Dynamics 365 Business Central Updated Roadmap

A few days ago, after the first day and first keynote of Directions NA, I’ve posted Business Central roadmap. But now after this event has finished, we can find updated roadmap for our NAV successor – Dynamics 365 Business Central and it looks very interesting:

D365BC Roadmap

I’ll wait Directions EMEA to collect all information and write more detailed about this, but from my point of few, big changes are coming in two years and this is the last moment to change some old habits and to continue our journey in modern business applications.

Dynamics 365 Business Central Roadmap

Directions NA has just started this year. Unfortunately, this year I have to miss this event, but thanks to my friends I can share some information. This time, I’ll share only the future roadmap for Dynamics 365 Business Central:

Also, something new is that from the next year, Directions will held during the spring and the next year it will be in Las Vegas, Nevada.

My Dynamics Events Sessions – Fall 2018

For all of you who want to see what I prepared for this year conference season, I can share that I’ll have sessions on two conferences this fall.

First, I’ll be on BCUG/NAVUG Summit at Phoenix, AZ, US and after that I’ll be on Directions EMEA in the Hague. On both of these conferences, I’ll have the similar sessions – How and Why You Should Combine ‘Dynamics 365 for Talent’ with ‘Dynamics 365 Business Central’ / ‘Dynamics NAV’. But the first one will be more how you can do it if you are user, a the second one how you can do it as partner and how you can make this as a model for the future implementations.

I already know terms, and it will be Wednesday, October 17 at 2:30 PM – 3:30 PM at BCUG/NAVUG Summit and Wednesday, October 31 at 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM at Directions EMEA. If you like this topic or think this topic can be interesting, join me there.

Dynamics 365 Business Central Localizations

When Dynamics 365 Business Central started from April 2nd this year, we had Microsoft official localizations for the first 14 countries: US, Canada, UK, Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, The Netherlands, Italy, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland. From this July we’ve got 2 another countries Australia and New Zealand and with October release we will get 3 new official localizations for Iceland, Norway and Mexico. It will be in a total 19 Microsoft official localizations +W1.

But on Inspire we could hear that we can expect partner led localizations and that Microsoft wants to encourage partners all around the world to start with partner model localizations and to publish them on AppSource. In a meantime we’ve got 3 first partner’s localizations for Korea, UAE and South Africa and they are already available on AppSource.

D365BC localizations

On Inspire and Business Apps Summit this year, we could see announced some another countries with partner led localizations and we will have the more and more in the next few months (it will not be a fair to emphasize some specific country, but we can find them on AppSource soon).

If partners want to start with localization process in their country, the best what they can do is to visit the following page: http://aka.ms/BusinessCentralLocApps.

All necessary information for submitting and development are available there.

Summit EMEA 2019

Summit EMEA 2018 in Dublin has just finished yesterday and I still try to count all impressions. It was the great one with 221 sessions and now we can start to think about the next year Summit.

Only one part was missing – NAVUG part of the Summit and I really hope that we will have NAVUG Summit in EMEA the next year, especially because now NAV (of course Business Central) is a very important part of Dynamics 365 family. Before that I’m happy to see all UG’s in Phoenix later this year.

And now, where will Summit EMEA be the next year?

Currently we have four options to choose: Amsterdam, Barcelona, London or Nice. If you want to give your vote, it is not too late and you can do it here. The last time when I checked results, it was like that:

Anyway, see you in one of the these four cities the next year.
