The Dynamics

A Dummy's Guide

Back To Skool

Unsurprisingly many people find themselves confused by all the flavours of Dynamics available.

There’s Dynamics 365 Business Central, Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations, Dynamics NAV, Dynamics 365 for Sales, Dynamics 365 for Marketing and that’s not all of them! So here’s a really quick overview of what’s what!

Dynamics 365 Business Central

Microsoft are serious about leading the charge in to the digital future and that can be clearly seen in their commercial approach for Dynamics 365 Business Central.

It connects people and processes with a single system that has intelligence built in—making financial management, sales, service, and operations easier … and all in one neat subscription price! Simple, competitive and the best value for money we have seen for a long time.

A simple rebranding exercise of Dynamics AX saw their Enterprise platform get a new dress and some lipstick.

The biggest and bravest move was to make it a subscription only platform. If you want an on premise option you have to buy an old version of AX. It’s either an incredibly insightful move by Microsoft or the more cynical may say a final roll of the dice for this oft troubled platform.

What you call Dynamics 365 Business Central when it's on premise or in the private cloud!

For the time being if you want Dynamics 365 Business Central on premise or in the private cloud then what you will buy is Dynamics NAV.  However, come October 2018 Microsoft will rebrand this name to Dynamics 365 Business Central on premise / hosted.  It will make things a lot simpler after-all!

Microsoft have learnt an awful lot over the last few years and are taking all that knowledge to do a ground up rewrite for the CRM space, also cloud only, this promises to be something very exciting and with it’s seamless integration to Dynamics 365 Business Central a true pioneer for the next generation of business apps.
