As Microsoft transitions its business solution offerings to the Cloud based on Business Central, migrating your ISV solution for Microsoft Dynamics becomes crucial for the future of your business. Through the Microsoft ISV Development Centers, Microsoft offers support to make it happen. 

As a first step, the "Ready to Go" individual validation workshop is needed to decide which areas of your solution are ready to migrate to an app that can be promoted on Microsoft AppSource.

The "Ready to Go" program is assembled from best practices from working with ISVs that have already been validated on AppSource.  The program is designed to accelerate your ISV journey to AppSource while minimizing the investment to do so through shared experience. 

The "Ready to Go" individual validation workshop objective

To validate business and solution readiness for Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central (commercial, product, marketing, etc.) and to provide the guidance on the next steps to proceed.
