How to manage a phased Microsoft Dynamics CRM and GP upgrade and migration to the cloud

August 23 2017

We recently came upon a challenge from a client who needed to upgrade a complex Microsoft Dynamics CRM environment and migrate it, along with a large number of Dynamics GP databases, to the cloud. They had a large user base and were concerned that all of the training and end user support happening at once would be disruptive.
