Yesterday some more news were released around the implementation of the Microsoft Dynamics NAV “7” that will run on Windows Azure platform! Here is a short excerpt from the Convergence blog post:

At Convergence 2011, we announced that we would deliver Microsoft Dynamics NAV on Azure with the next major release of the solution - Microsoft Dynamics NAV “7”. Last night we demonstrated Dynamics NAV running on Azure. The development project is in great shape. We expect to ship this release in September/October 2012.

We also announced a very significant addition to the scope of NAV 7. NAV 7 will ship with a web browser capability – users (whether they are running NAV on premise or in the cloud) will be able to access the product with nothing more than Internet Explorer 9 on their desktop. This web browser capability, together with the Microsoft SharePoint client we have announced previously, will provide our SMB (small and mid-sized businesses) customers with lots of flexibility about how they choose to deploy the product and provide their employees with an interface that makes sense and adds value in the context of their job roles.”

Definitely a step into the right direction, exciting times ahead!
