The Year of the Cloud: How Coming Microsoft Products Will Make Dynamics AX the Basis of New Solutions

People have been talking about The Cloud for years, and now it’s arrived. 2010 for sure will be the year of the Cloud. And though it's not on any official calendar, those born under the year of the cloud are sure to be free thinkers, operational vs. capital based, have abilities to get projects going on their feet --- and into the cloud quickly.

Seriously, the next release,  or wave of Microsoft products, will enable more and more solutions to actually be true Hyrbid clouds. This means Dynamics AX customers will need to understand what is expected, as part of their solution design.  The next wave is just the very first part of what is on the horizon. Microsoft Dynamics AX is the business platform, which the rest of the platform makes use of to offer a total, single, hyrbid platform for users.

Cloudy, with no chance...

Dear George,

nothing can interest an ERP consultant less than that. Sitting in a dirty corner at a plant in Eastern Europe with no stable Internet connection and trying to find a way of bringing a barcode label under a wrapping foil onto a dusty pallet, I can only laugh. A cloud cannot help me with a bulky label printer either, such a shame.

Kind regards,
