A month back, Microsoft launched Dynamics 365 Business Central in North America, which is basically Dynamics NAV in the cloud. A few months later, Dynamics NAV on premises will become Dynamics 365 Business Central on premises.
From the last couple of years, Microsoft Dynamics NAV has evolved significantly to meet the demands of its partners and users. 80% of businesses across the world embraced the potential of cloud, thereby compelling Microsoft to take Dynamics NAV to the cloud. With the adoption of newer technologies by businesses, the amount of data in the cloud as gone immense. Microsoft’s Business Central is more than a cloud-based ERP that allows Microsoft applications, partner products, and third-party solutions to be stored in a common storehouse that is a well-formed, decisively curated, unified data source.
Behind the scene, Dynamics 365 Business Central is integrated with Artificial Intelligence that analyzes the connected data, drive insights, and provide foretelling analytics to enable customers to make informed decisions about their business. All this interconnectivity makes it a unified and intelligent solution.
Integrated. Intelligent. Scalable. This is something we can say as USPs of Dynamics 365 Business Central. With features and capabilities that can be customized as per the needs of a business, it is an all-in-one business management solution by integrating accounting, sales, supply chain, reporting, operations, and project management in one single dashboard. In order to generate real-time, actionable data from every business process, Power BI is embedded throughout the software. Moreover, the user interface (UI) is now cleaner that can be personalized to access more functionalities as and when needed.
According to Microsoft, Dynamics 365 BC serves both as an application and as a platform with full NAV application objects, Dynamics 365 branded vertical solutions, and Microsoft ISV Cloud Embed program where specific vertical add-ons can be built. Since its launch, the software is continually evolving after getting feedbacks and requests from users. The next release of NAV will not be NAV 2019, but Dynamics 365 Business Central on-premises and hosted. It will be the same code base, the same product for both the cloud and on-premises versions. One product with two releases (spring and fall), with continuous updates in between. The on-premises version will be available to avoid disruption for existing on-premises customers, as well as to provide an option for customers and businesses where the cloud is not the preferred option.
