ArcherPoint Dynamics NAV / Business Central Developer Digest - Vol 300

ArcherPoint Dynamics NAV and BC Developer Digest Blog

The Dynamics NAV and Business Central community, including the ArcherPoint technical staff, is made up of developers, project managers, and consultants who are constantly communicating, with the common goal of  sharing helpful information with one another to help customers be more successful.

As they run into issues and questions, find the answers, and make new discoveries, they post them on blogs, forums, social everyone can benefit. We in Marketing watch these interactions and never cease to be amazed by the creativity, dedication, and brainpower we’re so fortunate to have in this community—so we thought, wouldn’t it be great to share this great information with everyone who might not have the time to check out the multitude of resources out there? So, the ArcherPoint Microsoft Dynamics NAV Developer Digest was born. Each week, we present a collection of thoughts and findings from NAV/BC experts and devotees around the world. We hope these insights will benefit you, too.

Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central Wave 1, Cumulative Update 16.2 Released

Saurav Dhyani shares in his blog post, MSDYN365BC – 2020 Wave 1 CU 16.2, the feature changes as well as application and platform hotfixes found in this most recent cumulative update. 

Do You Upgrade or Deploy Cumulative Updates?

Kyle is curious: “Let's say you have a working on-premises Business Central v15 implementation. Do you keep that customer on BC15 but apply cumulative updates periodically? Or do you upgrade that customer every 6 months when BC16, BC17, etc. come out? Follow-on question: Do you suggest they move to BC SaaS sometime soon so that this isn’t a problem?”

Matt T offers: “I think you upgrade them every 6 months, but that is just my opinion. As far as SaaS goes, I believe everyone should be able to speak to the benefits of it and steer the customer towards a conversation with their account manager if they are interested.”

Tim M agrees: “There are many variables that need to be discussed and considered, and each client will have their own unique ones. Matt is correct; bring in the account manager as soon as the topic comes up.”
