Two weeks after Directions EMEA is finished, we finally got the newest release of NAV. Now we have NAV 2017 and we expect Dynamics 365 BE during the next year (I think on non-US market). We sow the AND story about NAV and Dynamics 365, but I still think NAV partners are on the very important crossroads. I don’t expect they need to choose what business they will need to continue, because I strongly believe we can continue with both of these products, but I’m sure partners have to change their approach to this business. And this is not connected with NAV or Dyn365; new approach must be used for both of them. They have to find the best possible way to transfer their business to cloud, they have to change the way of developing (extensions, events…) and so on.
Because of that, I strongly recommend to all Dynamics partners to read the good story on MSDynamicsWorld about how Microsoft Dynamics NAV partners face crucial decisions on their future. This article can help to NAV partners how to focus thinking about their businesses. Early adopters of new business model will be in much better positions in the future and because of that it is very important not to become obsolete.
