Microsoft Dynamics NAV in a Browser: Driven by Web Services, Vendors Race Ahead with Offerings as Microsoft Prepares Own Approach

Going as far back as mid-2008, in his preview of NAV 2009, Eric Wauters rightly foresaw the opportunity: "Just imagine what integration possibilities this is going to offer. Communication with mobile devices, third party applications, web sites...And all of his over the net... The sky is the limit."
