We are excited to reveal the new name for the next generation of Microsoft Dynamics NAV - previously known by the code name Dynamics 365 “Tenerife” - as NAV transforms into a true Cloud Ready Software Solution. The name is Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central.
Pure Cloud First
In 2017, Microsoft announced that "Dynamics NAV" and the cloud version, "Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations, Business edition", would be advanced as a single solution - for both cloud and on-premises.
The cloud-based Dynamics 365 Business Central is the first release of the single solution. It is a business management solution with full NAV capabilities. Later this year, Business Central will be available for on-premises deployment and private hosting.
Price Points & Functionality
Business Central is available at two price points: Essential and Premium.
Essential includes: Financial Management, Customer Relational Management, Supply Chain Management, Human Resources, Project Management and other functionality like extended text and Outlook integration.
Premium includes the following, in addition to what is offered in Essential: Service Order Management, Manufacturing.
