We are currently running Dynamics NAV 2013 R2 on-premise. On top of that we are running both CRM (Dynamics 365 Plan 1 Enterprise Edition) and Office (Office 365 Business Premium) in the cloud.
We want to move NAV to the cloud as well to be able to integrate it with CRM, but we are finding it hard to find information about this kind of move.
Hence, we have a few questions that you guys hopefully can help us with:
I also should mention that we are currently using Active Directory on-premise, but we are looking into moving to Azure AD (+ Intune) if that makes any difference for the setup.
NAV on Premise can be integrated with CRM online just today, using standard connectors or (better) implementing custom connectors (using WS).
Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operation will be the name of the SaaS NAV offering, actually not available for all countries.
Actually you've different way of moving you on-premise NAV to the cloud:
1) Moving NAV database and service tier to Azure VM (more than 1 VM please...)
2) Moving NAV database to Azure SQL and NAV Service tier on an Azure VM
3) SaaS: Dynamics 365 (not full NAV features now).
In all case, you can import NAV data to the cloud solution.
Is there a link to the process of importing on-premise NAV to BC 365?
There's no a link, it depends on the situation and the environment you have (case by case).
Here you want to move NAV 2013 R2 to the cloud, so you need first to understand what do you mean by cloud: a totally SaaS solution like D365BC or a IaaS solution like moving your existing NAV infrastructure to Azure on VMs?
