NAV 2018 'Tenerife' roadmap
One of the great advantages of Microsoft's ERP platform, Dynamics NAV, is largely the expanded functionality gained by combining the ERP solution with other of the Microsoft Business Solutions products. It also seems that Microsoft will continue to bring their business applications closer together ('Bringing two worlds together'), which points out, among other things, that integration into Power BI and Office 365 in the NAV 2018 is getting even better and closer.
Improvements to the core application
In NAV 2018 it will be even more beneficial to also use Office 365. Improvements in the Office integration will, among other things, mean that you will receive reminders from Outlook and interactions from contact cards from Outlook. The Optical Characters Recognition (OCR) service in NAV 2018 is also enhanced with vendor synchronization.
New opportunities -integration of artificial intelligence
Cognitive Services is Microsoft's service there through advanced algorithms allows the users to integrate artificial intelligence into the applications. Integration of Cognitive Services is one of the more remarkable initiatives in the new version of Navision which, among other things, means that the solution will include automatic facial recognition and analysis functionality that can be used in HR context and automatic product recognition which can place an item in the right context.
