“With the announcement of Dynamics 365 as a cloud-based service platform for delivering business apps, it now appears that Project Madeira could be built out to serve companies that are quite a bit larger,” said Jason Gumpert in a recent article at “Dynamics 365 is expected to be able to handle a full range of customer sizes and its ERP-related capabilities will all originate from either Project Madeira or from the new Dynamics AX on Azure.”

Project Madeira has been described as a cloud based enterprise solution based on Microsoft Dynamics NAV with some GP-like functionality, though Microsoft says they are committed to the continued development of their SMB solutions including Dynamics GP, NAV and SL.
