Microsoft Dynamics AX or GP: Understanding the fundamental differences
According to recent Microsoft customer figures, Dynamics GP is leading the growth in the Microsoft Dynamics ERP space, adding new customers at the rate of 9.3%. Meanwhile, in the last year, AX has added new customers at the rate of 5.6%.
As somebody who has been working with Microsoft partners reselling both Dynamics GP, AX and NAV, these numbers are not very surprising. Each product has its target markets and areas of strengths. Microsoft has been pushing AX very strongly for large scale deployments, and GP for small to mid-sized organizations. The question about comparing GP against AX comes up so often that I have a few slide in my typical presentation that I run though as soon as somebody brings up the question.
