An Advance Peek at Dynamics AX 5.0—and the Emergence of Role Tailored User Experiences (UX)
Dynamics AX 5.0 isn't due out until this summer, so there is a lot we don't know about it. But one thing we do know is that the UI will be getting a lot of changes.
What is key is that the UI changes won't be purely cosmetic in nature. No, the goal here will be to seek a more productive experience for the different user roles that will make demands of Dynamics AX.
The new User Experience (UX) will be known as "Role-Tailored" user interfaces, which are very much aligned with the Windows Vista and Microsoft Office System 2007 look-and-feel.
This new user interface design will revolve around an SDI, or Single Document Interface. This translates into a new page loading into the same space in which the old one was loaded, instead of opening into a new window.
