ArcherPoint Dynamics NAV Developer Digest – vol 28
The ArcherPoint technical staff—made up of developers, project managers, and consultants – is constantly communicating internally, with the goal of sharing helpful information with one another.
As they run into issues and questions, find the answers, and make new discoveries, they post them companywide on Yammer for everyone’s 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 group—so we thought, wouldn’t it be great to share them with the rest of the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Community? So, the ArcherPoint Microsoft Dynamics NAV Developer Digest was born. Each week, we present a collection of thoughts and findings from the ArcherPoint staff. We hope these insights will benefit you, too.

Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2015 allows users to create simple report layouts using Microsoft Word.

Software development has certainly changed over the last 15 years, but what about other aspects of software development? As developers, we live by requirements, and the business analyst is the go-to person for those requirements. This article shows how the role has changed over the years and the factors that have motivated that change.
