Ground to Cloud ERP Migration: Your Dynamics AX solution…backed by the power of Azure
As the backbone of your organization, your ERP system touches every department in some way. If you’re using Dynamics AX, you know what it has to offer, and it has likely been meeting your needs so far. But if you’re using an on-premises version, you also know you’re missing out on the power of the Cloud.
Let AKA help you get the best of both worlds: the strength of Dynamics AX combined with the flexibility, scalability, and processing power of Azure. It’s perfect for organizations that want to:
- Avoid replacing hardware reaching end of life
- Reduce maintenance and support costs
- Scale their business
- Ensure better security, disaster recovery, and compliance
- Upgrade so they can use features available in newer versions
- Move from versions at the end of their support lifecycle
- Take advantage of the entire Microsoft platform, including Office 365, SharePoint, Exchange, and more
AKA: Experience you won’t find with any other partner
If you’re concerned about the difficulty of an upgrade and a move to the Cloud, don’t be. Managed by a qualified, experienced partner, the process is surprisingly painless, even if your configuration includes multiple integrations with online and on-premises applications or other complexities.

After the implementation, you’ll have one place to call for Dynamics AX, Azure, or other infrastructure issues—you won’t get bounced around between diﬀerent support teams.
Unparalleled experience. AKA has been a Dynamics partner for more than 20 years and has an expert Cloud team. These teams work together to ensure your solution works seamlessly.
Not ready to upgrade? Move Dynamics AX onto Azure
Although we are confident that upgrading to Dynamics 365 is the way to go, we understand that every organization has different needs. If you have AX on premises or another arrangement (managed services or hosting) and don’t want to upgrade, there is an alternative. AKA can migrate AX to Azure, so you can enjoy the benefits you’ve always experienced with AX—made even more powerful by Microsoft Azure:
High availability—Your data is in a state-of-the-art Microsoft data center with built-in redundancy, so downtime is minimal for updates and maintenance, and backup facilities are staﬀed 24/7.
Highly scalable—No more dealing with on-premises infrastructures that are fixed and expensive to expand; Azure allows fast resizing of servers, storage capacity, and build-out of new production and sandbox environments.
Pay for what you need—Azure allows you to scale based on demand, so you pay only for what you use.
Integration with on-premise systems—Your ERP Cloud environment can be fully integrated with your existing on-premise systems, including CRM, reporting, and third-party applications.
Everywhere availability—All your employees need is Internet access to use your applications around the world; Azure runs on a growing global network of Microsoft-managed datacenters.
Take advantage of new features and opportunities to optimize—Migrating is the perfect opportunity to upgrade to the latest version of Dynamics so you can take advantage of current features. You also get the opportunity to review and optimize your processes.
Azure keeps you ahead of the curve—Use Microsoft PowerApps and Flow to develop low code/no code solutions that run on mobile and desktop platforms and meet your specific needs. You also get access to the latest as Microsoft continues to refine and enhance Azure, Office 365, and Dynamics 365.
Data safety and security—Microsoft is equipped to meet ever-changing compliance and regulatory standards for security and authentication, taking the burden oﬀ your staﬀ.
