The transition to the cloud is easier than you think. It begins with moving business operations into one technology platform -- Dynamics 365 Business Central.
One of the common concerns about transitioning from Microsoft Dynamics GP to Business Central is the lack of a straightforward defined migration path.
The initial data migration time can vary depending on factors such as the amount of data to migrate, your SQL Server configuration, and integrations.
Transition Pricing for Business Central (assumes current on GP maintenance)
Our approach to this project will be structured according to our implementation methodology, which has four implementation phases: Preparation & Kickoff, Testing/Training + Addn'l Data Conversion, and Cutover:
On the GP Company Migration Configuration page, you can select if you want to migrate historical information from GP into Business Central. This data will be visible in list pages found under the corresponding entities and navigating to GP Detail Snapshot. You can indicate if you want to migrate GL detail, Receivables, Payables, Sales Order Processing, Purchase Order Receipts and Inventory transactions. The data is stored in extension tables in Business Central. Data stored in those tables can be used in Power BI reports, Power Apps or other 3rd party reporting tools. The tables containing the GP Historical Snapshot data are as follows:
You can limit the amount of data migrated in the snapshot by entering the latest year in GP that you want brought over. Enter this year in the Oldest GP Year field on the GP Company Migration Configuration page.
The GP Historical Snapshot will run as a background process after the migration is complete. The status of the GP Historical Snapshot data can be viewed in Fact boxes on the Cloud Migration Management page.
