Performing development and Upgrades project for Dynamics 365 BC

Dynamics 365 Upgrade development app helps to provide cost-effective professional services using Microsoft Dynamics NAV, Business Central 365 both on premise and cloud (including VM Azure) all over the world to partners and end-users.

It includes:

  • Free analyzing and quoting projects
  • Supporting users on any business needs
  • Upgrade Dynamics NAV to D365BC on premise and cloud

NAV Upgrades of client's database to the latest NAV Business Central 365, conversion of customizations to extensions is a main our service. Because of our vast experience with NAV upgrades, our dev center is following a specific methodology which takes into account several aspects of the upgrade. Most of the upgrade processes are optimized, special tools are created to automate routines. Every upgrade process is divided into stages.

Each stage requires to reach its milestones.

  • Upgrade add-ons and ISV to extensions
  • Code conversion to AL and object transformation to extensions

Business Central 365 requires new knowledge of writing AL code, deep knowledge of NAV functionality on the background side. New BC365 standards are based on the principle to avoid core changes and requires from developers be aware mostly all events of BC365 to subscribe code and have good result while running. Development of extensions as external applications for the customer or a customization pack for the customer is our services also.

  • Customizing existing standard functionality of NAV according to functional design documents
  • Reports, forms and dataports transformation from old NAV to 2018 and BC on premise and cloud

Based on our long experience in upgrading NAV to the latest versions, we found out that we wasted a lot of time (sometimes up to 70% of a project) on reporting on transformation activity. It was decided to automate this process and use for our internal needs. Since that time, many improvements have been made and realized in the Tool. It helps us to make the report transformation development process much easier and faster. As a result, we have most manual operations being automated. The only thing user left to do is to resolve conflicts, which are not supported by NAV 2017/2018 (e.g. Transfer Header/Footer).

Latest technologies like extensions development, redesign code to AL, fast report transformation to RDLC are main type of development of this solution. Special own tools to speed up the NAV upgrade process are the part of this app.
