Microsoft Dynamics 365: An "Evergreen" Business Software Solution

A critical point of pain in purchasing an ERP or CRM is keeping your software up to date and relevant in a rapidly changing environment. With other business solutions, organizations will likely need to upgrade or implement a new version within 3 years of the original implementation - driving additional expenditures and hurting return on investment.

Microsoft Dynamics 365 has been designed to future-proof customers' investments into their business solution. Microsoft's commitment to ongoing continuous updates (rather than large, expensive upgrades) ensures that the platform evolves over time to meet changing business needs and industry trends. This approach reduces the risk of the software becoming outdated or unsupported, providing customers with long-term value.

Migration Types for Your Upgrade to Dynamics 365

The options for current Dynamics customers are dependent on a variety of factors. The status of your current solution and the goals you set for your Dynamics 365 solution will help you determine your upgrade plan. Code upgrades, licensing considerations, and data migrations should all be a part of your analytical process. It’s important to work with a Partner who understands how all of these issues interact and align to become part of your upgrade plan.

Technical Upgrade

A technical upgrade to Dynamics 365 allows organizations to preserve their existing system configuration, data, and customizations, resulting in a smooth transition with reduced downtime and minimal costs. It minimizes the need for extensive retraining and ensures a more efficient upgrade process while still benefiting from the latest features and improvements.

Upgrade + Improvements

A technical upgrade with targeted improvements offers the best of both worlds. It allows organizations to leverage their existing system while selectively enhancing specific areas to address pain points or leverage new functionalities. This approach minimizes disruption, reduces implementation costs, and maximizes the benefits of both the upgrade and enhancements.


Fully re-implementing during a move to Dynamics 365 can be advantageous when the existing system is heavily customized, outdated, or not aligned with the organization's evolving business processes. It's an opportunity to start fresh, resulting in a more optimized and future-proof solution tailored to the organization's specific needs.

How your organization views Dynamics 365 in terms of new functionality plays a major role in how you go about getting there. Viewing the move as a chance to explore new functionality, advance the use of the system, and achieve a true ROI indicates there will likely be re-implementation in some capacity. When the move is viewed as a purely technical exercise, without exploring any of the new functionality, your organization is likely leaning toward the upgrade path.
