Summary


In this chapter, you learned about upgrading your Dynamics AX application to a new version. A Dynamics AX or any ERP upgrade is not easy and requires lots of planning and analysis. We started the chapter with exploring the different considerations to evaluate if you are ready to take up an upgrade project. Then we looked at the different options available to upgrade to Dynamics AX 2012.

Major version upgrades can be as complex as an initial implementation project. We went through the various phases of the upgrade project. In the planning phase, you learned about the importance of managing customizations, managing scope, business engagement, and impact analysis. You learned about the best practices and recommendations in various other phases, such as code upgrade, test data upgrade, testing, and end-user training. In the end, we went through deployment planning and looked at activities that need to be done once the upgrade process is complete.
