Goodbye Microsoft NAVContinue reading
The Dynamics NAV brand will be retired in the second half of 2018. With NAV 2018 general availability penciled in for December 2017 and NAV 2018 R2 due the following spring, the brand will then be absorbed into the Dynamics 365 family. This move from Microsoft is a rebranding rather than a cancelling of the NAV product.
The rebranded NAV will continue receiving annual updates as an on-premises solution, and together with the current SMB cloud option (Dynamics 365 Finance and Operations Business Edition), will come under the umbrella of Dynamics 365 ‘Tenerife’. The Dynamics product range has gone through several name changes in the last 12 months and, no doubt, there will be more to come.
As a cloud-first (but not cloud-only) company, Microsoft can be expected to devote more energy to its cloud-hosted solutions. However, Marko Perisic, Dynamics 365 R&D general manager, stated at the NAVUG Summit 2017 that for any investments made to the cloud solutions, Microsoft will “mirror those for customers who are on-premises”.
Further along the roadmap, however, it is expected that Microsoft will position Dynamics 365 Tenerife as a business application platform that offers a full range of capabilities through separate modules, backed up by the Common Data Service.

This is why it is so important to have a reliable service team to help the company control the system in the post-implementation stage. In this article, we take a look at the issues surrounding the implementation of an ERP system and the benefits of maintaining proactive service support.
328.77 million terabytes of data are generated every day - this is the estimate for the first quarter of 2023 (1). These are massive amounts of data on a global scale. On a smaller scale, such as an enterprise, it's difficult to estimate because it depends on the organisation in question, but one thing is certain - collecting, processing and analysing this data is the key to business success today. Why is the Data Lake service so important for data analysis and reporting in Microsoft Dynamics 365 Finance and Operations? How can you tame the data by integrating Microsoft Power BI analytics with Data Lake? We have drawn up some tips.
