Microsoft reveals new Dynamics AX 2012, 2009 upgrade and migration options for 365 Operations (AX7)
As of November, Microsoft Dynamics AX nomenclature will change, but the popular ERP will live on under its new name, Dynamics 365 for Operations. Also known as AX7, the latest release will offer both a full cloud and a hybrid deployment model for select scenarios.
Arif Kureshy, director of program management for AX platform, explained to AXUG Summit 2016 attendees that the AX application architecture as it existed in version 2012 is now being managed in distinct components: AX app suite, app foundation, and app platform.
"Focusing on the app platform, we are [sealing those components of the architecture] that we can't overlay anymore because we want to iterate on the platform really fast. We are working on a two-week cadence by splitting up the AX app. By sealing some of them, we can innovate faster and you can use them [in your process]," he said.
