Get to Know the Features of Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R2

What’s the scoop on the Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R2 release? To give you more insight on what to expect, the Microsoft Dynamics AX product team blog, Inside Microsoft Dynamics AX, has started publishing a Preview Blog Series. The series is planned to be around 14 posts that offer the Dynamics AX community insight into the key new technical and functional capabilities that will be available with Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R2.

The 2nd post in this series discusses considerations when evaluating a single instance deployment given that one of the key objectives for Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R2 is to further improve support of a single global instance ERP implementation when it is the preferred implementation option. The post reveals just how Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 will support single instance deployments:

  • Additional support of localizations managed in a single instance
    Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 (released in August 2011) already delivers regulatory support and localizations for 25 countries. With the release of Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R2 an additional 11 countries will be supported – enabling deployment for these new countries as well as all existing countries in one single instance. The countries for which localization and translation are planned include: Brazil, Czech Republic, China, Estonia, Hungary, India, Japan, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, and Russia.
  • Minimization of user exposure to unnecessary complexity
    While all users have access to the same instance, country specific functionality is enabled based on the location of the legal entity. A user’s access to company specific capabilities can be restricted through security setup to help simplify the implementation and user experience.
  • Data management and security
    In Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 data can be easily shared to avoid redundancy, and data security can be increased by using security policies and effective dates. In the upcoming release we added functionality to support scenarios when data sharing is not permitted or beneficial. Data partitions can be created to isolate and restrict access to data sets. This is a must have capability in a scenario where business units are autonomous and sharing data would add additional complexity or is even prohibited.
