6 myths about Dynamics AX upgrading that you need to let go

AX customers have some fears about upgrading from Dynamics AX to Dynamics 365 or supply chain or Dynamics finance and operations. This is why they need to know about the myths and talk about them to overcome their fears and start upgrading before it is too late.

1. “The current Dynamics AX version works perfectly – why should I change it?”

You don’t have to, but are you aware of the new functions?

We don’t think so…

Have a one-to-one conversation with your consultant. Let them help you understand the reasons for migration and personalize the benefits of both Dynamics 365 and Dynamics supply chain for you. When you highlight the benefits and get to know the way these benefits will help you ease your business processes, you will be more clear on the point that why your organization is in a need of migration. Some of the main features include: 

Explore the features that will help you save time and resources too and while you go through the dynamics 365 upgrade process, you will understand it more. 

2. “We’ve upgraded before, and it was a failure”

You didn’t get the profit from your business in one go. You had a long journey before you finally succeeded in establishing the empire with revenue. The same risk you are taking here. Failure is part of the business. Yet, this doesn’t mean that we cannot try it again. All you need is more thorough planning for implementing the new upgrade.

Draw a roadmap with the help of your Dynamics 365 experts and consultants. Get it all documented, be aware of your risks, and prepare for the consequences in advance. Further, to ensure a better and more informed plan, you can also get the training for all the stakeholders. Ultimately, it is all about PLANNING!

3. “The Cloud version is more expensive than on-premises”

Remember that the on-premises require servers and sometimes a lot of it. So, you will spend more money buying servers if you choose on-premises.

On the other hand, when you go for the cloud, you save a lot on both servers and licenses. Moreover, there is no cost for room server maintenance.

4. "I'll lose Dynamics AX licenses"

No, you can transition your licenses into the current licenses of Dynamics 365. The new licenses you take will be offered as the Dynamics 365 ERP.

Moreover, the major advantage you will have for upgrading to Dynamics 365 will be that the licensing structure for D365 is flexible and simpler. Besides that, you will have fewer licenses to worry about as compared to Dynamics AX.

5. "The upgrade will disrupt our operations"

No. Microsoft has made it a point to provide code upgrade resources to make custom code migration easier.

The code upgrade tools in Microsoft dynamics lifecycle services (LCS) help analyze the effort required for an update before committing. It automatically migrates code to the current edition and streamlines the process by automating merging and documenting tasks that would otherwise need manual merging.

Because Dynamics AX 2012 R3 has a comparable data structure to Dynamics 365, it will require less refactoring than previous versions. Some customizations may now be covered by standard functionality and won’t need to be moved or re-coded. So, in the end, your operations can continue as usual, and the system will upgrade when it is ready.

6. "I'm worried about my Report and BI content"

You don’t have to; you will only need a custom code. Ask your consultant, and they will guide you about the three-step update procedure, including steps from planning to validation and implementation.

They know all kinds of Microsoft tools that can make migration smooth and easy for you.
