Microsoft Dynamics NAV and LS Nav: a roadmap to a bright future

Microsoft Dynamics NAV and LS Nav: a roadmap to a bright future

We are often asked about the roadmap of Microsoft Dynamics NAV and LS Nav. In a business world that is in constant change, what does the future of these solutions look like?

Microsoft Dynamics NAV: a long-term commitment

Microsoft has committed to continued development and enhancement of Microsoft Dynamics NAV as an on-premises solution for the foreseeable and unforeseeable future. In addition, Microsoft has introduced a new offering of Dynamics NAV in the cloud, Dynamics 365 Business edition (introduced in early 2016 as “Project Madeira”).

Microsoft Dynamics NAV will continue to be developed both as an on-premises solution and as Software as a Service (SaaS) in Dynamics 365.

“LS Retail is fully committed to continued development and support of LS Nav as an on-premises solution. At the same time, we also plan to offer the full version of LS Nav as SaaS in Dynamics 365. Customers will be able to choose their preferred deployment method.”

– Matthias Matthiasson
LS Nav Product Director

LS Retail: continued development on-premises and in the cloud

LS Retail will continue to invest in, develop and support LS Nav as an on-premises solution. At the same time, on December 1st 2016 we introduced an entry-level retail POS solution on the Dynamics 365 Business edition, LS Express for Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Financials. In the coming Dynamics 365 releases LS Retail also plans to offer LS Nav as a full-blown solution in the cloud, on the Dynamics 365 platform. LS Nav customers will therefore have the choice to run their system on-premises or as Software as a Service (SaaS) in the cloud as part of Dynamics 365. This offering will also include total integration with other products in the Microsoft stack such as Office 365, Power BI, Cortana and Azure.
