Dynamics AX positioning

I have not used SAP but have been involved with Dynamics AX for many years.

Dynamics AX 2012 is a very configurable solution and now being developed for Enterprise level organisations, who typically have enterprise level requirements.

More configuration typically requires a larger budget, but I would imagine under an SAP level budget.

As SAP is more complex one would then logically think it cost more to implement and has more risk in its implementation.

If it helps, at a headline level, we have a page about the top 10 reasons to choose Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012. You can find it at;

www.renown.com.au/MicrosoftDynamics/Dynamics_AX/Why_Choose_Microsoft_Dyn...

You can also find a list and description of the available Dynamics AX 2012 modules as well.

Hope it’s of interest.
