Key Things To Consider For Your Dynamics 365 Migration Program

Business strategies have been evolving and more so rapidly in the last 2 years following the pandemic. From consumer behaviour to supply chains, pandemic has impacted every aspect of business and thus compelling enterprises to transform and modernise to meet the needs.

Organisations that have migrated from on-premise versions to Cloud based Microsoft Dynamics 365 are already enjoying its benefits. However this migration or transition is not always simple and requires time, resources and skill and above all the buy-in from all stakeholders.

One of the first steps in this journey is migration assessment that will help you understand the value of cloud migration and how to get there covering benefits of moving from on-premise solution to Cloud, identify key business objectives & how the functionalities in Dynamics 365 deliver them, optimisation of migration process to help in reduction of effort and costs involved.

The other challenge being choosing the right partner for this migration. Selecting the right partner for Dynamics AX or CRM migration is paramount to the success of the program. In this article we look at couple of key points to consider for this selection:

Partner with right skill-sets:
The migration program can be time taking depending on the complexity involved in your existing on-premise solution whether it is Dynamics AX or CRM. Depending on amount of customisations and data your current system has these need to be assessed thoroughly and possibly if the partner has the tools for assessment, it is a great start. Use of such productivity enhancement tools can be very useful in terms of establishing budgets and timeframes for the implementation of Dynamics 365.

Partner's credentials and availability of skills and resources to implement the solution are other important things to consider. Other aspect important to consider is post go-live support to ensure partner capabilities are aligned to support your business roadmap.

Industry Knowledge:
Migrating to Dynamics 365 is one of the key steps for your digital transformation journey while meeting your upcoming needs and challenges however depending on your industry and processes it varies significantly. The business requirements are different for a retailer to a manufacturer or a services company. The chosen partner should have industry knowledge and the required functional and technical skills to meet your needs.
