Microsoft emphasized Dynamics AX Lifecycle Services in roadmap to AX 2012 R3, Rainier releases
The Microsoft Dynamics AX roadmap calls for an AX 2012 R3 release in Q1 of calendar year 2014 and the next major release, codenamed "Rainier", due around the fourth quarter of 2014. And along with feature and function updates, Microsoft is pushing ahead its rollout of its AX Lifecycle Services offering for customers, which offers tools for supporting a customer from pre-sales through implementation and operational support of a live system.

Speaking at AXUG Summit today, Dynamics AX R&D general manager Sri Srinivasan reviewed the product roadmap, which is mostly unchanged from earlier 2013 guidance that promised both the AX 2012 R3 release and Rainier releases.
