Dynamics 365 Business Central is now live!


A modern solution for modern businesses

With 160,000+ customers, more than 2.7 million users, and 3500 partners worldwide, Dynamics NAV has sold in 195 countries – that’s pretty much every country in the world. Today we are proud to announce that we are furthering this success story with Dynamics 365 Business Central by making it generally available as a cloud service starting today.

Dynamics 365 Business Central brings the full power of Dynamics NAV to the cloud. As such, Business Central has at its foundation a set of trusted, proven technologies in a single, end-to-end application. As such, Business Central offers:

  • Business without silos. Unify your business, and boost efficiency with automated tasks and workflows—all integrated within familiar Office tools like Outlook, Word, and Excel.
  • Actionable insights. Achieve greater outcomes and gain a complete view of your business with connected data, business analytics, and guidance delivered by Microsoft’s leading intelligent technologies.
  • Solutions built to evolve. Start quickly, grow at your own pace and adapt in real time with a flexible platform that makes it easy to extend Business Central based on your changing business needs.

Because Dynamics 365 Business Central and Dynamics NAV run the same application code base, this empowers us to smoothly transition all our Dynamics NAV partners and customers into Dynamics 365 Business Central. Dynamics 365 Business Central is a cloud first solution, designed for the age of digital transformation powered by the cloud. But it will not be a cloud only solution. In the fall it will be available for self-deployment on premise and in the intelligent edge for customers that prefer that option. For the existing partners and customers, this will be just another upgrade, like they would do for Dynamics NAV, with a name change. For customers interested in the cloud, starting today, Dynamics 365 Business Central offers unprecedented opportunities to drive transformation of the customers’ businesses, increasing their business performance through the power of Microsoft cloud technologies and services.

 

For more information on coming updates, please keep an eye on the roadmap site.

Dynamics 365 Business Central will be generally available on April 2, 2018 in 14 countries – United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Denmark, Netherlands, Germany, Spain, Italy, France, Austria, Switzerland, Belgium, Sweden, and Finland, and will be sold through our Cloud Solution Provider (CSP) partners. Australia and New Zealand will be generally available beginning July 1, 2018. Our network of global partners has the expertise to help you create and deploy a solution that meets your industry-specific needs. Do even more with Dynamics 365 Business Central using pre-built applications, available through the AppSource marketplace, to easily and cost effectively extend your solution.

    Hi Microsoft

    What about the release for the OnPremise version. It was announced as Dynamics NAV 2018 R2 in some Road Maps, eg. at Directions EMEA. Will a new version be released?

    1. navteam says:

      Hi there,
      As the roadmap shows, we’re planning to have a new on-premises version ready for you later this year but not as part of the Spring release.

    2. Badri says:

      Yes, in the fall.
      But 2018R2 is out, and the next version will be called, wait for it……
