Microsoft just released the new name for “Microsoft Dynamics 365 ‘Tenerife'”, where “Tenerife” was just a codename for the next version of “NAV-In-The-Cloud”. And as you might have figured from the title, that name is “Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central”
You might know I’m totally not into “marketing fluff” or “branding” for that matter – so Iwouldn’t know if this is a good name. All I can say: I like it! I like it a lot!
As said – Microsoft just announced today the new branding and some more – by means of a blogpost which you can and should read here. For your convenience, I also copied the content below this blogpost…
We have a date in 16 countries!
As already mentioned in earlier blogposts, we knew that “Tenerife” – sorry – Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central was going to be released in Spring. Well, now we know an exact date: April 2nd 2018! That’s less then a month from now, people!
