Ajmal MohammedOne segment of the Microsoft Dynamics AX community is ready, willing, and eager to migrate to Dynamics 365 for Operations. But there also exists some of that "Our old system works fine" reticence.

No evidence for ROI to upgrade to D365 for SMB

It would be interesting to hear if Microsoft will be paying attention to this market segment in terms of pricing.
