Get your add-ons ready for Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2018 and Dynamics 365 Business Central, the only technology supported on AppSource.

Starting with Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2018, you can take advantage of Extensions v2.0 technology to isolate add-ons from the core Microsoft Dynamics NAV application, which will make upgrades easier and reduce the total cost of ownership for customers.

With Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central, Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) will find most of the features for building their solution as Extension for Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central.

ISVs owning add-on solutions for Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2017 and earlier versions can also take advantage of easily distributing and implementing their solution as an Extension. Extension solutions are the only way to distribute your solution through AppSource for cloud of Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central and get the opportunity to grow your cloud customer base. Some of the functionality and code of add-ons can be upgraded to Extensions, but in most cases, due to the constraints of Extensions, it might also mean redesigning the add-on product.

80% of businesses embrace the cloud or plan to do so. Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central becomes an appealing option for the existing Microsoft Dynamics NAV customers. However, most of them have customizations of standard NAV functionality to meet their business needs. Reimplementing customizations as an Extension is the only way to have customer-specific modifications in the cloud version of Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central.

Why 1ClickFactory for Extension development?

1ClickFactory covers the full range of services needed on your journey to Extensions:

  • Usually the first logical step of converting an existing add-on solution to Extension is building a high-level plan business case. Scoping Workshop addresses these needs. Based on the analysis, 1ClickFactory will identify the functionality that can/cannot be migrated to an Extension, conduct a workshop to determine with the ISV the scope of the upgrade project. Optionally, the scope could be defined as a split of work between the ISV and 1ClickFactory.
