Whether you are live on Business Central, in the throws of
implementation or considering an upgrade from your legacy
environment - NAV or otherwise - Microsoft is delivering an
exciting bundle of updates with the shipment of Dynamics 365 2020
Release Wave 2. And it's worth paying attention.
Interestingly, the main focus is on adapting the platform to
support the demands of a rapidly growing customer base. Business
Central has one of the fastest growing user bases of any Microsoft
app which has caused some problems in the past. We are excited for
the promise of improved performance! Other highlights include:
handling of file storage, geographic expansion, top customer
requested features, and deeper integration with
Get Ready For...
Seamless service: Performance, reliability,
and supportability are all three essential to ensure that the
service quality remains ahead of the growth in usage.
Accessibility, already in a strong position, must be preserved, and
better support for resizing pages is added. The Business Central
2020 release wave 2 also incorporates the results of a material
top-to-bottom investment in Business Central service security
enabling further telemetry visibility for partners through Azure
Insights, and it brings improvements in conflict handling for
synchronization with Common Data Service.
Productivity: This release continues a
commitment toward world-class productivity with enhancements to the
modern clients, and requested features such as returning to the
request page after previewing a report, and the ability to change
the assigned printer before printing a report.
Microsoft Power Platform integration: This
release includes further investments in the integration with
Power Platform. Microsoft is investing in both existing
connectors as well as enabling virtual entities. Cannot stress
enough how important this is! As an experienced implementor, we
recommend our clients save time, money and headaches by ditching
custom coded apps where possible in favor of the Power Platform and
Microsoft Flow to deliver required functionality that's unique to
Better with Office 365: Integration with
Microsoft Teams helps teams collaborate and make decisions faster
by accessing their business data from Teams channels. When you try
this out you will be amazed at how easy, and therefore useful, this
Geographic expansion: The 2020 release wave 2
lays the foundation for future onboarding of more countries and
regions. Next up: Brazil, Ireland, and Lithuania.
Customer-requested enhancements: Business
Central continues to focus on responding to top customer
enhancement requests. In addition to multiple features harvested
from the product Ideas portal, top feedback areas such as email
setup and use is enhanced.
Last, but certainly not least:
Customer migration tools: To simplify the
journey for existing Dynamics customers to Business Central online,
support is added for migration from a broader set of Dynamics GP
and Dynamics NAV versions. Improvements are also made for selective
migration of Dynamics GP customers and vendors along with enhanced
migration of Dynamics GP Chart of Account setups.
Together, these enhancements are designed to empower the
migration from various versions of Dynamics on-premises,improve
service quality, supportability, end-user productivity, and provide
better experiences for customers.
