In this chapter, we started with understanding the importance of configuration management in a Dynamics AX implementation project. We learned about configuration planning and collecting configuration data. Then we analyzed the different tools available for the initial configuration and moving the configuration data from one environment to another environment. At the end, we learned the basic concepts behind configuration data management, the various techniques for configuration data management, and about promoting the configuration data from one environment to another.
In the next chapter, we will learn about building customization where a lot of time is spent in a typical AX implementation project. We will learn about the different approaches for customizing the Dynamics AX application and the best practices and recommendations.
