In March 2018, Microsoft declared its attitude and RoadMap for its old ERP – Business System
They made it very simple, actually a bit unusual about Microsoft!
Microsoft simply drops ERP
→ Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Applications (launshed 2016)
→ Microsoft Office Business Center (for small businesses, office together with business applications
End-to-End system (Analog)
(however, the same meaning as All-in-One, ERP)
→ These systems have roots from 1980-90, both technological and working methods!
→ A new name and loga was launched Dynamics 365 Business Central, Dynamics NAV in new Azure clothing, under the arms of Microsoft (technologically).
The system is a refresh of the old system Dynamics NAV, the solution is probably not made to attract new customers! It’s probably done to keep existing partners and customers calm while converting at ease to Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Applications or the new Office Business Center!
Probably, existing Dynamics NAV customers will seek other solutions as they realize what huge cost, what sacrifices it takes to upgrade, and to stay in the old analog world!
From just an economic point of view, a change to Dynamics 365 Business Application will pay off quite quickly!
Business Application is not about ERP, but ERP is part of Business Application.
We are now in the middle of a major technology shift, as is the case with ERP, which is now being seriously challenged by Business Application. Business Application uses new technology, but the biggest change must come from the companies themselves. It requires a business strategy that is integrated with the Digital Strategy, a change process, a new way of thinking, a new ”Mindset”.
A business and business perspective
Dynamics 365 is based on an offensive market perspective, manages all business’s business features, which creates value for the company or organization. Dynamics 365 represents a new way of thinking and working on new technology made for ”The New Digital World” A solution that is automatically updated, a solution that can be easily expanded or changed. Everything is done automatically, fast and easy!
Simply adapt to a world of fast and moving goals!
It requires simplicity and a new ”Mindset”
Dynamics 365 is part of a larger whole of Microsoft, built to work with other Microsoft’s business critical applications. Companies should integrate their business plan / strategy with their Digital and IT strategy, the solution will be an important and strategic Business system.
A technical perspective
Dynamics 365, a service and component-based thinking, modularly built with latest technology, on the Azure platform interacts with other systems and with everything and everyone. Imagine a modern mobile phone, easy to install, suggests new apps that seem to suit your needs , all apps automatically work together. About the same principle for Dynamics 365 Business Application, amazing or how?
A solution that is automatically updated, a solution that can be easily expanded or changed. Everything is done automatically, fast and easy!
End to End -ERP system
The Old World End-to-End ERP (All-in-One)
ERP, based on a defensive cost-saving perspective, enhancing internal processes. ERP’s previous processes are part of Dynamics 365, revised, updated and new, they will increasingly be automated.
ERP, most of today’s established ERP systems are based on 80-90’s technology, they are built for a centralist and homogeneous environment within four walls. They are based on old technology that does not work in a modern cloud-based World.
