Retail update for Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Operations (AX7) introduces both cloud and on-prem capabilities

On November 1, Microsoft will transition Dynamics AX, including its retail components, to Dynamics 365 for Operations branding. 365 Operations will begin releasing new industry specific capabilities in waves, beginning with retail store in November, and shop floor and warehouse in Spring 2017, according to Pepijn Richter, Director of Product Marketing at Microsoft.

This new release can be run completely on the cloud or as a hybrid solution in certain industry-specific scenarios. Retailers want flexibility when it comes to deployment options, including picking and choosing to run on Azure or through their in-store system. POS can be deployed in one or two pilot stores and then later integrated to all stores within a period of time.
