Dynamics 365 Business Central: Time to upgrade to the latest version


In the ever-evolving realm of technology, staying ahead of the curve is essential for businesses to thrive. Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central (D365BC), a cloud-based enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution, empowers businesses to manage their operations efficiently. However, as with any software, D365BC support is subject to change. Microsoft has recently announced a shift in its D365BC support policy, which necessitates action from businesses currently using older versions.

Why upgrading is essential for your business

Effective October 10, 2023, Microsoft will only provide mainstream support for the three most recent versions of D365BC. This means that if your organization is still operating on D365BC v14 or earlier, you will need to upgrade to a newer version to maintain access to critical support services.

Upgrading to the latest version of D365BC offers several compelling advantages:

Enhanced security: Newer versions incorporate the latest security features and patches, safeguarding your data from evolving cyber threats.

Improved functionality: Microsoft continuously introduces new features and enhancements, providing access to cutting-edge innovations that streamline business processes and boost productivity.

Simplified maintenance: Upgrading reduces the risk of compatibility issues, ensuring a smoother and more efficient user experience.

Reduced IT burden: Cloud solutions eliminate the need for on-premises hardware and software maintenance, freeing up IT resources for strategic initiatives.

Scalability: Cloud-based ERP systems seamlessly scale to meet growing business needs, providing the resources required, whenever needed.

Cost-effectiveness: Cloud solutions often prove to be more cost-effective over time, eliminating upfront hardware and software costs and reducing ongoing maintenance expenses.


The decision to upgrade or move to the cloud is crucial for businesses using older versions of D365BC. By upgrading or transitioning to the cloud, organizations can reap the benefits of enhanced security, improved functionality, and simplified maintenance, ensuring they remain agile, competitive, and well-positioned for future success. The deadline for upgrading to a supported version of D365BC was October 10, 2023. Businesses are advised to act promptly to schedule their upgrade or cloud migration and ensure they continue to benefit from the latest advancements in D365BC.
