I'm given a task of migration of GPs inventory and financials modules to MS Ax. I request your valuable
suggestions and guidance. If you have any links, articles, information
about what needs to be taken care of while moving data from GP to Ax or
how the task could be done efficiently then please post them here. I have created a thread for suggestions in the GP forums too, and I will update this thread with every valuable information.
You can visit the GP thread here.
You have not mentioned version of DAX. Also it is not clear how experienced you are in AX. But having did migration from Nav to DAX 2012 and previous data migrations in various versions of DAX, I have given high level process below -
1) Focus on getting the actual process defined in DAX and signed off as business processes define data migration scope 2) Time should be then spent on understanding the functionality from technical standpoint (understand tables, relations, methodology and tools to populate tables etc)3) Based on above understanding, scope of data migration should be defined clearly and signed off by customer4) Only after then data migration exercise should be kicked off
If you are planning to migrate data into DAX 2012, then I would suggest using AIF as tool. If you search here, you will find the tool which I uploaded recently.
Last but not least, since data migration is iterative process the tools should be designed/written with this in mind.
Please let us know if you have any queries.
Tons of thanks for your valuable suggestions! I am working on DAX 2009 and have 2+ yrs of experience in DAX 3.0.

Hope you are referring to the following link? StagingTableWizard.zip
I will go through the documents, follow your advice and try to implement the methodology. I will definitely update this thread with the outcome.
Thanks once again!
