Change is difficult and when it comes to organizational change, things become even more difficult and challenging. Upgrading your current Microsoft ERP to a Dynamics 365 Business Central may inevitably have some amount of disruption, but it’s definitely a change for good. However, the decision on whether to upgrade depends on various factors such as how old your current version is, the number and complexity of integrations, number of users, customizations, add-ons, and other common factors such as budget and challenges. Here are some key questions to ask before upgrading to Business Central.
One of the key benefits of Microsoft Dynamics 365 is the fact that it is based on the cloud. Even though this replacement and migration of the existing business systems may look like a giant leap, the benefits far outweigh the risks.
