How to go through the go-live process in a few hours in Business Central?

With the Migration Tool Box, it’s possible to go live in a few hours using the right strategy.

This is what happens in the video

When we do a conversion of databases, meaning we migrate from one old database in whatever system into a new go-live database in Dynamics 365 Business Central, we will prepare the go-live company in many stages.

This means, we will add Master Data into the database during a period of time, and prepare the database more and more to be ready to go live.

You can still work in the old live company, doing postings, etc This way, we only need to move a few things into the go-live company when we do the actual go-live batches.

This means, when we get to the go-live period, we will actually just take the last corrected go-live data, the last items, the last customer corrected, and so on, and then all the open orders or the posted documents, and we run the go-live batch jobs.

This should be done in a few hours coming from the old system to the new system, and this is possible because we do a complete go-live a complete conversion, but actually migrate data in many different steps.
