Application Server Licensing


Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2017 licensing is designed to help businesses jumpstart their financial insights and distribution management and then easily extend into all functional areas. The two license models available for Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2017 provide customers with a simplified, yet flexible, purchase experience. With Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2017, you must license:

  • The solution functionality; and

  • Access to the solution functionality by your users.

Given the custom tailored nature of NAV licensing, the options and pricing will be explained in depth during the sales process of implementing Sparkrock's Manage - Finance.

Perpetual Licensing:

With Perpetual Licensing, you license the software with permanent usage rights. So, you can use the licensed version of the software for as long as you choose. Typically Perpetual Licensing will be used for Managed Services implementations.

Subscription Licensing:

With Subscription Licensing, you license non-perpetual rights to use the software, meaning you can use the software only during the term of the agreement secured by periodic payments. This model lowers your initial licensing costs and provides you with the flexibility to increase or decrease subscription license counts from one subscription term to the next. Subscription based licensing will be used for cloud hosted implementations.

Additional License Requirements:

In order to implement Microsoft Dynamics NAV Application Servers, a number of additional licenses are required.

Licenses for software and services that operate as part of the core functionality of the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Application Servers must be acquired before the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Application Servers can be setup.
