Announcing Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central


Since its initial announcement last year, there has been a great deal of discussion and anticipation for details on Microsoft’s replacement for the solution formerly known as Dynamics NAV, until recently codenamed Microsoft Dynamics 365 Tenerife. Microsoft have now announced that the new solution, which sees the functionality of Microsoft Dynamics NAV come together to form one comprehensive business solution in the cloud, will officially be called Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central. As well as announcing its release date of the 2nd of April 2018.

The rumour mill has been spinning in overdrive as partners and end users alike speculate on what exactly ‘Tenerife’ will bring to the table and how it will improve on Microsoft Dynamics NAV. However, Jason Gumpert of MSDynamicsWorld.com has just revealed some useful insight into the details released so far, stating that essential modules will “cover many of the typical NAV functional areas around financial management, simple and advanced inventory, distribution, workflow, contact management, and more”.

As well as the key Dynamics NAV functions, Business Central will join key Microsoft Dynamics 365 CRM applications including Sales and Marketing, PSA and Talent. Gumpert also points out that these features are set to be housed within what Microsoft are referring to as a new “Graphic Identity” which will replace the existing Dynamics 365 identity in use with other Microsoft Dynamics products.

Whilst the exact specifications and functionalities of Business Central are likely to be released in the coming days, it has been made clear that Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central will be the perfect tool for Financial Services companies looking to fully utilise a truly cloud-integrated and intelligent solution for their financial and operation solutions. Many of these benefits which Business Central is set to provide arise from its ability to provide the full functionality of Dynamics NAV as a full SaaS service from Microsoft, allowing for greater flexibility and bespoke management of a company’s solutions, allowing them to continue to power their success.

Business Central’s direct management and hosting by Microsoft will allow end users to rest easy knowing their solution will have full support and assistance coming directly from Microsoft, as well as updates and new functionality provided through the Microsoft cloud. Users will also be able to seamlessly integrate other key Microsoft products such as Microsoft Office 365, PowerBI, PowerApps and Flow within their Business Central solutions, creating a truly connected and powerful Microsoft Dynamics driven solution.

Here at City Dynamics, we’re excited to learn exactly what Business Central will offer and how it could benefit our clients as a solution. So, as further information is released by Microsoft, we will be sure to keep you informed as to how Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central could allow your company to power your success.
