It is a great pleasure to announce that we have now officially released Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 Marketing Beta to all partners on PartnerSource.

 

The Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 Marketing Beta release is a package containing a virtual PC (VPC) image of Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 (Marketing Beta) and a set of documents supporting the release. You can find everything here on PartnerSource.

 

We have now released our Feature Complete pre-release version of Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009. It includes all scoped functionality for Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009, with some exceptions. For further details, please refer to the Release Notes. The quality of the CTP4 build, which the Marketing Beta VPC is based on, is of such a sufficient quality that we now have our first Go-Live customers in the TAP program running Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 in a live environment! And more will follow in the coming months.

 

The primary purpose of the Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 Marketing Beta is to provide all partners with a preview of Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009. Partners should primarily use the Marketing Beta to continue internal readiness efforts and activities.

 

You are permitted to show the Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 Marketing Beta to strategic prospects or customers when this can drive marketing efforts such as demo'ing your  solutions running on Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009, help close a strategic deal or secure future business on Microsoft Dynamics NAV.

 

In addition to the Marketing Beta release we have also published the release dates for Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 Group 1 here on PartnerSource. 

 

Now it’s time to fire up the excitement around Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 and enter the final stages of readiness before the big launch at Convergence EMEA in Copenhagen in November.

Enjoy!
