A “Clean start” Upgrade to Microsoft Dynamics Business Central SaaS

If you read our previous blog post on a Phased transition to Business Central SaaS (if you haven’t yet, you really should read it😊) you would have noticed that we refer to Dynamics 365 Business Central in the Cloud (Microsoft’s Software as a Service solution or ‘SaaS’ for short) as to the Eldorado, or destination of gold and eternal bliss. However, if your current version of Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central is very outdated, you may wind up in a Sisyphean whereabouts, rather than Eldorado.

The fact is, though, that we are not ready to move all types of customer installations to Business Central SaaS, today.

To Business Central or not to Business Central, That is the Question?

The changes that Microsoft have made not only encompass changes with the basic concept (the solution is now also available in the Cloud, without losing any strength in customization), but there have also been significant changes to the core of Microsoft Dynamics NAV, which is changing the application development language, basically for the first time since 1990. This will bring a lot of advantages for customers but also requires Microsoft ISVs and partners to rewrite a large portion of the code that has been built into their customer base since 1995.
