Managing a Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2013 upgrade: The importance of detailed testing and shared responsibility

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.

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.
