If you are using AX 2009, start considering an upgrade today!
Mainstream support for AX 2009 will end in October 2018. You may have a system working for you right now, but it is time to start considering your options with a long-term view.
If you do not make the transition from AX 2009 soon, you may be creating costly problems and cause even greater complications for your business in the long run.
Don’t wait until your ERP system no longer runs as it used to or does not keep up with your business’ requirements.
Moving on from AX 2009 will require some groundwork to be done first. We need to review what system you have in place, what customisations need to be moved over (if possible) to Dynamics 365 or whether the standard/new functionality within Dynamics 365 will suffice.
If there are customisations that need to be done for your business within Dynamics 365, then redevelopment will be required as there is no upgrade tool available for AX 2009 to Dynamics 365.
There are however data migration tools available to support this part of the process but again there will still be some groundwork required and may in fact not be an easy process. Contact us on email@example.com so we can review what is required for your business.
AX has gone through many changes since AX 2009 with many extended features, new capabilities and enhanced functionalities and has yet again gone through a big transition in 2016.
Traditional AX as we know it now has a lot more to offer and falls under the Dynamics 365 product suite. Dynamics 365 is the next generation cloud service launched by Microsoft and brings together CRM and ERP functionalities, making available a host of integrated business modules.
Key reasons to make the transition
- Greater functionality
- Eliminate hardware upgrade costs by moving to the cloud
- Reduced customisations
- Long-term solution
