Upgrading from version 7.3

Good Luck

So, you’ve decided to stay put on Dynamics 365 F&O version 7.3. Good luck with that.

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.

Sorry to play the doom and gloom card, but here’s what you can look forward to:

  • What you’ve got, is what you’ve got. No more upgrades, period. The feature-set will be frozen to current application level

  • Kiss your support goodbye. As of 1 April 2019, there won’t be any more hotfixes from Microsoft. And as the support contract has finished, they’re under no obligation to fix your – or anyone else’s issues.

  • Lack of surety. You’ll have no guarantee for uptime / availability.

  • Compatibility crises. Backend services (Azure SQL) could break compatibility – as has been seen with TLS 1.2 version requirements.

  • Stuck in time. You won’t have any access to newer ISV options.

  • An expensive future. If you don’t upgrade now, you’ll find that a future upgrade will be expensive and require extensive testing / re-implementation.

It doesn’t take much reading between the lines to see that we don’t recommend 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.

So why wait?

1 Timeframe depends on a number of factors, any existing code overlayering will require additional time to move to extensions.
