- Are all these business apps built on the Azure platform?
We are focused on bringing the vision and value of Dynamics 365 to our customers.
While Microsoft Azure is the focal point from which we’ll drive innovation in Dynamics 365 and we’ll continue to adopt Azure capabilities as they are available. We will continue to leverage Office 365 and existing Apps outside of Azure to deliver on the vision.
- Will Dynamics 365 be available on-premises?
No. Dynamics 365 is a cloud service so it will not be available, as is, on premise or in private clouds.
We will continue to innovate in, and support, our great Dynamics CRM, Dynamics AX, NAV, GP and SL solutions. We will also offer customers connectors if they want to use a hybrid of on-premises and cloud solutions and a migration path when they are ready to move to the cloud.
- When and where will Dynamics 365 be available?
The Enterprise edition of Dynamics 365 will be available worldwide in the fall of this year. The Business edition will be made available in the same timeframe in the US and Canada with a phased roll out to additional geographies. We will share specific availability and pricing details closer to the release of these apps.
- How much will Dynamics 365 cost?
The business application industry has traditionally presented customers with a range of siloed applications. When Dynamics 365 launches November 1st we want to give customers a new choice. While we’ll support the traditional approach and allow customers to license Dynamics 365 by application (Financials, Operations, Sales, Marketing, etc.) they will also be able to license users by “role.” Our new role based approach will give customers the flexibility they need to support modern, more agile, more diverse employee roles – enabling them to access functionality across all applications within Dynamics 365. We’ll share additional details on pricing closer to availability.
- What happens to the Dynamics AX, GP, NAV, SL and CRM brand/ products?
This is the evolution of our business apps. New versions of Dynamics AX and Dynamics CRM will come together later this year to create the Enterprise edition of Dynamics 365. The Business edition is based on Project Madeira which is in public preview in North America. In the months following general availability of Dynamics 365, we plan to rapidly expand the number of countries where Dynamics 365 for Financials is available. Dynamics NAV, GP, SL continue to be enhanced, supported and licensed to new customers.
