Business Challenge

Hempel has embarked on the journey to upgrade their business application from AX2009 to D365 F&O across 60+ countries, across continents with an in-house team of AX/D365 resources, however were needing a partner with experienced and dedicated resources with good knowledge of not only the product but also the business, to help them meet stiff challenge of timely rolling out D365 F&O across all their geographies.

Solution

A global Microsoft Dynamics 365 roll out program has kicked off in 2019 and is expected to be completed by 2021. Our team is involved in the project, along with Hempel’s internal Microsoft Dynamics team to successfully roll out Microsoft Dynamics 365 across Europe, followed by the Middle East, Asia, US, and the rest of the world.

There is also an upgrade from Microsoft Dynamics AX 2009 to Microsoft Dynamics 365 going on across multiple entities globally. OnActuate has provided a Microsoft Dynamics 365 functional team. To start with, our consultants’ job is to map their existing SOPs written on Microsoft Dynamics AX 2009 to D365 F&O. The ultimate plan is to assist Hempel’s internal Microsoft Dynamics team during D365 F&O roll out, go-live, and to provide post-go-live support. We are engaging with Hempel in an onshore-offshore delivery model.
