A Microsoft Partner to assist the Dynamics AX to Dynamics 365 F&O Migration

After consulting with Microsoft experts and understanding the technicalities of migrating from AX to F&O, we advise you to consider a third-party Microsoft-certified partner.

A migration supported by internal teams is an option that organizations can assess. However, dedicated resources are required to study the proposed application and its technicalities which can be very time-consuming. The integration process is at risk if the team discovers any errors until engineers figure out and apply a solution. Any team has many hurdles to overcome, especially if they have limited experience in application migration.

Microsoft implementation partners have years of experience and have seen numerous risks and errors and how to fix them. Hiring a Microsoft migration partner is the best decision for seamless and trouble-free migration.
