Microsoft Dynamics NAV (formerly Navision) and Microsoft Dynamics C5 (formerly Concorde C5). These products all provide applications for enterprise resource planning (ERP) and customer relationship management (CRM). Microsoft has been able to extend its reach with the Dynamics product line with over 300,000 businesses, along with over 10,000 reselling partners worldwide. The product line is also being utilized by a number of municipal governments. Other enterprise software vendors are also using the Microsoft architecture and platforms for easy compatibility.
The way software is delivered has changed over the years and Microsoft has been keen on staying competitive with its enterprise software which has been well received. It has enjoyed success with its traditional line of products such as Word, Power Point and Excel, and has been able to tweak its Dynamics products to be compatible with them as well. But now, for many small and midsized businesses, packaged software is being replaced with Web-based software as a service (SaaS). Hosted software has become tremendously successful over the past few years and a popular way of accessing software for many smaller companies. Microsoft, as have other software vendors, have acknowledged this trend and offers an option for it with its line of Dynamics products.
This software company’s MS SQL Server, MS Exchange Server, MS BizTalk Server, as well as the Small Business Server, have also been put to use by other software companies. They have been adapted because of easy compatibility with the Microsoft architecture which many businesses are familiar with and makes for simpler integration with other enterprise products, as an Microsoft Dynamics review will indicate.
