  1. Hi Roberto,

    Great post, I would add in the battle card table the size of the database.

    Online documentation says that the limit is 80GB for the SaaS version

    Source: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dynamics365/business-central/dev-itpro/faq#how-does-microsoft-handle-database-sizes

    but at the NAV TechDays 2019 during a session from Microsoft Employees, they communicated 150GB.

    These limits will grow in the future but we have to consider when we offer a solution to a Customer.

  2. 1) Developing in CAL is cheaper than crating Extensions
    2) Extensions let developers hide the source code, which means support and further development will be difficult in this case.
    3) Automated or windows for ERP upgrades is not what the responsible IT Manage wants. He want to be in control and he wants to test and release in the pace he decides.
    4) Miltiple Extensions will not work across the extensions. They will not interact and can create poor processes

    BC 365 SaaS is not for professional organizations.

      I respect everyone’s opinions, in fact I publish all the comments (even if they might bother Microsoft).

      On point 3 (automatic updates) I absolutely don’t agree,
      it is possible to decide when to activate the updates and if NOT to activate them, today everyone is asking for updated systems and they no longer want to have the system administrator \ ERP manager in the company who is there to install the patches \ updates.
      See the post on the third mechanization.

      Business Central is for small \ medium enterprises, for large enterprises Microsoft proposes AX.
