Microsoft Dynamics NAV to Begin Annual Release Cycles with NAV "Sicily" in 2013
Microsoft Dynamics NAV product team members today reiterated their plans to introduce a one year release cycle in 2013 with a release codenamed "Sicily", also known as NAV 8.
Building on the NAV 2013 3-tier platform and three standard user interfaces - desktop, web client, and SharePoint, the "Sicily" release will introduce a new flat Windows 8 interface for some workloads, and will use the R&D team's recently adopted agile development process to more quickly build out production-ready features.
"That style of development is core and central to what NAV clients need," said Dynamics ERP SMB product manager Elizabeth Alexander, speaking to users at NAVUG Forum today in Seattle. She was joined by Brett Johnson, a senior program manager for Dynamics NAV.
