Microsoft Dynamics AX Technical Conference- Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 was revealed as the official name of the next version of the solution, previously code-named Microsoft Dynamics AX “6.

 icrosoft Dynamics AX 2012 is a major change in ERP technologyand  new way of thinking about ERP, about how companies deploy applications throughout their organization, how they manage their core business processes, and about how they rapidly deliver value to propel the organization forward.

Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012  meets the core developer needs of pervasive interoperability, unified modeling, and a model-driven, layered architecture, and will have a tremendous productivity impact on our customers’organizations.

Lachlan Cash, Senior Product Manager (demonstrated the model driven development in Microsoft Visual Studio and MorphX. He showed how changes in one environment immediately are available in the other – because they are both driven from the same SQL based repository. He continued by showing how the new concept of Models allows having business logic from multiple source in the same layer – or simply modularizing your code, as the tool sets natively support models directly in the IDEs.

Kyle Young, Principal Program Manager Lead. showed some of the many new application abstractions available in Dynamics AX 2012. Using the Enterprise Portal, where forms are driven from the same form definition as in the rich client, he showed the powerful application features built on top of Organizational Models, Workflow, Date Effectiveness, Categorization, Dimensions, Policies and Work On Behalf. 

Tom Patton, Senior Program Manager, showed the new User Experience in the Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 client, and how it seamlessly integrates with Microsoft Office Excel, allowing you to query data from AX, and join it with arbitrary other data sources, pivot, edit and format the data in Excel, before posting it back into AX, and finally using SQL Server Reporting Services to generate an interactive (and very appealing) report of the data from within
