Archive to Data Lakes
Your Dynamics GP history is important for your users, but a good consultant will not recommend moving all your history into your new ERP environment. This is mainly because every transaction you move needs to be brought in unposted and re-posted down to the cent. 20 years (-ish) of history would require a really expensive effort to map and move the data to your new ERP and there is a better way.
Popdock provides the tools to make a copy of specific data sets, attachments, and your entire database to store in either your Microsoft Azure Data Lake or your Amazon Web Services S3 cloud storage account. With the Popdock Data Upload Tool (link page), you have a configurable interface to select the data set you want to archive, optimize the performance, and organize your data for reporting. You can even copy your favorite SmartLists to your data lake, which will bring your data storage costs down to an average of $10-$50/month (depending on the storage account options you choose).
This is a fast and affordable strategy to manage your historical data and allows you to retire expensive legacy servers and environments.
