Moving data from Dynamics GP to Business Central can be a tricky process as both of the systems have slightly different data structures and architectures. However, it can be possible to migrate certain types of data to ensure that any migration proves successful. Here are just a few examples of the different sorts of data you can bring across:
Sales & Purchase Orders
Employee & Payroll Data
It is important to note that more data than this can be mapped out correctly, however these are some of the main ones.
It is important to understand that any data you want to transfer between the two systems has to be carefully planned, cleansed and mapped to make sure that the data is accurately migrated and works within the structure of the new system. Most of this process, largely depends on your specific needs, you may need to make use of certain data migration tools and scripts to make this process a lot smoother.
