Managing a Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2013 upgrade: The importance of detailed testing and shared responsibility
For a company with actively maintained integrations to Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009, planning an upgrade to NAV 2013 introduces some interesting challenges. But as one promotional merchandise agency discussed at a recent NAVUG meeting, successful upgrade projects require many of the same fundamental characteristics, regardless of the technical specifics.
This particular NAV customer, a company of about 70 with "dozens of B2B e-commerce sites" managed web services integrations into NAV 2009 via BizTalk. And while it worked, it suffered from architectural choke points. One was the single-threaded architecture, the presenter told other NAV users. It limited the maximum number of transactions that they could get through in a day, including sales orders, shipments, and even communication with their e-commerce site.
