Microsoft Officials at AXUG Summit 2008 Say They Expect AX “6” to Be Heavily Influenced By User Group

Now that Microsoft Dynamics AX 2009, sometimes referred to as AX 5, has been fully launched, and Microsoft has reached the 10,000 customer milestone for AX products, company officials have begun looking ahead to AX  "6".

"This group is an amazing source of input for us," Hal Howard, General Manager of ERP R&D, told the assembled membership gathered in Las Vegas for AXUG Summit 2008.

He credited AXUG input with helping establish the AX "6" goals of providing "world class financial management" and "business process excellence" to meet the demands of globalization, consolidation of organizations across countries, and changing tax reporting for various legal entities as well as across multiple business units.
