The new name of what used to be known as 'Tenerife', was supposed to have been a secret until March 15th 2018, at the conference Directions ASIA in Bangkok. Instead it was leaked by MSDynamicsWorld March 12th.This made Microsoft come out with an official announcement the next day, that the new name would be Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central.
The overall message had not changed much. The Spring 2018 releases of Dynamics 365 would launch April 2nd. Including the new Business Central. NAV would still be NAV 2018 (no R2) until the Fall releases.
The way Microsoft looked at it then Business Central would be the third generation of a product which started out as Navision. Then evolved into Dynamics NAV, before now becoming |Dynamics 365 Business Central.
The web client had a tune-up, more modern web-page like look, more real-estate. Using PowerBI for charts out of the box. Improved with keyboard shortcuts. But that was needed as the Windows client would not be available for SaaS customers.
Personalization of both the role center and pages got hugely improved, or should we say possible?
