If we specifically talk about the small or medium sized firms, they would surely not like these additional expense.
A little expensive

Especially when it comes to adding extra portal sites either for QA, development or even for user acceptance testing, there is a heavy cost involved.
Also, there is a repeated monthly cost which is tough to bare specially by the small enterprises.
Also, when it comes to making any amendments to the web portal, it comes with additional cost.
You would need to spend some amount of money to add on a specific functionality. Simply, because you will have to find a programmer who masters Dynamics 365.
