Microsoft unveils next-generation ERP offering ‘Dynamics AX 6’

Pre-built capabilities for five industries and 38 countries

By CBR Staff Writer

Microsoft has unveiled a new generation of enterprise resource planning (ERP) offering, Dynamics AX ‘6’, that will enable independent software vendors to bring offerings to market faster, and lower product life-cycle investments and expand market opportunities.

The new Dynamics AX ‘6’ features a unique model-driven, layered architecture that accelerates software development, requiring less coding than building from scratch and easing maintenance and upgradability.

The company said the pre-built interoperability with its Application Platform, including SQL Server 2008 R2 and Visual Studio 2010, and other technologies such as MS Office 2010 and MS SharePoint 2010, allows developers to spend less time on technical integration and compatibility, and increases the breadth of developer resources available to ISVs.

Microsoft Dynamics ERP Research and Development corporate vice president Hal Howard said building on the proven strengths of Microsoft Dynamics AX 2009, Microsoft Dynamics AX ‘6’ bring rich functionality, advanced architecture and the full power of the Microsoft stack to the business application developer.

"As we introduce these powerful new innovations, we maintain our focus on simplicity by streamlining application deployment, maintenance and upgradability," Howard said.

The company said that a unified ERP offering with pre-built capabilities for five industries and 38 countries will allow ISVs to expand their offerings to new verticals and geographies.
