Lotus F1 Team Goes Live with Phase 1 of Microsoft Dynamics AX Solution

by Jason Gumpert

Other than seeing the Microsoft Dynamics logo over the shoulder of Kimi Räikkönen this season, especially on last week's winning F1 race car in Abu Dhabi, you may have wondered if there was any substance to the Microsoft Dynamics partnership with the Lotus F1 team

As it turns out, the Lotus F1 team reports it has just gone live with Phase 1 of its Dynamics AX implementation, codenamed "MiLo".  "Phase 1 of the ambitious project officially went live on Monday [November 5, 2012]; giving team members in the Finance / HR / Purchasing / Stores departments access to this new and valuable tool," according to the Lotus F1 Team site.

MBS division president Kirill Tatarinov was on hand at the team's home base of Enstone to celebrate the go live.  He told Lotus F1 that this deployment was the beginning of a longer term plan. "I think what stands out most is the way our two organisations have worked together to implement such a significant business transformation within a very tight time scale," he said in an interview. "Looking at what has been achieved already, the project seems to have been a highly successful venture thus far and there is still plenty to come. This is due in no small part to a lot of hard work and dedication from both sides, and the manner in which our people have set about this task together is testament to the advantages such a technical partnership can bring."
