Dynamics AX Solution BestPath Assessment for transitioning to Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations

 

Solution BestPath Assessment is the evaluation of your existing Dynamics AX solution transition possibilities and a set of recommendations for the most beneficial tactic for your move to Dynamics 365 Finance&Operations. The service includes a detailed analysis of your current Dynamics AX solution to help you make an informed decision on how to transition to Dynamics 365 Finance&Operations and how big of an effort it is.

1ClickFactory’s BestPath Assessment will provide you with more visibility into your Dynamics AX upgrade project complexity, will identify key redesign areas together with not movable modifications, and will help you to make informed decisions as to which upgrade tactic (upgrade, re-implementation, or a mix of both) is the most beneficial and cost-effective tactic for your move to Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations.

By getting a BestPath Assessment you also receive a clear plan (including the roles and tasks in the project) for the project execution. You will have a better visibility into your solution complexity and will be able to better manage the project’s risks and avoid costly mistakes. You will also be able to get a good understanding of the effort needed to move to Dynamics 365 Finance&Operations.
