Microsoft Dynamics AX '7' will use SQL Azure for cloud deployments, release about a year away
Microsoft expects to release next major release of Microsoft Dynamics AX, code named AX ‘7', in approximately a year, according to AX general manager Dan Brown who spoke today at AXUG Summit in St. Louis.
"I don't want to get any more specific than that just to give myself some breathing room," he told the audience. "But that's when the browser-based client is going to be delivered."
The new browser based interface will replace the Windows client. It will not only expose standard AX client features, but it will also replace the AX Enterprise Portal, Brown said. Typical portal capabilities like employee self-service will be rolled into the new browser interface.
