Next Release of Microsoft Dynamics AX Defined by New Interface, Cloud, Lifecycle Services
Set to be released at the end of the year, the newest version of Microsoft Dynamics AX, codenamed AX 7, will be released first exclusively on the Microsoft Azure platform. An on-premise version will be available six months later release. That's according to Dan Brown, Microsoft's AX R&D general manager, who keynoted general sessions on Monday and Tuesday at AXUG Focus 2015 in Orlando, revving up talk about the soon-to-be-released AX 7, and personally meeting with users to discuss their issues or concerns with AX.
Three primary updates characterize AX 7: a new user experience, the extended use of Microsoft Dynamics Lifecycle Services (LCS), and the prevalence of the Microsoft Cloud, or Azure.
