Microsoft Dynamics AX: A Leader in Magic Quadrant for ERP

Email | Print

The Gartner Magic Quadrant Report is a research tool that evaluates markets based on "completeness of vision" and "ability to execute".  It specifically looks at "products that have a global presence and are specifically tailored for product-centric midmarket companies with roughly $50 million to $1 billion in revenue."

Among the markets that the Magic Quadrant analyzes is ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) software.  While other markets have experienced a decline during these rough economic times, the ERP market has remained steady, and many businesses are taking the recession as an opportunity to evaluate their ERP software systems.

The results from the Magic Quadrant evaluation indicate that Microsoft Dynamics AX is among the leaders in ERP because of its proven record of customer success and higher than normal rate of growth in the midmarket.  Microsoft Dynamics AX, according to the report, offers "broad and robust functionality and delivers low TCO (total cost of ownership) through integration of other Microsoft products and technologies."

Microsoft Dynamics AX has a user-friendly interface that is very similar to Microsoft Office.  This makes it easy to use, even for those unfamiliar with ERP.  It also includes RoleTailored dashboards that allow businesses to provide users with the interface variants they need whenever they need them.

Another key feature of Microsoft Dynamics AX is the growing pool of partners offering catered solutions to customers, including hosted subscription services that rival the competition's SaaS offerings.  All of this makes Dynamics AX a clear leader in midmarket ERP, one worth strong consideration for a business looking to make a change.
