The official Mcrosoft’s announcement of the upcoming release of Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central (the SaaS ERP proposition based on NAV core, available from April 2, 2018, that I will call here D365BC) has generated lots of excitements and lots of rumours at the same time.
I want to try here to help answering many questions that I’m receiving in these days.
As a first step, I want to clarify the main hot topic I see every day: is NAV on-premise dead?
NO!!! On-Premise will be always supported. The Microsoft’s roadmap was announced in these days and it’s very clear:
From Spring, we’ll have NAV 2018 and D365BC. We will have NAV 2018 Cumulative Updates every months until this fall. Then NAV on-premise will be rebranded too as Dynamics 365 Business Central. We will have the on-premise and the SaaS version, with the same features and UI. You can choose if for your business a SaaS proposition can fit your needs or if an on-premise solution is the best for you. You’re not absolutely forced to go in the cloud!
