Upgrade automation

If you are a customer operating Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations, Enterprise edition, you will be able to apply a major version upgrade (such as 7.1 to 7.2) without involvement from the Microsoft operations team. Orchestration of upgrade steps, including preparation of a staging area, data upgrade, and applying new versions, are performed via an automated process. While the Microsoft operations team is available on a stand-by basis to assist with queries or exceptions, you can schedule and carry out the entire process with minimal downtime and at your convenience.
