Hi All,


Has anyone either now or in a former role ever worked as a Systems Accountant\BA\Analyst on the the following FMIS systems?


- Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations (formerly MS Dynamics AX)


- Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central (formerly MS Dynamics NAV)




If you have, from an Administrators point of view, how easy have they been to maintain\support?


In a former life (nearly 20 years ago), I was an end user of Great Plains Dynamics, but don't remember much about it.

Moved to IT Pros - why would the OP think this belonged to Off Topic?

Apologies, didn't see the IT Pros.

Thanks for correcting.

It's a specialised product, hence why Nav contractors make bank. 


I've managed to get a simple setup to work by building out their demo setup, then replacing the DB with my own. But in reality it's something you'll need a specialist for to get up and running properly. 


It's all SQL behind the scenes, the front end is pretty light weight from what I can tell. 


From a support perspective of installing the app on endpoints, new user setup, backups etc it's all pretty straight forward. The initial deployment and development of what you actually want the product to do is not a DIY task, though.
