Microsoft Dynamics End of Life

Microsoft's Dynamics product line has multiple products going end of life soon as the product transitions to newer versions and new names for Microsoft Dynamics AX and Microsoft Dynamics NAV.

Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central End of Life

The first product having versions going end of life is Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central. Formerly known as Dynamics NAV and Navision, in 2018, the product was rebranded to Dynamics 365. This enterprise resource planning (ERP) system from Microsoft is designed to help small to medium businesses (SMB) with their finance, manufacturing, customer relationship management, supply chains, analytics, and electronic commerce operations. The product has both a SaaS version and an on-premise version, however, for this specific end of life, we'll be focussing on the on-premises version.

Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central Lifecycle

Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central on-premise uses a mix of Microsoft's modern and fixed lifecycle policies depending on the version. Effectively, this means the following for the various versions:

Microsoft Dynamics 365 Audit Report

Our experts created a Microsoft Dynamics 365 (on-premise) audit report that checks if the assets running Microsoft Dynamics 365 software in your network are on a supported version. It's color-coded to give you an easy and quick overview of which assets are running supported versions, and which ones need to be updated. Additionally, it also indicated how many days are remaining before a version is no longer supported.

Microsoft Dynamics AX End of Life

Microsoft Dynamics AX is another ERP tool but with a focus on mid-sized and large enterprises. Microsoft is ending support for all remaining Dynamics AX versions as the product is continuing its life as the rebranded Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations SaaS solution. Specifically, Dynamics AX 2009, Dynamics AX 2012, and Dynamics AX 2012 R2 will be going end of life on April 12, 2022.

Microsoft Dynamics AX Lifecycle

Microsoft Dynamics AX falls under Microsoft's fixed lifecycle policy which means that it provides:

  • A defined support and servicing Lifecycle timeline at the time of product launch.
  • A minimum of five years Mainstream Support.
  • An additional period of Extended Support for some products.

The remaining three Microsoft Dynamics versions Dynamics AX 2009, Dynamics AX 2012, and Dynamics AX 2012 R2 will all be going end of life on April 12, 2022.
