Excellent job on covering the recent Dynamics AX supply chain portfolio upgrade. Microsoft should be congratulated for elevating supply chain management's stature in their AX solution, it was long overdue. You are essentially correct that it is a small step toward achieving Tier I SCM ranking. SAP and Oracle have a head start in this area, but the message is being sent that Microsoft is a serious player and that going forward, MS will support additional supply chain features and functionality.

It’s exciting to hear that Microsoft acquired the strong warehousing and transportation modules from its partner Blue Horseshoe. Adding these modules as standard features in the state-of-the-art Microsoft Dynamics AX business management system will be welcomed by many Australian businesses. As a fully integrated system, Microsoft Dynamics will provide these companies with “one version of the truth”. What makes this important is that it will provide improved performance, productivity and accuracy needed in our supply chain, logistics and transport industry locally at a price that is affordable and faster to deploy.
