Razzle and Dazzle Aside, Some Convergence Attendees Express Anxiety About Upgrading to AX 2009

March 12 2008

Microsoft is providing Convergence attendees what it said is "a sneak peek into powerful new capabilities of Microsoft Dynamics AX 2009 (code-named "AX ‘5.0')," scheduled for release in the first half of 2008.

But customers attending Convergence who have been testing AX 2009 or attended demos divided over the issue of how difficult upgrading might be in practice. One user who has been testing AX 2009 for Microsoft said that he found it easier upgrading from AX 3.0 to AX 2009 than he had found it going from AX 2.5 to AX 3.0. "Much smoother," he said.
