The business landscape is changing rapidly because of the long-term impact caused by the COVID-19 pandemic on supply chains, consumer behavior, and worksite strategies. This has forced most organizations to modernize their systems to serve their customers better. Though the businesses that have migrated to Microsoft Dynamics 365 tell you that the benefits of moving to the cloud far exceed the risks of continuing with on-premises systems, the transition is not straightforward in most cases. It does take time and resources, but you don’t have to do everything on your own.

You can work closely with reliable Microsoft Partners who have experience and expertise in providing Dynamics 365 implementation and migration services. However, the question is how to find the right Partner when there are many of them out there in the market.

Does the Partner possess the required skill set?

Customers using Dynamics AX and CRM have to make critical decisions when it comes to modernizing their existing on-premises solutions. The most important decision is choosing the right Partner for migration services. This is because it is an investment, just like investing in the Dynamics 365 suite. Find out if the Partner has undertaken and successfully completed Dynamics 365 migration projects. As the reason for the migration and the complexity of implementing the solution vary from one company to another, you need to ascertain that the Partner has helped businesses in your niche.

Does the Partner have a clear understanding of the technology?

Dynamics 365, a fully managed software suite, is offered as Software as a Service. Furthermore, Microsoft certifies professionals employed by Partners, highlighting their capabilities. Therefore, it is very important that you consider working with a Partner who can demonstrate their technology credentials within Microsoft’s ecosystem. This helps to establish the competency of the Microsoft Partner you are planning to work with. Among Microsoft business certifications, the Cloud Business Application, or CBA, certification demonstrates the most important functional competency. Moreover, a Gold or Silver Partner that holds the CBA certificate has to provide the Dynamics 365 migration services.

Does the Partner have industry expertise?

However, there could be differences across industries and organizations. Therefore, it is crucial that you consider the Partner’s experience in deploying Dynamics 365 for organizations operating within your industry.
