Microsoft Dynamics NAV in a Browser: Driven by Web Services, Vendors Race Ahead with Offerings as Microsoft Prepares Own Approach
With the release of Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 and the subsequent R2 update, Microsoft opened up an impressive range of functionality through web services.

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."
