What About Converting Current Customizations?
One key aspect of upgrading from an older version of NAV to Business Central is converting your customizations from C/AL to AL code.
In some cases, old customizations can be replaced with existing Business Central functionality while in other cases the customizations need to be rewritten. Common customizations that no longer need to be utilized would be multiple remit to addresses, statistical accounts, multiple vendor remit-to addresses and default line item types.
In other cases, it makes more sense to start from scratch and “reimplement” Business Central than it does to perform a migration. Schneider Downs can help you identify the appropriate option.
Our team of experts can guide you through the process of identifying these customizations planning for a successful upgrade.
