Microsoft Dynamics 365 Release


In October 2016 Microsoft Dynamics 365 will be launched simultaneously at Directions EMEA in Prag and Dynamics User Group convention in Tampa Florida. At this point we will get to see Microsoft Dynamics 365 in action!

As previously discussed, Dynamics 365 will be available in two versions aimed at servicing both the small to midsized business (SMB) and enterprise market.

  • The Business Edition is optimized for organizations with 10-250 users. It is a cloud only offering where the ERP functionality is based on Dynamics NAV, initially with limited CRM functionality.Availability in 2016 will be limited to the USA and Canada, but a roll-out for selected Northern European countries is planned for 2017. It is expected that functionality will be enhanced during 2017, especially with regards to CRM.
  • The Enterprise Edition is optimized for +250 users. It is both a cloud and on premise offering (provided the Azure technology stack is used) that is based on Dynamics AX and CRM Online.
