Today, Microsoft has published the first public preview of “Project Madeira”. I’ve just installed and opened this version. This will be the first Microsoft ERP as SaaS. Microsoft continues with their vision “cloud-first-mobile-first”. We can use this software as App on WP, iOS and Android phones and tablets and as web application. When you look this on the first sight you can see, it look like as Microsoft Dynamics NAV and this is basically NAV, but only in the root.
You will see, this system has only the basic features, something similar as Small Business Role Center in older NAV versions, but this is not the same. There are a lot very interesting things and this is only first impression about it, but it look awesome.
For example, you can see your items on three different ways (bricks, tiles or list) as you can see on this picture:
This is only one nice features and I need to check more to give you a complete user experience. I’ll spend few next days with Madeira and you will find more about this product soon. I expected something new and awesome, but this is really something amazing. Currently I can just repeat Microsoft words: Microsoft is reinventing business productivity with Project “Madeira.”
