Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central reaches general availability, with promise of smooth NAV transition to come

Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central & NAV roadmap

Microsoft launches Dynamics 365 Business Central today, April 2, with plans to reach both new prospects looking for a SaaS ERP solution and existing Dynamics NAV customers looking for continuity.

The latest roadmap for Business Central now shows that NAV as a brand name will have no further releases after NAV 2018. There had been plans for NAV 2018 R2 in the autumn of 2018 but that appears to have been scrapped in favor of a move directly to Dynamics 365 Business Central for both cloud and on-premises in the second half of 2018.

Plans for SL

Are there plans being discussed for a migration path from Dynamics SL to D365?

Migration path from Dynamics SL to D365

Yes, not only plans for a migration path, but product as well, already available on the AppSource. I will provide the link below.
Plumbline Consulting has written the tools to help make that transition, with more tools slated to be released on Dynamics 365 Business Central. Jeff Suwyn is the contact - and is likely monitoring here too.
