We recently did an upgrade from NAV 2009 to Business Central Wave 2 (#MSDyn365BC).
I was super excited during migration and it was interesting to do that migration to the future latest and greatest version of the product.
In this article, we will discuss Upgrading a database to Business Central Wave 2 from Business Central Spring 2019 Release (14.x).
This all is for a Business Central Spring Database that does not include any C/AL Code Customization. The database can only include Third Party and Custom Extensions.
My session at NAV Tech Days this year was together with Nikola Kukrika and we did an end 2 end walk-through of how to upgrade a code customized C/AL solution in 14.x to 15.x (AL), converting the code, upgrading the data, explaining all the pitfalls and in some cases, how to cope with missing functionality.
If you just started working with Dynamics 365 Business Central events, you should read this short article from Microsoft first. If you are already familiar with what the events are, let‘s dig further into that. Everyone knows that 365 Business Central Upgrade to events might be real trouble sometimes. In this blog post, I will explain how to manually upgrade Dynamics 365 Business Central Code to events.
Microsoft Dynamics NAV is the past, and Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central should be the future. According to the newest information, which appears and is updated each day, it is hard to follow up all the news. We have published earlier last week, just after the official announcement from Microsoft at Directions North America 2018, that the sales of the new NAV 2018 licences for the new customers will stop at January 1st, 2019. But last week Microsoft updated this information and extended the period of the new NAV 2018 license sales. It is April 1st, 2019 when Dynamics NAV 2018, sold via the DPL, will no longer be available for new customers.
In the journey of upgrading between the Dynamics NAV old platform and the new ones, we have had 3 blogs written before:

We want to highlight some more points related to upgrading and will share some useful tips.
he task After the Dynamics NAV 2018 CU2 release, I found it safe to upgrade my own Dynamics NAV 2016 solution up to Dynamics NAV 2018. But not only that, ALL changed objects should be transferred to extensions. My system is a small solution and it started in NAV 4.0. On every upgrade process, I have tried to kill all the changes in the system and to start all over, in order to utilize as much of the new standard functionality as possible.
