Prepare for the future of continuous updates!
Are you still on Dynamics 365 Finance & Operations v7.3 - and need to upgrade to v8.1? (But don’t want to go it alone?)
Upgrading from version 7.3
One reason to stay on version 7.3 of Dynamics 365 F&O. And 6 reasons not to.
There is only one (yes, one) valid reason for staying on Dynamics 365 Finance and Operations v7.3. And that is if you have any open extensibility requests with Microsoft.
Your extensibility request is communicated directly to the Microsoft Dynamics 365 development team to ask for access to hook into a specific piece of standard functionality. And you only do this when a customisation requirement can’t be handled in any other way.
The upshot? There’s not much to be said for staying put on v7.3.
In just 4-6 weeks1 we can get you upgraded to Dynamics 365 Finance and Operations v8.1 and looking good.
1 Timeframe depends on a number of factors, any existing code overlayering will require additional time to move to extensions.
No solution is perfect, but luckily there are more pros than cons when it comes to upgrading to Dynamics 365 Finance and Operations v8.1.
The decision to stay put on your old version of Dynamics 365 Finance and Operations instead of upgrading to v8.1 is a bold one. However, we guess you know that.
We will get back to you as soon as possible.
