Like the Time Lord’s regeneration from one Doctor to another, the brilliance of Dynamics NAV has also regenerated into the excellence of Dynamics 365 Business Central - the BEST version of NAV ever!
There’s been a lot of hype around Dynamics 365 but also quite a lot of confusion, which isn’t really necessary because Dynamics 365 Business Central and Dynamics NAV are basically the same system! To quote Marko Perisic, (General Manager at Microsoft for the Dynamics NAV team) Dynamics 365 Business Central is ‘the next generation of Dynamics NAV for the age of digital transformation’ unifying the digital assets of Office 365, Power Platform and Azure to help customers digitally transform their business.
So, to put it simply Dynamics 365 Business Central is the new name for Dynamics NAV. At the moment you can only purchase Dynamics 365 Business Central via the shared cloud and if you want it on premise or hosted in a private cloud environment what you’ll get is still called Dynamics NAV. BUT come October 2018 the final re-brand will be rolled out and Dynamics NAV, however you take it – cloud / hosted / on premise will all be renamed ‘Dynamics 365 Business Central’.
Simple answer: Yes. Because Dynamics NAV and Dynamics 365 Business Central are based on the same platform they share all the benefits of the new extensibility, the O365 foundation and the roadmap stretching out in to our digital future.
This means that if you are currently using Dynamics NAV on premise or in your private cloud and you decide later on that the public cloud and the subscription option are a better fit for you, or that you want to upgrade in order to get the latest version of the software, then we can help you to upgrade your current NAV system to Dynamics 365 Business Central.
