As businesses grow, so do their needs for better and more efficient systems to manage their operations. For many companies, Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2015 has been the go-to solution for enterprise resource planning (ERP) software. However, with the introduction of Business Central SaaS, many businesses are now considering upgrading their existing Dynamics NAV 2015 systems to take advantage of the benefits of cloud-based ERP.
But upgrading a system as complex as an ERP can be a daunting task, especially when it involves migrating existing customizations and objects. In this blog post, we will discuss the continuing upgrade of Dynamics NAV 2015 objects migration to Business Central SaaS.
Step 1: Evaluate Your Current Dynamics NAV 2015 Environment
Before starting the migration process, it’s important to evaluate your current Dynamics NAV 2015 environment. This will help you identify any potential issues that may arise during the migration process and help you plan accordingly.
Step 2: Identify Customizations and Objects
Next, identify any customizations or objects that you have in your current Dynamics NAV 2015 environment. These may include modifications to existing forms and reports, custom code units, or new objects that you have created.
Step 3: Assess Compatibility with Business Central SaaS
Once you have identified your customizations and objects, you will need to assess their compatibility with Business Central SaaS. Some customizations may not be supported in the cloud environment or may require modifications to work properly. It’s important to evaluate each customization or object and determine the level of effort required to make it compatible with Business Central SaaS.
Step 4: Upgrade Your Customizations and Objects
After assessing compatibility, you can begin upgrading your customizations and objects. This may involve making changes to the code or modifying forms and reports to work properly in the cloud environment. It’s important to test each customization thoroughly to ensure that it works as expected.
Step 5: Test Your Upgraded System
Once all customizations and objects have been upgraded, it’s important to thoroughly test your upgraded system to ensure that it works as expected. This may involve testing business processes, running reports, and verifying data integrity.
Step 6: Deploy Your Upgraded System
Finally, when you are confident that your upgraded system is ready to go, it’s time to deploy it. This may involve migrating data from your old system to the new one, configuring settings, and training users on the new system.
In conclusion, upgrading from Dynamics NAV 2015 to Business Central SaaS can be a complex process, especially when it involves migrating customizations and objects. However, by following the steps outlined in this blog post and working with a qualified partner, you can successfully upgrade your system and take advantage of the benefits of cloud-based ERP.
