Summary


In this chapter, we went through the Dynamics AX system architecture and learned about the different components in there. We learned about the information that we need for capacity planning and infrastructure estimation, how to use Microsoft Lifecycle Services to create a usage profile, and to roughly estimate the hardware requirements for your implementation project. After getting rough estimates for the hardware, we went through the different system topologies for production and non-production environments. Finally, we explored the industry best practices and recommendations related to infrastructure planning.

In the next chapter, we will learn another key aspect of ERP implementation projects—integration planning and design.
