All change for Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Operations – New names and apps

Dynamics 365 for Operations (formerly called Dynamics AX, formerly called Axapta) has another new name: Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations, or possibly the Unified Operations Plan, or possibly Operations Applications…

So, we are not sure what it’s called, but the good news is that the new packaging will include significantly more functionality and value at the same price.

The Dynamics 365 for Operations SKU will be replaced (as of July 1, 2017) by the Unified Operations Plan SKU. The Unified Operations Plan includes:

  • Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations
  • Dynamics 365 for Retail
  • Dynamics 365 for Talent
  • PowerApps

The Unified Operations Plan retains the 20-seat minimum of Operations. The applications for Talent and Retail can be licenced on their own, but the Finance and Operations app will only be available as part of the Unified Operations Plan.

All existing customers with Operations SKUs will automatically transition to Unified Operations Plan SKUs.

Microsoft has also changed the names of its Dynamics 365 Enterprise Edition Plans. Plan 1 (Sales, Field Service, Customer Service, PSA, and PowerApps) will now be called “Customer Engagement Plan”. Plan 2 (Plan 1 + Operations) will be called “Dynamics 365 Plan”.
