Dynamics 365 Business Central: is my on-premises customer ready for SaaS?

Writing on his blog, Stefano Demiliani pointed out that there are several questions every Dynamics 365 Business Central partner that works with large on-premises customers hears at one time or another.

These questions are:

  • Is my Dynamics 365 Business Central on-premises customer ready to be moved on SaaS?
  • Will the SaaS platform be able to handle the transactions of my Dynamics 365 Business Central on-premises customer?
  • Will I have performance problems moving my existing Dynamics 365 Business Central on-premises customer to the SaaS platform?

To help answer these questions, Demiliani separated the answers into two main topics: platform scalability and code scalability. He then explained that platform scalability means that Dynamics 365 Business Central is a reliable platform designed for scale.

Demiliani reviewed some key considerations and the conversations partners and their clients should have, and he then explained what partners need to do next. He stated that after customers are finally fully on SaaS, partners need to be sure to continuously monitor those customers.

How to optimize user experience in Dynamics 365 Business Central by adding fields to pages

Writing on the Encore Business Solutions blog, Mike Harris noted that a new capability in D365BC enables you to easily customize the user experience to different roles. He wrote that now administrators, department owners, and partner consultants can easily add these fields to pages without having to develop code extensions. In addition, he stated that customers can self-serve, which saves them time and money.

In his blog post, Harris explained that to begin your D365BC environment must be patched to the 2023 release wave 2 update and your user account must have the D365BC profile management permission set or equivalent permissions. He then explained how to add fields to pages and offered examples of how to improve efficiency and user experience with this capability.
