Migrating Data from Your Old Accounting Solution to Dynamics GP
What does it mean to migrate data from one accounting solution to another? What are the costs and benefits? Must I migrate from one system to another?
Migrating data, simply put, is the process of moving data from here to there. But, like so much in the world of technology, things are not necessarily so straightforward.
Ideally, you want to migrate from one set of tables to the same or similar set of tables in the new solution; historical data to historical data, correct? Any number of products are promoted as migration tools, but too often they are something else: integration tools. For accounting solutions, integration tools will populate the pre-posting tables or the work tables, which is how integration tools should work.
