The ERP Solution Navision

“Navision” was the previous name of Microsoft’s ERP solution. To this day, we support many companies in upgrading from Navision to Dynamics 365 Business Central.

ERP System from Microsoft:

What Is Navision?

Navision was one of the most popular ERP systems worldwide.

Why was it so popular? Originally, Navision was the name of Microsoft’s software solution. It was later renamed Microsoft Dynamics NAV. Then, in 2018, it underwent its most recent renaming to Dynamics 365 Business Central. Over time, Microsoft has optimized its ERP software and expanded its offerings. To this day, the ERP solution has remained prominent in many industries and companies. Even though the ERP system no longer bears this name, “Navision” is still widely recognized.

Renamed and Changed:

One ERP Solution and Three Names?

Microsoft’s ERP solution has evolved over the years, with enhancements and enriched features and deployment options. This evolution has led to various name changes. For detailed information on all versions, we also provide you with our “Zeitreise-Blogartikel” (German Article).

Navision

Microsoft took over the already developed Danish company Navision Software A/S in 2002 and integrated it into the Microsoft Business Solutions division.

Later, the umbrella brand Dynamics was created and the name was changed to Dynamics NAV (for SMEs). Dynamics AX was also developed for large companies.

    • How does an upgrade from Dynamics NAV to Dynamics 365 Business Central work?

      There are different methods for upgrading from Dynamics NAV to Dynamics 365 Business Central. Generally, the waterfall model or an agile approach are distinguished. We have developed our own agile methodology:

      First, we conduct rough planning within 3-4 days (all necessary functionalities, project start, framework conditions).

      Then, we proceed with the implementation in 4-week iterative phases or sprints. In each phase, we plan the sprint, conceptualize the tasks and the budget, and implement them. At the end of each phase, the client must test the implementations and assess the quality. Then, the next implementation phase begins. Any tasks that are not completed are carried over to the next implementation phase. This process is repeated in each of the implementation phases.

      At the end, the implementations are compiled. Then, we train your team and let them extensively test the system before going live.

      You can find all the information about upgrading from Dynamics NAV to Dynamics 365 Business Central on our Upgrade page.

    • How do I set up Dynamics NAV?

      The method and duration of setting up Dynamics NAV (since 2018 Dynamics 365 Business Central) vary from company to company. Various factors come into play, such as deployment option, size, and the proportion of individual requirements.

      The deployment of the online solution takes only a few minutes. The duration of setting up your on-premises solution is longer, primarily due to the setup of the on-premises (local) components, including necessary server systems (database, application, etc.). Additionally, the following points are relevant:

      • Possible support during system introduction (highly individual)
      • Setting up the Microsoft 365 (formerly Office 365) environment: Creating new user accounts or migrating/synchronizing local Active Directory accounts for easier management (highly individual)
      • Possibly transferring extensions (highly individual)
