Dynamics 365 Business Central, the all-in-one ERP business management solution aimed at small and medium businesses, was released as a cloud solution in April 2018. Now (October 2018) it’s available as an on-premises solution, replacing the Dynamics NAV product. It’s only available through the Dynamics Price List (DPL) and the licensing is explained in a Licensing Guide which you can find on the PartnerSource portal here: http://bit.ly/2RxQrIv.
Customers who license the on-premises solution may move to the cloud solution by purchasing Business Central Cloud Add-on licences. Premium and Team Member Add-ons are available and one or the other must be acquired for all Business Central On-Premises users. Find details on page 90 of the October 2018 Product Terms document.
In addition, existing Business Central cloud users licensed with active User Subscription Licences may install the Business Central On-Premises server software and access it under their current licences. Find details on page 21 of the October 2018 Online Services Terms document.
The Product Terms and Online Services Terms documents are updated monthly and you can find the current and archived versions here: http://bit.ly/MSproductterms.
Microsoft announce Dynamics 365 Business Central. This is essentially an ERP system for small and medium sized businesses giving them a single solution for managing finances, operations, sales and customer service. If you’re familiar with the on-premises solution Dynamics NAV, then this is full NAV functionality in the cloud, and if you’ve heard of Project “Tenerife” then this is that.
Dynamics 365 Business Central will be available from 2nd April, 2018 through the CSP program and for full users of the solution there will be an Essentials User SL for $70 per user per month and a Premium User SL for $100.
