Upgrade to Dynamics 365
The Smarter Way to Move to the Cloud
Humans have a tendency to resist change in their lives. Some view it as an unnecessary inconvenience — but what about a change that can make life more convenient? If chosen thoughtfully and implemented correctly, change can enrich your business and encourage financial growth. Embracing the upgrade to Dynamics 365 will do just that.
You may be wondering “why would I need to upgrade to the cloud if Dynamics AX is working perfectly fine for me?” There is some level of reservation when it comes to software updates, but upgrading your ERP and CRM system to the cloud can have invaluable benefits. Below are seven reasons why you should make the leap to Dynamics 365.
Top Reasons to Upgrade to Dynamics 365
Dynamics AX 2009 & 2012 Mainstream Support Ending Soon
Mainstream support for Dynamics AX 2009 and AX 2012 will end soon. All Microsoft products have a lifecycle that begins when the product is released and ends -- at this time, support is no longer supported. Dynamics AX products are normally supported for 10 years from the release date. If you are currently on Dynamics AX 2009, Dynamics AX 2012, and Dynamics AX 2012 R2, mainstream support period is set to expire in 2018.
Upgrading to Dynamics 365 can reduce customization costs by up to 40%, particularly in the retail or manufacturing industries.

One of the major hurdles cited for lack of upgrade is the difficulty of implementation, but Dynamics 365 gives you the ability to quickly see results with a minimal learning curve. Companies like Uber, Airbnb, and Netflix have all embraced digital transformation, and their business to consumer reputations have increased.
