• Were currently using Dynamics 365 CE and multiple other systems

  • Had 300 users across two legal entities in multiple countries

  • Desire to ‘adopt, not adapt’ and ‘configure, not customise’ a new system

  • Had a number of business goals:

    •  Improve efficiency through greater automation

    • Replace existing billable time tracking solution and finance ecosystem

    • Reduce reliance on legacy systems and transform through digitisation

    • Consolidate, centralise and reduce current technology stack

    • Optimise licensing

  • Wanted to transition to a Microsoft ERP solution and to understand whether Dynamics 365 Finance & Supply Chain Management or Dynamics 365 Business Central was the best choice


  • Project was led by an Enterprise architect with a small team of three other specialists contributing to the GYDE365-Discover survey
  • Used GYDE365-Discover to enable them to carry out a quick and detailed comparison exercise of Dynamics 365 F&SCM and Business Central against their business requirements


  • Timings:

    • Received their detailed Dynamics 365 BC and F&SCM analysis against their submitted business requirements within three weeks.


    • 71% and 93% fit of out-of-the-box Dynamics 365 BC and F&SCM, respectively, against their business requirements
    • Impressed with the process and will be making an informed decision on BC or F&SCM based on the detailed fit/gap analysis, costings and licensing information provided.
