AX 2009 Update: At Convergence Sessions, Dynamics Team Pushes Improved User Experience, Upgrade Path
Dynamics AX 2009 is being pushed as a release with a lot of everything-more features, better performance, better usability, and better alignment to Microsoft's "Software + Service" model.
"It is groundbreaking," said Thomas Mullertz, director of AX/NAV Product Marketing, at Convergence 2008.
There are several concrete examples of improved features and usabilty - new Role Centers for role-tailored views of the software, new language support, and new features. Other aspects, though, like deep integration to CRM Live, or "cloud" services, are still not fully realized and may be more evident in other Dynamics products before AX adopts them, AX officials indicated in presentations and interviews at Convergence 2008.
