Microsoft releases Dynamics 365 Business Central Capabilities

Just in time for the general release of Dynamics 365 Business Central coming on April 2nd, Microsoft has released an overview of the capabilities of the new business management system. 

If you haven’t heard about Dynamics 365 Business Central, Microsoft recently announced it as a single -end-to-end business management application built on Dynamics NAV in the Azure Cloud. Because it is cloud based, it is constructed to integrate with other Microsoft cloud services including Office 365, PowerApps, Microsoft Flow, and Power BI.

User Interface

Along with capabilities, Microsoft also released the first look at what the user interface will look like in Business Central. If you have worked with any other Dynamics 365 or Office 365 application, it should be familiar. It is clear Microsoft is trying to unify their user interfaces across applications to make the user experience more cohesive and simple.
