MSDYN365BC 2019 Wave 2 - New Product Release Cycle.

Hi Readers,

Microsoft has changed the Product Release Cycle starting Business Central 2019 Wave 2.

Till now Microsoft uses to release Dynamics NAV once every year and we have seen this for the last few years till Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2018.

But with Business Central Microsoft has changed how the product will be released going forward.

Starting Business Central Microsoft started Releasing product in April and October if you see.

In continuation of the same process, Microsoft has already named these releases and will keep on following that going forward.

Microsoft will release two versions (if you want to call that) every year.

The Two releases will be called as Wave 1 & Wave 2.

Wave 1 - will be released in the first quarter every year.

Wave 2 - will be released in the last quarter every year.

Here is planned from Microsoft about future releases.

What about the product lifecycle. We will discuss this in the next article.

Hope you find the information useful.

Let me know your views as a comment on this article.

Stay tuned for more.

    1. No there is no more CAL.
      Wave 1 is first release for every year and Wave 2 is second release for every year.

MSDYN365BC - Data Upgrade To Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central on premises.

Hi Readers, We have already talked about the number of steps for upgrading to Business Central on Premises from different NAV versions. After that article, I received multiple requests for an article which list down steps for Data Migration. In this article, we will discuss steps of data migration to MSDYN365BC (on-Prem) from NAV 2017. For this article, I am considering a Cronus Demo Database without any customization. For an actual upgrade project, we will have to complete object merge using compare and Merge process. After the Merge Process, the next step is data migration. Let's discuss those steps. Direct Upgrade to Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central (on-Prem) is from following versions - 1. NAV 2015. 2. NAV 2016. 3. NAV 2017. 4. NAV 2018.
