Microsoft Dynamics NAV in Statistics

Microsoft Dynamics Convergence 2014 brings us some new statistical numbers. As I’m NAV fan, the most important facts are:

  • NAV has the most of the Dynamics customers – 102.000
  • NAV has the most of Dynamics customer adds – 8.000

That means, people trust and like NAV globally. With Windows Azure and NAV as repeatable solution in the future, these numbers will grow. With this possibilities, we will get new customers, while NAV as easy for customize solution will provide standard growth.

Last year, percentage of Dynamics solutions participation was as following:

Now, with new customer adds, percentage of Dynamics solutions participation is as following:

You can see, only NAV has percentage growth in total Dynamics customers. When you look at total customers adds, you can find next:

  • NAV       8.000     (8,5%)
  • GP         4.000     (9,3%)
  • AX          1.000     (5,6%)
  • SL                 0     (0,0%)
  • CRM      1.000     (2,6%)

Customer Success with Microsoft Dynamics Sure Step

First of all, I want to thanks to the people in Pack Publishing for this book review opportunity (especially to Sagar and Jay). I’m project manager with great ERP experience and I like this topic.

After many years spent in project management and many this topic books read, I was expecting another similar book. But, I was pleasantly surprised. Book is not only standard Sure Step manual. The author has pretty good researched the topics and give us some answers related to question why we need project management.

He is not limited only to the tight topic. He flirts successfully with other project methodologies when he feel this is necessary. Author is successfully introduce us in some new project management area as trusting is. He used parts from Covey’s book “Speed of Trust” and excellent combine them with Sure Step. I like to talk about this area as Trust Management and I think this is the new knowledge area in project management and we don’t think about that often enough.

All parts in book are described with facts, but author used practice examples, as well.

Book pretty good explain what is methodology and how we can choose the right tool for each specific case. Book introduce use in all available Sure Step tools, but also introduce us in tools by 3th party. Also, book teach us how to prepare own tool for specific needs. Very successfully, book explains to us that project management is not something you can learn by heart and this is serious discipline.

This book will be useful for absolute beginners, but also to people with years of experience in ERP or CRM implementation. Author summarized the main items that can make the project successful.
