Business analysis is the most important element of every Business Central implementation project. Conducting a pre-implementation analysis allows for optimal preparation of the company for the launch and efficient use of the business software, such as Dynamics 365 Business Central. The analysis stage defines the actions required for initiating and planning an ERP implementation project. As part of the analysis, the identification of the client’s business processes is performed, the determination of the organizational structure for ERP implementation, the specification of the functional scope of the implementation, and the definition of critical areas with the highest return on investments. During the analytical meetings, Microsoft partners together with their clients develop: project vision, project scope, projects goals and benefits resulting from the Business Central implementation.
Additionally, the following are determined: project plan, milestones, resources, roles and responsibilities, as well as products. The result of the conducted analysis is comprehensive documentation, including Functional Requirements Document, which describes the client’s current processes in the following scope
- Current state
- Suggested implementation path in a relevant process in the ERP system – Business Central
- Required adjustments- Changes in the scope involve modifications to the standard functionality of Business Central as well as entirely new features that the client may wish to have within the system
