Microsoft Allows Integration of Dynamics AX with SAP Via New Connector
If you can't lick 'em, join 'em.
That seems to be Microsoft's latest approach to an expanding segment of the enterprise resource planning (ERP) market that is demanding a two-tier ERP applications strategy instead of the traditional monolithic approach.
As discussed by Hal Howard and Kees Hertogh at Convergence, Microsoft has announced a new connector that accelerates two-tier ERP deployments between Microsoft Dynamics AX and SAP Business Suite. This new connector enables IT organizations to use Microsoft Dynamics AX across subsidiaries, divisions or branch entities to facilitate cost-effective business process integration and easily connect with SAP installations at the corporate headquarters location.
