Migration from Dynamics NAV/AX to Dynamics 365 BC/FO with the help of a PIM system

Are you considering switching from a Dynamics NAV or AX version to the new 365 Business Central or Finance and Operations?

Then you will have certainly looked at or had to deal with changes with regard to the future adaptability/expandability of your ERP system, including with regard to your current data model in the ERP system.

Migration from Dynamics NAV/AX to Dynamics 365 BC/FO with Perfion PIM

Have you augmented product master data in Microsoft Dynamics NAV or Microsoft Dynamics AX with fields, tables, or perhaps with the help of additional modules?

Since Microsoft recommends reducing the degree of platform adaptation, it is unfortunately not possible to apply all these changes in the new Dynamics 365 versions.

Perfion PIM supports your Dynamics migration project

Perfion is a Product Information Management system that offers 100% integration into your Dynamics ERP solution.

This allows product data from the ERP system to be synchronized directly with the Perfion PIM system in real time. This includes not only to classic master data such as prices and transaction data such as stock levels, but also all types of product data.

Perfion’s direct Dynamic integration allows product data to be kept in just one system but still be available in both systems synchronously and in real time.

First step:
Connect the ERP system to be replaced to the PIM system

As part of the ERP migration project, the ERP system to be replaced is first connected to the Perfion PIM system, which allows the product data model, including all relevant data, to be set up in the PIM system. This applies not only to your "old" Dynamics NAV or Dynamics AX system, but also to other ERP or source/third-party systems in general.

Second step:
Connect the PIM system to the future Dynamics 365 ERP system

In the next step, you can fully concentrate on the switch to Dynamics BC/FO because your product data is already available in the PIM system, so you have your product data under control.

Once the migration project has progressed far enough, Perfion can be connected to the future Dynamics system to make the product data available. If necessary, this can even be done in parallel with the existing integration with the system to be replaced.

Damstahl implemented Perfion PIM and a new ERP system simultaneously. This saved lots of double work.
