The AX expense management Windows 8 app

Microsoft Dynamics AX deals are now on a "hockey stick trajectory", the company says, with a strong end to the 2013 fiscal year last month and a pipeline that signals continued strong sales.  

The AX team plans to capitalize on that strength with a roadmap that includes an "R3" update to Dynamics AX 2012 in the fourth quarter of calendar year 2013. And the next major release of Dynamics AX is codenamed "Rainier" and will deliver a cloud-ready overhaul in Q4 of calendar year 2014. The company will also begin a more regular schedule of cumulative updates (CUs) delivered quarterly.
