What is Dynamics 365 Business Central?
Business Central is an all-in-one business management solution that’s easy to use and adapt, helping you connect your business and make smarter decisions.
With the October ’18 release, Dynamics 365 Business Central is available in the cloud, on-premises, and in hybrid deployments.
Business Central users get a streamlined and refreshed user experience with many productivity improvements, facilitating heavy transactional users. The service is also going through a hardening process, with much improved resiliency, robustness, and performance across the application.
Business Central everywhere – cloud, hybrid, and on-premises availability
Business Central gets an on-premises deployment option that serves as a successor to Dynamics NAV. In other words, rather than a new version number for Dynamics NAV, customers can get Business Central on-premises. The experience for partners and customers on-premises is no different from the familiar Dynamics NAV upgrades, except for the change in name. This is a convergence point for Dynamics SMB products—going forward, they are all considered customers of Business Central, in the cloud or on-premises, even if they are running differently branded products such as Dynamics SL, Dynamics GP, and older versions of Dynamics NAV.
High productivity user experience
Get more work done with productivity features such as filtering of lists and totals, and copy and paste rows. With a host of new keyboard shortcuts to accelerate your business tasks, and improved keyboard navigation throughout, Business Central is ready to support the diverse needs of your workforce. Do things quickly, or find out how to do them with the new Tell Me window.
Business users get a fresh and modern experience in all main screens of Business Central. Whether you are accessing your data from the browser or the Windows 10 desktop app, you will experience a consistently smooth, intuitive, and modern interface as you transition across role centers, lists, worksheets, transaction documents, or details pages (such as the customer card).
It’s a really exciting time to be a Microsoft Dynamics Partner, and with the software set on a Common Data Service, with the rest of the Microsoft 365 Suite, Dynamics is fast becoming the best, and only option.
