Course Description

This three-day instructor-led course covers both the data upgrade and the code customization upgrades from Microsoft Dynamics AX 4.0 and Microsoft Dynamics AX 2009 to Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012.

The course will cover the flow of the Microsoft Dynamics AX 2009 SP1 to Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 RTM upgrade, and point out any differences for Microsoft Dynamics AX 4.0 SP2 during the course. Labs and demos will run on Microsoft Dynamics AX 2009 SP1 and Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012.

The ideal breakdown for this course would be to have the first two days cover the data upgrade. This would be focused in the implementer partner to include the personas of Simon and Tim. The third day of the course would cover the code upgrade and focus on the developer persona of Isaac and would include Tim from a planning perspective and Simon as the customer/partner.

Who Should Attend

This course is intended for partner/installer/end-users and developers.
