Upgrading code from AX 2012 to D365 can be a daunting task. MS has given us some tools to help but we'll go through a high level overview of the available tools and methodologies to get the process started.
I previously posted on how to install a platform and app update package but got a question: How do you do this if you do not have the tile? I'll briefly walkthrough how to take the long road to installing a PU. Also, unlike my other post, this will be just the PU rather than the PU and app update all in one. Also, I have seen some minor difference between deployments types on app/PU level which may make this look slightly different. I was experiencing this issue with a cloud hosted environment.
Deployment scenarios between AX 2012 and Dynamics 365 For Finance and Operations can now be compared with the on premise version, called Local Business Data, of Dynamics 365 For Finance and Operations, or F&O for short. Below we'll compare and contrast each scenario, sizing, latency, other hidden requirements as well as when you would select Dynamics 365 F&O in Azure or the LBD flavor.
