What can Extensions do for you and your clients? It’s a long, long list. So, let’s begin at the beginning by looking at what Extensions are. As implied by the name, Extensions allow you quickly and easily tailor, extend, and build applications to fit your Dynamics clients’ specific needs — with little to no code.
The Benefits of Using Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central as a Platform for App Builders
Once again, it’s a long, long list. Here are a few of the benefits:

Use Microsoft Go-to-Market (GTM) Services
Enhance the business value and increase deal size with existing and new customers
Achieve greater scale
Bundle with Power Apps, Power Automate, Power BI, Azure AI, and many others
What Can You Build?
Here are just 2 examples:
Develop a Vertical Solution – You can create an app for a specific industry using the new, modern development tools and Extensions version 2.0.
Development of a Horizontal Solution – You can create an add-on app that integrates with Business Central and build an interface based on how your clients want their data to flow between Business Central and your services.
Expedite Your Clients Transition from Microsoft Dynamics NAV to Business Central
Importing business data from NAV to Business Central is a breeze. You can use Extensions 2.0 or Excel. Business Central includes templates for accounts, customers, vendors, and inventory items that you can choose to apply when you import your clients’ data. You can import master data and some transactional data from NAV based on the default configuration package in Business Central. You can work with the package to import and validate the data before you apply the package.
The default configuration package supports 26 tables. Here is a small sampling:
Gen. Journal Line
Item Journal Line
Customer Posting Group
Vendor Posting Group
Inventory Posting Group
