% of voters delete their large attachment files. Well, that’s one way to keep your storage space free, but sometimes deleting critical attachments may not always be practical. Another 12% of users are buying additional storage, and as we already mentioned above, buying additional storage space is expensive.
The need of the hour as emphasized by 38% of voters is a cost-effective file and storage management app.
