How to try out Dynamics 365 Financials in countries, where it’s not official published

In countries like Austria Dynamics 365 Financials is not official published. Therefore people in these countries cannot try it out using there local business email account, they cannot learn, how to use it, cannot write postings about Dynamics 365 topics. Also to be an Dynamics NAV MVP does not help here. It would be nice, if Microsoft finds an official solution for that issue. 

I asked MVP colleague Steven Renders, how this could be done and short time later he published a real cool tutorial.

You start with an O365 Account. With that international official business email account you can start to register for all Dynamics 365 apps.

The next Nav Editions

News from the WPC: The cloud version of Nav – Project Madeira – will be edited in the near future as part of Microsoft’s Cloud based Business Solution Office “Dynamics 365”. The new name is Dynamics 365 – Business Edition. It’s targeted for the SMB market (10 – 250 Employees) and contains the Nav financial module and in the near future also the Sales & Marketing Module.

For bigger companies there will be Dynamics 365 – Enterprise Edition (based on AX).


The Microsoft Dynamics 365 roadmap …


Within Dynamics 365 Nav and AX are “only” tools/modules/apps useable for/with new features: Flow, PowerApps, …

And there will be an OnPremise Nav 2017 ! So be prepared for the next Upgrade round … or change to Dynamics 365, add new functionality only by developing extensions. That will be the future.
