Microsoft Announces August 2016 Platform Update to New Dynamics AX, Available from LCS

Microsoft has made Dynamics AX Platform version 7.2 available this week. It adds the use of Azure Resource Manager for managing deployments, as well as improvements to the user interface, Office integration, analytics, security, and integrations.

If you aren't familiar with the concept of platform updates for the new AX (aka, AX 7), they are distinct from "application" updates like the one offered in May 2016 in terms of the types of improvements (e.g., no new financial reporting in a platform update). And platform updates can be applied without updating the whole application.
