CRM 2011 to Dynamics 365 Upgrade

CRM 2011 to Dynamics 365 Upgrade

I have completed the Development upgrade using in-place upgrades to go from 2011 to 2013 to 2015 to 2016 to 2016.8.2.  This will remain the Dev server,

There is a Windows 2016/SQL 2016 server configured to be the Production server.

When I pull the Production bak file from the current CRM 2011/SQL 2008 system, is there a way to go directly to CRM 2016/SQL 2016 without going through all the version jumps that I did on the Dev servers?

It seems that since I have a CRM 2016 Dev server, there may be a way to update the CRM 2016/SQL 2016 servers with latest Production data to cut over.

Thanks

No, unfortunately the CRM 2011 SQL backup must go through the same upgrade process via 2013, 2015 to 2016.

Thanks for the response.  So can I re-use the Dev server that I just used to upgrade from CRM 2011 to CRM 2016.8.2 to do the in-place upgrades but with the latest CRM 2011 production bak?  

Then I plan on copying the last CRM 2016 bak and copying it to the Windows 2016/SQL 2016 (with CRM 2016 pre-installed) and creating the Production org on the Dynamics 365 server.

Thanks
