What is Business Central?

Business Central is a business management application for small and mid-sized organizations that automates and streamlines business processes. Highly adaptable and rich with features, Business Central enables companies to manage their finances, supply chain, manufacturing, shipping, project management, services, and more. Companies can easily add functionality that's relevant to their region of operation, and customize the app to support highly-specialized industries.

What's New in Business Central 2023 Release Wave 2?

This release takes Microsoft's investment in Copilot to the next level. Microsoft is providing more capabilities for people to optimize their processes and complete tasks faster with the guidance of Copilot. Developers are already enjoying Copilot in Visual Studio Code and the AL experience, and there's more to come in that area.

Microsoft has also improved the ability to consolidate financial data and engage in intercompany partnerships for multiple companies in multiple Business Central environments.

Additional updates in 2023 release wave 2 include:

  • Adapt faster with Microsoft Power Platform

    It's easier to set up workflows in Business Central. Microsoft is delivering templates that support more scenarios out of the box, so that you can automate more processes to be more productive. Additionally, you can consume business events with the Business Central Power Automate connector.

  • Application

    The intercompany and consolidation features now work across environments, which allows broader use of the multicompany capabilities. The supply chain capabilities in Business Central are improved with several optimizations and enhancements that let you run your inventory and warehouse processes more efficiently. For example, this new release improved the picking process, fulfillment suggestions, SKU management, and added granular warehouse configuration for manufacturing and jobs.

  • Country and regional

    Business Central is now available in more than 130 countries and regions.

  • Development

    Business Central has moved entirely to Visual Studio Code, where Microsoft continues to invest in areas that enhance productivity for developers. Business Central is modernizing processes for testing dependent extensions by making sure that AL GO can handle these tests for customers, VARs, and ISVs who manage dependencies. All required tests run on the latest released versions of ISV apps without manual intervention.

  • Governance and administration

    Business Central delivers a set of additional self-service features to help administrators manage more granular administrative rights.

  • Legislation

    This release offers new audit formats for digital reporting, such as SAF-T in Denmark and FAC for France, and better support for e-invoicing and local legislation.

  • Onboarding

    Tooltips on fields provide better Learn More links to content that explains values that are too complex to cover in a short text.

  • Productive with Microsoft 365

    Business Central is improving the efficiency of collaborative business processes in Microsoft Teams by investing in the capability to unfurl a card without installing the Business Central Teams app.

  • Reporting and data analysis

    Microsoft is adding more capabilities to Analysis mode, enriching reports, and an overview that lets you explore all reports in Business Central.

  • Service and platform

    Business Central is continuing to invest in the fundamentals of service, focusing on performance, stability, resource governance, security, and compliance.
