The Many Flavors of Microsoft Dynamics 365 & Dynamics NAV

With the recent release of Microsoft Dynamics 365, we thought it would be timely to explain the different "flavors" of Dynamics 365 and Dynamics NAV and what they mean to you and your business. A recent article published by The NAV People explains the connection between Dynamics 365 & Dynamics NAV: 

"We have been following this development closely and can now confirm that Dynamics 365 is Dynamics NAV. OK, slightly over simplified, but importantly, the software that you use to run your business if you use Dynamics 365 BE is Dynamics NAV hosted in a Microsoft Cloud, by Microsoft. If you use Dynamics NAV and keep on the latest version you are using exactly the same software, just hosted somewhere else (either on your servers or looked after by someone else...). Dynamics 365 is NAV hosted by Microsoft. NAV is Dynamics 365 on other servers."

The NAV People also provided a guide to the different Dynamics 365 versions. Here is a shortened version:

Dynamics 365 for Financials – A simplified Finance, Stock and Order Processing solution based on the Dynamics NAV platform, available in a shared cloud and on a subscription basis.

Dynamics 365 for Sales & Marketing - Also cloud only and with seamless integration to Dynamics 365 for Financials.

Dynamics 365 Business Edition – You will get Dynamics 365 Financials, Sales & Marketing and the extended Dynamics NAV functionality, in one neat subscription price.

Dynamics NAV - It will continue to be the on premise or private cloud option for those looking at a Dynamics ERP solution not in the shared cloud. You can still buy it as well as subscribe to it, and as the core platform for Dynamics 365 Business Edition, it will benefit from the huge investment being made by Microsoft for many years to come.

Dynamics 365 for Operations – A simple rebranding exercise of Dynamics AX, with the biggest and bravest move to make it a subscription only platform. If you want on premise you have to buy an old version of AX.

Dynamics 365 Sales, Customer Service, Field Service, Project Service AutomationMarketing and Customer Insights – Microsoft realizes that when buying a CRM solution you may not want everything it has to offer, so part of the Dynamics 365 rebranding was to offer the modular elements as separate offerings.

Dynamics 365 Enterprise Edition –Microsoft is bundling Dynamics 365 for Operations and the various modules that were Dynamics CRM online into a neat little bundle.
