Happy New Year and small retrospect

In three days, it will be the end of this year. I have just finished new “How Do I” video and I have plan to finish one more tomorrow. I hope these two my last videos in 2014. years would be interesting.

I want to remind you that you can find all “How Do I” video about NAV 2015 on MSDN here. Very soon, we will have a special well organized places on Partner Source.

Now, few more words about this year. Personally, it’s been a really great year! Thanks for being a part of it. In this year, I become an MVP and I got Customer Excellence Award on Convergence Europe. I had a lot of very interesting projects and lectures, as well. Also, on my personal plan, I has some very good news (but, this is intimately).

I want to say thanks to all people that supported me (and people that do not supported me :-)). I want to all of you to have a year that is better than I already had this year. I also hope, we will get an awesome new version of NAV (‘Corfu’) next year.

And, of course, special thanks to my friends all around the world and especially to my family (my wife, son and dog).

Mainstream Support for NAV 2009 Ends

Mainstream support for all Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 versions ends January 13th, 2015. This is the last NAV version with the classic client. Of course, NAV 2009 also has RTC client, but a lot of companies use classic client. That means, Microsoft ends with classic client support.

Upgrade

Maybe, this is the right moment to think about upgrade to the newer NAV versions. In this situation I recommend NAV 2015. With the new Microsoft Dynamics policy, we have new cumulative updates every month, and if you use them, you will stay current in the future. That means, you will not have a need for new upgrade in following years, because you will always have the newest version. This will make a less of your investment in the future and less your users adapts to new versions – a lot of benefits.
