Preparing Your Team for an Upgrade from Dynamics AX to Dynamics 365 Finance and Supply Chain Management

By Cody Marshall | February 14, 2019

The process of getting up to speed with D365 is going to vary based on your team and which version of Dynamics AX you were previously on. In this article, we’ll take a look at each role within your organization and best practices for getting that team ready for an upgrade to Dynamics 365 Finance and Supply Chain Management.

Developers

Developers are one of the more highly impacted roles in the Dynamics 365 world. There is an entirely new architecture in place for them. The extension-based architecture will change the mindset of your developers so they’re going to want to get very familiar with it. At Stoneridge, we offer a development class quarterly that helps developers understand the new eco-system within Dynamics 365 Finance and Supply Chain Management.

What was previously called Visual Studio Team Services is now called Azure DevOps and it is the sole development environment for Finance and Supply Chain Management. Developers that are traditional C# developers are going to be more comfortable out of the chute with the new architecture, new approach, and new tools.

Technical Team

The move to the cloud may be a big change for those managing infrastructure-related maintenance today. It’s important for this team to get comfortable with Azure DevOps for all your code deployment management and environment management. This team should also become familiar with Azure – specifically the SQL database and virtual machine management.

Business Analysts & Process Subject Matter Experts

Business analysts, process subject matter experts, and end-users with AX experience will be familiar with most functionality within Financial and Supply Chain Management. However, the user interface has been updated and current AX users can take advantage of the free trial or formal training to gain hands-on experience with Dynamics 365. There are new ways to navigate the system, new processes, and new features to discover.

If you’re interested in personalized training for your team on your specific system, please contact us.
