Business Value - 

In 2022 release wave 1, we add new capabilities to the AL performance profiler. In this release wave, we are going to empower functional developers/consultants, as well as customer administrators and power users to capture a user flow from within the web client, and view high-level information about time spent in the web client. This way, people can investigate which involved extensions consume the most time, including top-consuming method calls, for example.

History - 

In 2021 release wave 2, Microsoft added the AL performance profiler to the Visual Studio Code AL experience. 

The performance profiler has empowered pro developers to investigate performance as part of developing new functionality, as well as help troubleshoot performance issues in AL code in customer environments, even in production.

MSDYN365BC - Data Upgrade To Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central on premises.

Hi Readers, We have already talked about the number of steps for upgrading to Business Central on Premises from different NAV versions. After that article, I received multiple requests for an article which list down steps for Data Migration. In this article, we will discuss steps of data migration to MSDYN365BC (on-Prem) from NAV 2017. For this article, I am considering a Cronus Demo Database without any customization. For an actual upgrade project, we will have to complete object merge using compare and Merge process. After the Merge Process, the next step is data migration. Let's discuss those steps. Direct Upgrade to Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central (on-Prem) is from following versions - 1. NAV 2015. 2. NAV 2016. 3. NAV 2017. 4. NAV 2018.
