Upgrade Dynamics AX to Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations

The release of Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations, Enterprise Edition may have left you wondering whether your customer’s outdated solution can be upgraded to the latest version. There is a lot of information out there with both affirming and opposing views of possible upgrade paths.

We, the 1ClickFactory Dynamics AX team, can assure you that any Dynamics AX solution can be upgraded to the latest version with the help of our expert team. The main consideration for your upgrade  is which is the most beneficial and accurate upgrade path to take for your specific solution. Therefore, we recommend planning and executing a Dynamics AX Upgrade in this order:

  1. Request a BestPath Assessment (including Upgrade Assessment);

Dynamics AX Extensions Development

Become future-proof: move your Dynamics AX modifications to Extensions

Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations, Enterprise Edition is based on a new development technique where modifications – known as Extensions - don’t overlay the baseline model elements of the standard application. While Microsoft has always encouraged Dynamics AX Partners to follow the best practice of developing customizations as Extensions, most modifications were still developed using an overlayering technique (i.e. standard objects were modified to achieve desired functionality). Unfortunately, this creates an upgrading issue to Dynamics 365 Enterprise where customizations can only be implemented as Extensions.

To upgrade Dynamics AX to the newest version, you need to upgrade your customizations to Extensions. You will only have one year to develop customizations the old way (i.e. using overlayers) on the latest version. We are already future-proofing your upgrades by upgrading our Partners’ solutions based on the newest technology.

Make upgrading Dynamics AX reports to SSRS faster and easier

We don’t need to tell you that upgrading reports in Microsoft Dynamics AX 2009 and 2012 can be extremely time consuming. Uncovering statistics for the usage of each report would help you decrease the scope of the upgrade. To avoid this issue 1ClickFactory created a report usage tracking tool, which enables Dynamics AX Partner to collect customer solution report usage statistics to identify SSRS transformation needs based on actual report usage. Essentially, the 1ClickFactory Report Usage Tracking Tool for Dynamics AX identifies which reports are worth transforming (i.e. active reports) and which reports should be left behind (i.e. inactive reports).
