Four Steps to Planning Your Microsoft Dynamics NAV Upgrade

If you are a user of Microsoft Dynamics NAV, the impending arrival of NAV 7 (currently scheduled for late-2012) may inspire excitement, or it may inspire dread. Either way, it is inevitable; you have to start planning for a transition.

As Microsoft's Todd Bergeson, senior product marketing manager, told a room full of NAV users at NAVUG in Las Vegas on Nov. 8, "To get to (NAV) 7, you have to go through 2009." Those still on version 4 or 5, can't jump, Bergeson added, because of release 7's SQL server requirement and its switch from the Classic Client to the Role Tailored Client. The upgrade may be done all at once, but a transition through 2009 is unavoidable.

120 Days!

Quoted slightly out of context! What we have yet to see is pricing for the extended support, despite Microsoft's promise that detail for extended support would be available 120 days before mainstream support ends. We do expect an additional charge for the hotfix agreement on top of the BREP. Will post information on the TVision blog when we have it, unless anyone has been more successful acquiring pricing?
