When it comes to implementing Microsoft Dynamics 365 Finance and Operations, the average time it takes is between 6-8 months (It can go up to 1 year depending upon the complexity of the business.). This can be broken down into three phases:

Planning and Design: During the Planning and Design phase, you'll need to gather your requirements and create a project plan. This is where you'll also decide on your implementation methodology.

Implementation and Training: During the Implementation and Training phase, you'll configure the system and train your users.

Go Live and Support: Finally, during the GO Live and Support phase, you'll go live with the system and provide ongoing support.

There isn't any determined answer to this, and it depends on the business requirement.

This process requires much research because the partner will help you from implementation to providing timely support. Before choosing the right consultant, you must match different parameters, like experience, availability of support, cost, service charges, previous work, industry type, and more.

Three deployment options are available: on-premises, cloud, and hybrid. The installation and service cost of on-premises deployment is much higher compared to cloud and hybrid deployment, and cloud deployment is the cheapest option.

Firstly, you must pay the application implementation cost, which totally depends on the business requirements. Besides this, you have to pay only a monthly subscription fee already decided by Microsoft and available on the website too.

This application can manage multi-currency using Electronic Messaging and Electronic reporting features. Also, it enables the business to share the data with regulatory authorities as required by the government in some countries.
