NAV (BC) Integration Old vs. New

Ok this webcast had a clear focus on NAV BC SaaS. But nevertheless I think these two pictures have a clear message.

When moving from the old NAV world to the new one it is not a question of CAL vs. AL. In my opinion the biggest challenge is to break out from our traditional way of solving problems.

The first picture shows a very familiar scenario. I think most NAV developers including myself will be fine with this solution. But the point is we have a whole set of new tools available which we should get familiar with. And these tools can also be a great help even in On Prem. Power Automate, Logic Apps, Azure functions…

So this is my entry point in the new world. Gather as much information as possible about Azure to be afterwards in a position to make valid decisions. Not everything needs or should be done in NAV BC if we already have tools available which can do the task out of the box.

Man möchte eigentlich meinen, in der Sommerzeit hat man mehr Zeit zum Lesen interessanter Beiträge. Bei mir ist es genau umgekehrt, da ich mich in dieser Jahreszeit gerne und viel an der frischen Luft bewege. Trotzdem habe ich mal wieder einige interessante Beiträge zusammen getragen.
