If you switch from an older version of Microsoft Dynamics, there are two possible upgrade paths.
A reimplementation is a relatively smooth process. The more recent the version of Dynamics AX, NAV or CRM, the smoother the transition will be. The core of the business platform is maintained, but revamped. Most business processes can be moved 1-to-1, which allows for a lot of automation. Only new features or customizations have to be considered separately.
If you want to start out with a clean slate or if you want to try out the Dynamics software first, we draw up a business impact assessment. We will review the existing application landscape, the future objectives and the role of Dynamics 365 in this picture, together with you. The transition to Dynamics 365 happens step by step and is different for every company.
The standard applications in Dynamics 365 are very extensive, but don’t always cover every aspect of your business needs.
Depending on your sector, you may need a niche application. However, that doesn’t mean that Dynamics 365 is not for you. Dynamics 365 is an all-in-one ecosystem that you can use to build (or purchase) your own apps and to which external tools can be connected. If you want a customized application, it’s important that the code is added separately to the coding of the platform, in the form of an extension.
If you need a specific customized application, you have three options. Thanks to Microsoft PowerApps, people within the organization can build new apps or adapt existing apps with little knowledge of code. If that’s not for you then AppSource, Microsoft’s web shop, already offers a host of digital tools. And if you can’t find what you’re looking for in the e-store, you can connect an external app to the Dynamics 365 dashboard.
Performing updates to Dynamics software used to be a very complicated process for Microsoft.
Dynamics AX, NAV and CRM were open systems, so you could add your own code between each line. In contrast to these previous versions, the code of Dynamics 365 is now protected. If you want to fine-tune the software and adjust it to meet your requirements, you can create links in the form of extensions.
Thanks to Dynamics 365, Microsoft can perform updates anytime, anywhere, without obstructing your processes. This means you can always use the newest features and technological innovations. You don’t have to worry about updates and will never be behind.
