They look similar – even under the hood. But don’t mistake Project Madeira for Dynamics NAV 2016, two NAV veterans say.

Joining us to distinguish Dynamics NAV from Project Madeira – and to make sense of the upgrade strategies and Extensions – are author, consultant, educator, and NAV MVP Mark Brummel, and Andrew Good, CEO of Dynamics NAV partner firm Liberty Grove Software.

Among the provocative topics we cover with them:

  • If Project Madeira is a Dynamics NAV “cousin,” how does it resemble Dynamics GP instead?
  • What is the partner opportunity with Project Madeira? Think upgrades, volume sales, simple implementations.
  • The open source difference. Don’t expect the same customizability with Project Madeira that you’ve enjoyed with Dynamics NAV.
  • NAV and Madeira Extensions. Why are they a plus, but how do they restrict partners from delivering tailored solutions?
