Dynamics 365 is a full SaaS solution accessed in the Microsoft Azure cloud. Dynamics GP, on the other hand, can be deployed on-premises. It is also available hosted by partners, on Microsoft Azure, or by subscription pricing in a partners private cloud.
Dynamics 365 is a great option for companies that lack the hardware or IT support for an on-premises solution or that need to frequently scale the number of users for their solution.
Companies that prefer to keep their ERP solution on their own servers will find the on-premises deployment of Dynamics GP to better suit their needs.
