Microsoft have now announced that Dynamics 365 Business Central on-premise licenses are now available.
When Dynamics 365 Business Central launched it focused on creating an excellent ERP solution that has only been available as a Cloud-Based option. Now with the Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central on premise application users will have the opportunity to apply this solution locally. This does not mean the discontinuation of NAV but a rebranded name in Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central on-premise. Although the suggestion may be to upgrade, those on previous iterations of NAV will still have support for this software.
Microsoft have announced their roadmap for Business Central, with that seemingly being the focus as many operations become fully cloud based or take a hybrid approach.
The release will be available in two main licensing types:
- Subscription Licensing: Purchase based on a specific time based on periodic payments.
- Perpetual Licensing: A user buys permanent usage rights
Dynamics 365 Business Central on premise will offer two types of access licenses for internal users which are Named Client Access Licenses (CALs) which is only available under the Perpetual Licensing model and User Subscription Access Licences (SALs) which is available under the Subscription Licensing Model.
Named CALs are assigned on a “named user” basis which means each user requires a separate User License; Named user licenses cannot be shared but an individual with a named user license can access the application through multiple devices such as a tablet or phone.
A benefit of this is that you do not need to pay any more concurrent users as you currently have to with Dynamics NAV.
