Microsoft Dynamics GP, NAV add new subscription licensing option beyond SPLA

SPLA licensing for Microsoft Dynamics GP and NAV is not dead, as has been suggested, but it has been augmented with a new subscription license that will give VARs and hosting partners better flexibility to tailor solution options and compete in the SMB ERP space.

Subscription Licensing (as we'll call it here, as opposed to SPLA) isn't actually all that new. It only became broadly available for Dynamics GP 2013 and NAV 2013 R2 in early 2014 but it was in beta for about a year and a half, says Carl Radecke, who leads pricing and  licensing for Microsoft's SMB ERP products.
