Microsoft is changing the way Microsoft Dynamics 365 updates will be delivered: major cloud updates will be deployed twice a year in April and October to provide new capabilities and functionality to all Dynamics 365 users. These updates will be backwards compatible, while regular performance updates will be rolled out throughout the year as before, ensuring business continuity for organizations.
Whereas customers were able to skip a cloud release, they will no longer be able to do so, as all users will now be required to migrate to the latest version with each new release. For this reason, all users will have to be on the new version before January 31, 2019.
What does this mean for your organization?
This new continuous update deployment will bring several benefits to users and organizations using Dynamics 365:
This continuous update deployment will make it important to follow best practices and use as many features out of the box as possible to ensure smooth migrations. That said, organizations will be able to accelerate their digital transformation in a consistent and predictable manner, overall increasing reliability and performance.
