With the merged infrastructure, you can achieve centralised visibility control and reduce the overall cost. With this feature, you can get the capabilities in different areas, including leave and absence management, benefits management and task management.

Note: The migration for each organisation will depend on its current configuration. For example: if your organisation uses Dynamics 365 Human Resources but doesn’t use any other Finance and Operations apps, your human resources will migrate to the new infrastructure.
