Dynamics ERP Version History

Microsoft Dynamics ERP (Formerly known as Navision or Dynamics NAV) has been around since 1984.  Having $1 billion plus annual R&D spend, over 140,000 Companies using and since 2014 annual release cycles many end user are presented with a range of options to keep their product current.  We often classify the major generational changes in Dynamics NAV into:

  • Generation 1 (NAV 2009 R2 or earlier) also known as the Classic client.
  • Generation 2 (NAV 2013 to NAV 2018) also known as the Role Tailored client.

Some would say the next release Dynamics 365 Business Central represents Generation 3 in the Dynamics NAV evolution.

For existing users we offer a range of tried and tested upgrade options and also include the option, once on a current release, to add an upgrade subscription ensuring annual upgrades at a guaranteed fixed monthly price.

Technical Upgrade Option

A Technical Upgrade is a low cost option to get to the latest Dynamics NAV and SQL Server version for your generation release.  For earlier Generation 2 users it also opens the possibility to move to a Cloud/Hosted platform.  To understand some of the benefits and get an outline cost simply submit the contact us panel on this page.

Re-Start Upgrade Option

If you want to standardise ALL your code but also KEEP ALL your data then a Re-Start Upgrade is the option for you.  Any feature GAP Fits can be addressed by Events, Extensions or ISV addons as appropriate. This can be performed from Generation 1 to Generation 2 or within Generation 2 versions.

Re-Deploy Upgrade Option

If a fresh start is what is needed then with a Re-Deploy Upgrade only selected data will be migrated and ALL objects (Tables and Code) will revert to standard Dynamics.  Any feature GAP Fits can be addressed by Events, Extensions or ISV addons as appropriate.  This can be performed from Generation 1 to Generation 2 or within Generation 2 versions.

Full Upgrade Option

If you like what you have  and just want to future proof or avail of new features then a Full Upgrade is what’s needed.  We will of course first review your installation and advise if any of your customisations are redundant, now standard features or have ISV addon alternative offerings.  This can be performed from Generation 1 to Generation 2 or within Generation 2 versions.
