When migrating from MS Navision to Business Central, there are several things to consider. First, the data must be mapped to Business Central fields. For example, if you’re migrating data from an external source into Business Central, the field ‘No.’ will probably be the same in both ERP systems. Once this is done, you can migrate your data to Business Central using a configuration package or a Rapid Start.
Another advantage of Business Central over Microsoft NAV is its ability to deliver actionable insights. Not only can Business Central spot trends and opportunities, but it can also give you access to analytics that help you make better decisions. Furthermore, you can integrate Microsoft App store apps into Business Central to extend its capabilities. This helps you avoid the cost of custom development. This is an excellent option for companies that don’t need to have an in-house IT department.
Once you’re ready to migrate, you need to set up your database and access permissions for Business Central online. For example, you can create a sandbox environment based on your production environment. You must run the data replication and upgrade steps in the sandbox environment before moving it to the production environment. This ensures that you won’t lose any data during the migration process. However, if you’re migrating from an on-premises system, you will have to run additional migrations.
In order to make this process as painless as possible, Microsoft has created a migration tool that makes it possible for Microsoft Dynamics NAV users to update to Business Central online without any hassle. Once Business Central has been installed, the software will attempt to migrate data to it, but it will fail if the tables linked to the extension are already in Business Central. If you have custom V1 Extensions, they must be converted to V2 extensions before they can be upgraded to Business Central Online.
