Microsoft Dynamics AX provides a powerful and comprehensive business solution for international and medium-sized companies. The Dynamics AX ERP solution offers the following business applications: warehouse management, financial management, retail and eCommerce, inventory management, service management, human resource management, manufacturing, and sales.
“Dynamics AX is now Microsoft Dynamics 365 Finance and Operations.” Microsoft has rebranded Dynamics and combined all ERP and customer relationship management products into one product: Dynamics365. This product provides an entry point to much cloud-based business management and application solutions on Microsoft’s Azure platform. Microsoft Dynamics AX is now called Dynamics 365 Finance & Operations, Dynamics CRM is now called Dynamics 365 Sales, and Dynamics NAV is now Dynamics 365 Business Central.
Why should we change the solution?
Companies must prepare for the future as digital transformation, and intelligent systems bring new productivity levels to markets and economies. Dynamics 365 Finance & Operations is a powerful tool that helps companies prepare for the future. It features intuitive, easy-to-use, state-of-the-art functionality. In addition, Dynamics 365 FO contains many Dynamics AX features that allow seamless collaboration and higher operational efficiencies.
Dynamics 365 Finance & Operations vs. AX – What’s the difference?
Dynamics 365 Finance & Operations is available from any device with an internet connection. It does not require the management of physical infrastructure like server rooms. Dynamics 365 FO allows seamless access to ERP and CRM solutions, resulting in better efficiencies and faster implementations. Dynamics 365 now includes Power BI and Office 365.
Dynamics 365 applications can be accessed from any browser. Users don’t need to download anything. Instead, access the application from any device with an Internet connection.
This new design enhances user experience and encourages collaboration among other users. You can personalize the user interface. In addition, you can personalize the interface, which allows each user to have their default home page. This is not possible with AX.
- REPORTING AND ADJUSTMENT
Dynamics 365 can be extended easily by adding-ons and third-party tools. However, AX would require specific development to allow for similar extensions. Dynamics 365 provides extensive reporting capabilities, including real-time multi-dimensional analysis and in-memory calculations.
- REGULAR UPDATES
Real-time updates are possible with cloud-based instances of Dynamics 365. This allows users to stay up-to-date with software developments. It also eliminates the tedious installation of new product versions that were required in AX. In addition, this makes correcting errors and problems much easier and more efficient than Dynamics AX.
