New Release Date of Dynamics NAV 2018 and future of Dynamics NAV

It is a good news for all the Microsoft Dynamics NAV partners and for new customers who were waiting for Dynamics NAV 2018 on-premise version. 

The release date of Dynamics NAV 2018:
The wait is finally over and Marko Perisic announced in Madrid last week that we will have the published Dynamics NAV 2018 on December 1st. 

Dynamics NAV 2018 and VS Code Extension v2:
Dynamics NAV 2018 will allow partners to use Visual Studio Code for Extensions v2. This will allow partners to get ready for new Dynamics NAV 2018 R2 version which will be released in spring of 2018.

Same code two names: 
Dynamics NAV 2018 R2 and Dynamics 365 "Tenerife" will have the same codebase even though the names are totally different to each other which might change in near future. 

Rebranding:
Microsoft is thinking of rebranding Microsoft Dynamics NAV. Therefore most probably in future, we will not have the name "Dynamics NAV", but we will still have the powerful product. Future is bright for Dynamics NAV (let's just call it like that for now).


Please provide your feedback with a comment.
