Highlighting some of the main points

  • FastTrack Service is only available for eligible customers. Check the eligibility requirements below

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-IN/fasttrack/M365-eligible-services-and-plans

  • The customer \ partner will be guided and assisted by FastTrack Solution Architect as part of the FastTrack Program.
  • Supported SQL Server version – 2008, 2012, 2014, 2016.
  • Supported CRM On-Premise – 2011, 2013, 2015, 2016, 9.0.

High-level steps of the program include

  • Setting up the migration project in Microsoft Lifecycle Services, which uses the wizard-based hosted tool for the migration.
  • Setting up Azure subscription and storage account (for which customer needs to pay along with the Dynamics 365 Subscriptions) and provision staging sandbox environment.
  • Taking the backup of the CRM On-Premise database and uploading it to Azure Blob Container.

    The backup is restored in the same version in Azure Hosted Virtual Machine i.e. CRM 2015 database will be restored in CRM 2015 VM.

  • PowerApps Checker service runs as part of the next phase, to validate the solution.
  • Finally, the Upgrade process starts, which upgrades the restored CRM Database to CRM 9.0 Database. E.g. CRM 2015 Backup will be restored in CRM 2015 VM, which will be then upgraded to CRM 2016 VM, and then finally to CRM 9.0 VM.
  • This is followed by user-mapping and the migration to the online as the last step.

Here, the customer/partner needs to make sure to transform all SQL Based report to Fetch XML, update the plugin to run in sandbox mode, update JavaScript to the new client object model, check for any 3rd part tools and reconfiguration of integration, make users familiar with new Unified Client interface, cleaning of the database (for audit data), etc to make the solution online compatible. This can be done before restoring to the Azure Storage or during the staging phase (This is customer/ partner responsibility and will be assisted by FastTrack Architect and Microsoft Technical Support team for any upgrade issues).

Hope it helps..
