Sorry to play the doom and gloom card, but here’s what you can look forward to:

  • What you’ve got, is what you’ve got. No more upgrades, period. The feature-set will be frozen to current application level
  • Kiss your support goodbye. As of 1 April 2019, there won’t be any more hot-fixes from Microsoft. And as the support contract has finished, they’re under no obligation to fix your – or anyone else’s issues.
  • Lack of surety. You’ll have no guarantee for uptime / availability.
  • Compatibility crises. Backend services (Azure SQL) could break compatibility — as has been seen with TLS 1.2 version requirements.
  • Stuck in time. You won’t have any access to newer ISV options.
  • An expensive future. If you don’t upgrade now, you’ll find that a future upgrade will be expensive and require extensive testing / re-implementation.

It doesn’t take much reading between the lines to see that we don’t recommend staying put on v7.3.

In just four to six weeks¹ we can get you upgraded to Dynamics 365 Finance and Operations v8.1 and looking good.

¹ Timeframe depends on a number of factors, any existing code over-layering will require additional time to move to extensions.
