Migrating from Dynamics AX to Dynamics 365 in the Cloud

Visit Website View Our Posts

Microsoft Dynamics AX has been the ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) solution of choice for many businesses, for many years. If you are a faithful dynamics AX user, you realize that Microsoft will end its extended support of Dynamics AX 2012 RTM and R2 in October 2021. Extended support for AX 2012 R3 will end a little over a year later January 2023. Now is the time to decide the next best ERP step for your business. The natural successor to Microsoft Dynamics AX is Microsoft Dynamics 365 (F&SCM) Finance & Supply Chain Management in the cloud.

Moving to cloud-based ERP with Dynamics 365 F&SCM will give you expanded ERP functionality. You’ll also benefit from seamless integration with other Microsoft applications and the ability to share data easily throughout your organization.

Determining how to get there

Transitioning smoothly from Dynamics AX to Dynamics 365 F&SCM depends on knowing where you are going.  Start by taking advantage of our free webinar: Upgrade Strategies for Moving from Dynamics AX to Dynamics 365 F&SCM.

You’ll need to assess your current Dynamics AX processes and the cloud-readiness of your organization. Moving to the cloud will be an adjustment, but one with many benefits. Microsoft Azure, the leading public cloud platform gives you the benefit of deploying and managing your cloud environment and having it scale as your business grows. 

How we help beyond just the technology


Our migration approach includes examining any modules you added to Dynamics AX as well as the reporting and third-party applications your solution integrates with. In many cases, we find those add-ons are no longer required because their functions are already embedded within D365 F&SCM. An example of a function that no longer requires a third-party app would be Power BI. If you require Marketing, Sales, Customer Service, or Field Service, they can be added easily through simple data mappings to other Dynamics 365 cloud applications.

Organizations migrating from Dynamics AX to Dynamics 365 F&SCM can also enhance their warehouse and manufacturing workflows. And Microsoft tools that your team will use every day include:

Our webinar will give you a quick overview of all these Microsoft products. You’ll be able to see how migrating from Dynamics AX to Dynamics 365 F&SCM will afford additional benefits beyond the upgraded ERP capabilities.
