Microsoft Clarifies Present Document Management Options for Dynamics AX 2012 and Office 365
Convergence 2012 has no sessions dedicated to Office 365 with Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012, but senior program manager for Dynamics AX Chris Garty has shared his latest views on how the products can be used together now. More plans are in the works, he promises, but for now Microsoft sees three specific scenarios that the product supports to some extent: document generation, document management and export to Excel.
Document generation and document management capabilities involving Office 365 and Dynamics AX currently revolve around cloud access to documents either generated by AX or shared in AX via the URL DocuType. These documents would be uploaded to SkyDrive, SharePoint Online, or SharePoint 2010, and then the corresponding Office Web Apps can be used to view and edit them.
