The Future is Here – AX 2012 Meets Its User Community

Our man on the ground at Microsoft’s Dynamics AX Technical Conference reports that it’s been standing room only with over 1200 AX professionals attending. So what’s got the community buzzing so far? As we anticipated, from here on out the AX product will be known as “Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012” (previously referred to as Dynamics AX 6) with a tentative general release date in Q3 2011.

OK, so what’s in the name? AX 2012 appears to be an ERP solution for everyone in the organization while introducing stronger integration and support for several Microsoft products such as:

- Visual Studio: Increased use of .NET for developing customizations and the inter-op between .NET and X++;
- MS Office: With add-ins in Excel and Word allowing editing of data from within the spreadsheet;
- SharePoint: For setting up internal portals for access by all employees; and
- SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS): Having reports deployed through SSRS.

What’s next on the educational roadmap as the conference continues? Looking forward to learning more about the expansion of the global address book party model over to customers and vendors, the enhancements to the Services and the Application Integration Framework (AIF) and seeing the new graphical workflow editor and flow controls to configure organizational processes.

What do you think about the conference? If you’ve found it a valuable forum to learn the technical direction that AX is heading, spread the word on the street and hopefully there’ll be enough buzz to encourage Microsoft to host this event annually.
