Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 is generally available to customers worldwide as of the start of August 2011.The software giant managed to live up to the promise it made at Convergence 2011, when the company indicated that Dynamics AX 2012 RTM’s commercial release would happen in August.
Localized in no less than 23 languages, the latest iteration of Dynamics AX has been released in a total of 25 countries.
According to Guy Weismantel, Director of ERP Marketing for Microsoft, this is just the first phase of Dynamics AX 2012’s availability, with the company planning to roll out the latest version of its enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution in additional markets in the next months.
“Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 is “Powerfully Simple” because it has been designed to empower people to anticipate and embrace change, enabling businesses of all sizes to thrive and grow,” Weismantel said.
“Through our early adoption programs we already have evidence from customers and partners on the incredible value they are realizing from this latest version.”
But even though Microsoft’s newest ERP offering is now available to customers worldwide, the Redmond company has yet to officially launch it.
In fact, the Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 Virtual Launch Event is set about a month from now, on September 8, 2011.
Customers can still register and attend the virtual event which will feature Steve Ballmer, CEO of Microsoft, and Kirill Tatarinov, President of Microsoft Business Solutions.
Weismantel stressed that “Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 delivers:
- A powerful foundation of prebuilt industry capabilities and comprehensive, core ERP functionality for financial, human resources and operations management. It supports more than 40 roles within an organization from the shop floor to the top floor in both commercial businesses and public sector organizations.
- A new level of agility through a set of tools like our Unified Natural Models, which serve as a library of business processes that reflect real-world situations.
- Simplicity across the board, allowing amazing flexibility in configuration and customization while lowering total cost of ownership to our customers. Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 is focused on making every process for both IT administrators and end users simpler, easier and more intuitive.”
