Nobody would have thought that could come of the little and very simple accounting system, three college students in Denmark created in 1984. Today owned by the world largest software company and used by 100000's of customers world wide every day under the name Microsoft Dynamics NAV.
As time goes, then the story also evolves. Some of the events that were really important when they happened, are today long forgotten. I hope that we can continue updating these pages for many years, and make sure that nothing is forgotten. Just for the fun of it.

That's how far we are right now.
The next version of Dynamics NAV is code-named "Madeira", where NAV 2016 had "Corfu" as it's code-name.
These wiki pages about the history of Dynamics NAV has been written and updated since 2010. Originally it was made based upon some even older forum posts here on DUG.
If you have additional information, or good "stories" about some of the bigger events, in the history of Navision, then please either update the page, comment, or send me (Erikemail@example.com) the story, if you don't want/can do it you self. Also links to any news articles would be great.
