Dynamics 365 Implementation Process Strategy

A Successful Deployment of Dynamics 365 is Critical to your Success!

Discovery
Discovery is the bedrock for a strong project and the basis for how the implementation will go. We spend time working with everyone, from management to end-users, to review business processes and talk through the current pain points and reasons for your transition. Once we have engaged our architects, we begin documenting everything from users to security, data migration, and system functionality.

Technical Design
Technical design is a series of workshops that we engage your team in to begin the process of documenting the complexities of your current tools and how we’re going to implement Dynamics 365 against it. We will review data migrations, system integrations, data quality and clean up ETL tools, and more in these workshops. These are the heart of the design sessions for technical components in your Dynamics 365 implementation.

Functional Design
This is the most critical session for the success of the implementation of Dynamics 365. We take this period to work through business processes, training, process design, and best practices and the user adoption paths and designing the detailed information around how we are going to implement everything else that users touch and use.

Implementation – Development
We believe in measuring twice and cutting once. With this, we’ve spent time working with your time on getting the foundation right before we ever configure a screen or move one KB of data. This is the most critical part of the implementation. The actual work is done in this phase. During this section, we are working on our process of agile-fall to do the implementation. You can read more about this process below or Here.

Testing
Once we’ve gone through the initial phase of the implementation and design, now it’s time to begin the process of testing and user adoption. This is done through our unique process of a multi-point inspection on each critical function. From there, we move to a standard UX/UI and UAT process for each of the sprints to ensure the highest quality and that there are no production issues.

Training
Once implementation is done and testing is finalized, now it’s time to train! We start with the superuser and admin training; from there, we move into end-user training. Once we complete this, we build a training library and a clickable walk-through library of your system for training, user adoption, and finally, ongoing upkeep—all to maximize your user’s experience and boost your productivity.

Deployment & Go Live
This is the ribbon-cutting ceremony, if you will. All the I’s are dotted, and t’s are crossed. This is the moment we push to production and release everyone into the finished system. After weeks of training, testing, and documentation, we are finally ready to show your Dynamics 365 implementation off to the world.

Support
For the first couple of weeks following a system launch, we monitor it closely, working with the team to address any bugs, issues, or hotfixes that need to be made. This is the most critical moment following a launch that we monitor closely; most implementations fail at go-live, so we double our efforts to ensure project success.

Post Go-Live Discovery and Analysis
Following the project, we work closely with your team to identify new digital transformation areas where we can align Microsoft products and services to fit your organization better. We do this through our go-live assessment program. This allows us to get better and to learn new areas of improvement in your company.

Dynamics 365 Implementation Timeline

After choosing Dynamics 365, the next step is to think about the Dynamics 365 implementation processes and timeline. Outlined below is a list of the steps involved in the implementation of Microsoft Dynamics 365. You should know that this is a rough implementation plan; this will give you an idea of the implementation processes. Your actual implementation playbook may differ. The average implementation of Microsoft Dynamics 365 takes between 8-12 weeks.

Planning and Design  1 to 2 Weeks

The first phase of every implementation is the discovery and design phase. We carefully work with your team to design and plan out the implementation of Dynamics 365 – our team of architects works with your team to prepare business processes, document data migrations, and plan complex integration components. Our planning and design process has won awards and keeps our customers happy.

Implementation & Training — 4 to 8 Weeks

Once we’ve designed the implementation, we will work with your team on the installation based on the scope. From there, we validate the tasks and work breakdown structure. This allows us to validate the installation, data migration, and settings and security are correct. From there, we begin the intense process of UAT and UX Testing to ensure the highest quality functions. Once we’ve completed the testing, we move into user training, superuser training, and admin training. This ensures the highest level of user adoption.

GO Live and Support — 1 to 2 Weeks

Finally, once we’ve completed the implementation, we move on to Go-Live. This is done after a multi-point inspection and sign-off process, a cutover and production push, and once the final training videos are completed. Then we roll off to a support model to provide you with the best care should any questions or issues that arise with your Dynamics 365 Implementation.

The Real Cost of a Microsoft Dynamics 365 Implementation

Understanding Dynamics 365 Total Cost of Ownership

Dynamic Consultants Group helps you to navigate the world of Microsoft Dynamics 365 licensing and implementation costs. Our team of experts works with you to tailor an approach that is both affordable and fits your needs. We look beyond the current state to see where you’ll be in five years. This helps us to future proof your system.

Professional Services

The cost of implementing Dynamics 365 can vary greatly from company to company, depending on the system’s complexity and the number of users. On Average, SMB customers pay between $15-45K, Mid-Market customers pay $80-170K, and Enterprise customers pay between $250-750K. Our team of architects works closely with your team to form a cost-effective and timely Dynamics implementation.

Licensing Costs

Understanding Microsoft’s licensing can be rough at times. The complexities are what keep many people from making the switch. We have tools that help you to understand everything from consumption-based costs to per-user licenses. We help simplify it.

Third-Party Costs 

Today’s modern business uses, on average, 32 systems to keep track of the many business units’ various functions. We know that it is critical these systems integrate and function seamlessly. Sometimes this is native, and sometimes this is with tools. We help your team to understand these tools and the overall impact on cost.

Professional Services

$ 0 K
Average Implementation (20 Full Users)

Professional services can range significantly from $5K to $50M. It all depends on your complexity and your level of customization. Most SMB implementations are about 1/3 this cost, while most enterprise implementations are about 5x this cost. We help navigate you through the complexities of the cost of starting up a Dynamics 365 implementation.

Software licensing

$ 0 K
Annual Licensing for 20 Full Users

Microsoft changes its licensing about once a year, during Microsoft Inspire. This corresponds to their new fiscal year. Microsoft licensing is complex and often fraught with complex configuration requirements and conditions. We help you to navigate these complexities and maximize every dollar you spend on Dynamics 365.

Third-party costs

$ 0 K
Annual Third-Party Costs

We know and understand that your implementation does not start and stop with only Microsoft Dynamics 365. There are things like ETL tools, Azure, and Office 365, Salesforce, or other tools your organization uses to integrate and use. We help you understand these costs upfront and how you can either avoid them or reduce them.
