Microsoft Dynamics ERP and CRM roadmaps power up to faster release cadence
Microsoft Dynamics R&D has reshaped itself to deliver software updates on a semi-annual cadence for ERP and as often as quarterly for CRM. Today, as Convergence 2014 kicked off Microsoft revealed that Dynamics AX 2012 R3 is planned for release on May 1, and with it a growing list of new specialized apps.
"The public cloud is changing everything we're doing in engineering," Mike Ehrenberg told partners at a pre-Convergence event on Monday. "In the good old days [the cadence] was 3 years. Now we're putting [software] out every 3 months, and with [AX] Lifecycle Services, it is monthly."
