Dynamics 365 Finance and Operations

Microsoft Dynamics AX has served many companies well for years, providing a strong foundation for managing their enterprise resource planning (ERP) needs. However, with the rapid advancements in technology and the increased demand for cloud-based solutions, it’s time for businesses to consider migrating to Microsoft Dynamics 365 Finance and Operations (F&O).

In this blog, we’ll explore the benefits of upgrading your AX legacy systems to Dynamics 365 F&O and the steps you can take to modernise your organization’s ERP environment. By making the move to a cloud-based environment, your organisation will benefit from:

  1. Enhanced features and functionality: Dynamics 365 F&O offers a host of new and improved features over AX, including advanced analytics, AI-driven insights, and seamless integration with other Microsoft products such as Office 365 and Power BI.
  2. Scalability: Dynamics 365 F&O can scale as your organisation grows to ensure you always have the resources to manage operations as effectively as possible.
  3. Improved security: Because Dynamics 365 F&O is built on Microsoft’s Azure cloud platform it delivers integrated security measures while adhering to all compliance requirements to ensure your data is always protected.
  4. Reduced IT overhead: By migrating to a cloud-based solution, your company can cut down on IT infrastructure costs and all the associated maintenance and support.

Upgrading modernisation

Once you’ve decided to go the Dynamics 365 F&O route, that’s when the modernisation process can begin. However, you need to keep the following things in mind:

  1. Assess your current AX system: Start by conducting a thorough review of your existing AX environment to identify any customisations, integrations, and data migration requirements. This will help you develop a comprehensive migration plan and ensure a smooth transition to Dynamics 365 F&O.
  2. Choose the right partner: By engaging with a Microsoft certified partner with extensive experience in AX migrations, you can simplify the process and avoid any potential pitfalls.
  3. Train your team: Ensure your employees are trained and prepared to use the new Dynamics 365 F&O system. This will facilitate a smoother transition and help your organization fully leverage the benefits of the new ERP platform.

Making the move

Migrating from an on-premises AX solution to Dynamics 365 F&O in the cloud offers several benefits. These include:

  1. Anytime, anywhere access: Cloud-based solutions provide greater accessibility, enabling your employees to access critical data and applications from any device, at any time.
  2. Automatic updates: Dynamics 365 F&O is continually updated with new features and enhancements, ensuring your business always has access to the latest and most advanced ERP tools at its disposal.
  3. Cost savings: Moving from an on-premises solution to a cloud-based one can result in significant cost savings in terms of infrastructure, maintenance, and support.
