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:
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
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:
- 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.
- 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.
- 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:
