Whether you’re migrating data from your current solution (or even solutions) to Dynamics 365 or are upgrading from AX, it’s essential that only the data you need comes with you. Carrying dead wood is not only a pointless exercise, but over time the storage of that dead wood will become extremely expensive.
Imagine the data you no longer need has been moved safely by people in white gloves and locked away in a vault where you can supply a key to those who may need future access. All your required data has been placed in your shiny new ERP solution, where it will be enabling your organisation to reap the benefits of such a solution. Which is why you bought it in the first place.

Lasernet Vault365 can keep your project moving
Lasernet Vault365 combines two of our products to create one solution. Let us show you the power of when two become one.
Powered by Azure, Microsoft Dynamics 365 is a market leading Cloud based ERP solution. As Part of Microsoft’s Azure based 365 family of cloud solutions, the solution is quickly gaining the lion’s share of the market due to its rich function set, range of configuration and for being fully cloud based. Almost all Dynamics projects involve data and documents being migrated from an existing ERP, this can be a third-party system such as SAP or Oracle, but is more commonly an on-prem Microsoft system such as AX2009, AX2012 or Navision.
When you perform the migration, you will not need all of your content to be with you when you arrive at Dynamics 365. Some content only needs to be retained so the business can access and view it if and when required. This can be for a number of reasons:
The content is classed as legacy, it is not needed in a day to day system
The content doesn’t fit within the configuration of Dynamics 365
The cost implications of moving to Dynamics 365 is inhibitive.
Such content can prove problematic for an implementation project; it doesn’t fit in the migration plan but needs to be retained and controlled, so dealing with it can put the brakes on the project. If only someone could put it into a vault…
In comes Lasernet Vault365
Working with our global Dynamics partners, Formpipe recognized this challenge and utilizing our expert knowledge of ERP data, we developed Lasernet Vault365.
Lasernet Vault365 is a solution that aids the implementation of Dynamics 365. Data and Documents (content) not required within the Dynamics solution are taken from the source system, and utilising the pre-configured workflow engine in Lasernet, are structured and prepared for ingestion into the Lasernet Vault. Once ingested the content is managed by the digital preservation tools and functions that come as standard, delivering structured data archives where permissions to access, view and download the content are applied.
Also included are data management rules allowing whole archives or swathes of content to be controlled by data management rules resulting in the ability to have controlled deletions running behind the scenes and removing documents and data that you no longer want to retain. This function removes the chance of holding unwanted content or paying for the storage of invaluable content.
Safely stored but easily accessible
Once the Dynamics implementation is complete and live, the connector tool enables a user to be able to view the Vault archives directly from their day to day Dynamics 365 interface. Allowing them to search historic legacy data as well as content created within Dynamics 365 that also needs to be preserved.
Lasernet Vault365 ensures your Dynamics solution is implemented with the content you want, removing the need for you to compromise about the migration content. It gives you a safe, controlled and accessible cloud-based location for content that needs to be retained but not live within your Dynamics solution.
