Odoo migrations: how to minimise customisation

Odoo is a powerful ERP package that is regularly updated with new features and improvements. This can be a challenge for businesses that have a lot of customization in their Odoo installation. In this blog post, we discuss how you can minimize customization during an Odoo migration.

Why is customisation a challenge during migrations?

Customization is an adaptation to Odoo that is not standard in the package. This can be necessary, for example, to meet specific business processes or requirements. When migrating to a new Odoo version, this customization must also be adapted or transferred.

This can be a challenge, as the new version may have different functionality or structure than the old version. In some cases, it may even be necessary to rebuild the customization from scratch.

How to minimise customisation during a migration?

There are a few things you can do to minimize customization during a migration:

  • ​Critically review whether the customization is still needed. Is there new functionality in the new version that makes the customization redundant?
  • Consider adapting your business processes to make customization redundant.
  • ​Plan the migration well in advance. This gives you more time to evaluate and adapt the customization.
Dynapps' approach to migrations

Bij At Dynapps, we strive to minimize customization during migrations. We do this by:

  • Performing a thorough analysis of the customization. We look at whether the customization is still needed and whether it can be adapted to the new version.
  • Creating a migration plan. This plan includes a timeline and budget for the migration.
  • Providing support during the migration. We help our customers to evaluate and adapt the customization.

By minimising customisation during a migration, you can reduce the costs and complexity of the migration. In addition, you can ensure that your Odoo installation is future-proof.
