There is a lot of confusion around the naming of Microsoft Dynamics 365 products so I wanted to create a post for reference.
Each Dynamics solution meets a different business need and utilizes a completely separate programming language and integration model so in most cases developers will not go across multiple Dynamics offerings.
|On-Premise Solution Name||Cloud Solution Name||Other Names||Sub-Products||Programming Language|
|Dynamics CRM||Dynamics 365||D365 Customer Engagement (D365CE)||D365 Sales, D365 Customer Service, D365 Marketing, D365 Field Service, D365 Project Service Automation||.NET|
|Dynamics AX||Dynamics 365 for Finance & Operations||D365FO, D365 FinOps||D365 Finance, D356 Supply Chain Management, D365 Commerce, D365 Human Resources||X++/.NET|
|Dynamics NAV||Dynamics 365 Business Central||D365BC||-||AL|
|Dynamics GP||Dynamics 365 Business Central||D365BC||-||AL|
