Microsoft Corporation  (NASDAQ:MSFT)  reported the launch of its latest version of Microsoft Dynamics NAV, with the latest functionality improvements limited to Dynamics NAV 2017. The latest enhancements are available to try for free via the Dynamics NAV 2017 showpiece environment at goERPcloud.

Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2017 provides new features to enhance core NAV functionality, new features to enhance cloud based deployment, and increased seamless integration to Office 365, Power BI and CRM for added intelligence.

The highlights

Microsoft recently introduced Dynamics 365 as a fully cloud-based business management base product sporting “Dynamics 365 for Financials”. While it provides some of NAV’s functionality, an entire type of Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2017 can be introduced in the cloud via RoseASP. A couple of weeks ago, the company’s CEO Steve Ballmer raised the spirit of the phrase to reply a question about why and how Microsoft ended up missing the smartphone prospect that was entirely within its scope in the mid-2000s.

The CEO added that they would have ventured into the hardware segment faster and acknowledged that what they had in the PC wasn’t largely going to replicate itself in the mobile industry. At the same time, Ballmer recommended that he long supported for company to move into the handset operations and that his view on that aspect strained his association with Microsoft Founder Bill Gates.

It should be noted that it was Ballmer who encouraged Microsoft to acquire Nokia in a deal worth $7.6 billion over the reservations of the firm’s board and incoming Chief Executive Satya Nadella. The deal was reported weeks after Ballmer updated on his plans of stepping down. Few years later, Microsoft closed what analysts stated as a colossal mistake and wrote off around all of what Microsoft paid for the asset.

In the same interview, the CEO also clarified on his initial doubt of Apple Inc.(NASDAQ:AAPL) as his incapability to advance the “business model” revolutions that he appealed drove its fame – the carrier grants that prompted the iPhone device cheaper for customers to buy.
