Migrating from Microsoft Dynamics AX to Dynamics 365 Finance

Why upgrade?

The Microsoft Dynamics 365 ecosystem is a trusted technology platform that can underpin the transformation of your finance and operations - and has proven time and again to be the optimal, cloud-based solution for organisations of all sizes.

Dynamics 365 F&O is provided as two applications: D365 Finance and D365 Supply Chain Management. This allows you the flexibility to adopt the capabilities as and when you need them. Built on the Azure platform, with tight integration to the Microsoft office toolset and the Power Platform, D365 Finance allows you to gain advanced analytics, benefit from robotic process automation (RPA) and leverage the power of Microsoft’s AI cloud capabilities.

Support ending overview

In addition to the functionality and integration benefits gained from moving to D365 Finance, you will also continue to benefit from Microsoft’s product support offerings. Microsoft will no longer be supporting Dynamics AX 2012, in line with their product lifecycle, as follows:

ProductMainstream Support End DateExtended Support End Date
Dynamics AX 201210/9/201810/12/2021
Dynamics AX 2012 R210/9/201810/12/2021
Dynamics AX 2012 R310/12/20211/10/2023

*The extended support period allows customers to continue to submit support incidents, but only security-related fixes will be released during this period (i.e. product related hotfixes will not be developed).

D365 migration programme

Microsoft have established a team of expert advisers, known as the Concierge Desk, who will help guide you through the cloud migration. This free-of-charge support offering includes consultancy services from Microsoft experts who will provide you with all the information you need to start your cloud migration, including:

  • A standard migration assessment – Which migration options and methodologies are best suited to your organisation, timescales, complexities?
  • Business value insights report – An overview of the economic benefits achievable for your organisation when moving to the Cloud.

Following your assessment, Tisski’s ERP specialists and solutions architects will work with you to determine the migration approach that best suits your business with considerations to minimum business disruption, cost and speed of implementation. Throughout the migration process, our team of D365 experts will provide the technical updates and oversight required to support your business in its move to the Cloud.
