We measure the success of companies by their ability to respond to and adapt to changing business circumstances and new technologies. A software project’s go-live is not its end goal; especially with ERP systems, you’re always responding to changing circumstances to unlock business value fast. ERP systems must evolve as your company grows and changes. We offer a predictable, relevant, and simplified process to meet those needs.
Predictable updates through Lifecycle Services
Built on Microsoft Azure, Lifecycle Services (LCS) makes Dynamics AX updates more discoverable and less onerous. LCS helps you to manage your AX updates easily: binary or application updates containing regulatory features, new features, or changes to existing features. You can create a customer update package containing your desired updates (and their required dependencies). Coupled with the Diagnostic data, you can filter out application changes that are already applied or those that are irrelevant to your environment.
With LCS, regularly updated services, such as System Diagnostics and Upgrade Analysis, help you manage the application lifecycle. LCS provides a predictable and repeatable rollout of an application implementation, upgrade or update. Moreover, the AX update installer comes with an automated code-merge tool that simplifies the process of applying hotfixes and regulatory updates to customized environments. After installing updates, the tool proposes a code merge for the new code into the higher layer customizations. It also adds all impacted code to a project so that you can review and correct the merge as needed.
We strive to be dependable and release these updates on a set schedule so that you can plan your efforts to uptake the enhancements. In addition to cumulative updates, we offer monthly releases that include the latest compilation of updates for Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R2 & R3. Read on to discover what’s included in the upcoming and current updates.
