06th Jan 2022

Hopefully you’ll already be aware but if your organisation is using Dynamics NAV 2017 (what was Navision, now widely replace with Business Central) then it’s about to be removed from mainstream support by Microsoft… on the 11th of January this year.


Although Dynamics NAV isn’t available for new customers anymore there are still some older versions out there that Microsoft are withdrawing support for one by one and the 11th Jan, 2022 is when Dynamics NAV 2017 becomes unsupported (for mainstream support).


That does raise the question however… what should users be doing with their NAV 2017 systems?

Extended support… for security updates only… will still be available for another five years but it means your NAV 2017 won’t be receiving any more of those awesome and regular feature updates, which, in a constantly changing world, is quickly going to make your systems legacy.


There are easy options however and if you’re worried about the path your organisation needs to take now then cloudThing will be happy to discuss how Business Central can step into the gap and help.


Not thought about Digital Transformation before? Maybe now’s the time?
