Visit Website View Our Posts

Microsoft continues their biggest product and service launch year with the release of Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R2.

Existing Dynamics AX users have played a major role in influencing Microsoft’s research and development decisions on which features and product areas to focus on.   The motivating factor behind defining the key priorities and focus areas for the Dynamics AX 2012 R2 release was the desire to enhance the users’ ability to solve business priorities.

Here’s just a few of the great enhancements:

Updated budget planning - In Dynamics AX 2012 R2 you can now track the top down and bottom up budget costs, including views for different levels of the organization.  You also can use your organizational hierarchy as the basis for a budget plan and view budgets from every level of the hierarchy. Dynamics AX 2012 R2 can also budget payroll costs, variable costs and spending, integration with financials, and HR in terms of dollar and people deployments.

Improved Business Intelligence (BI) – Microsoft continues to enhance BI capabilities in Dynamics AX.  This release sees updated key performance indicator (KPI) content available in different role centres.  Additionally Power View, a new feature, will allow users to discover new insights through its interactive technology. For example, customer credit ratings can be merged with accounts receivable data in an interactive chart, allowing dynamic filtering of accounts based on size of the account and credit risk

Better human resource sharing and scheduling - Human Capital Management features have been improved to now include employee lifecycle management including the tracking of position changes and tighter budget integration.

You can read more about the upcoming features on the Microsoft Dynamics AX blog.

While these enhancements will improve how Dynamics AX runs today, you need to have the assurance that there are future development plans. At the Dynamics AX User Group (AXUG) Summit, other planned features beyond Dynamics AX 2012 R2 were introduced including updates to the expense capture phone app, and a new business analyzer tool for Windows 8 aimed at executives who want data delivered in a tablet-friendly interface.

  1. Hey would you mind letting me know which webhost you're utilizing? I've loaded your blog in 3 different internet
    browsers and I must say this blog loads a lot faster then most.
    Can you recommend a good internet hosting provider at a honest price?
    Thanks, I appreciate it!

  2. Yes but can they keep the trial balance in sync with GL journals without a dimension set rebuild? And will a detailed GL trial balance report run in any semblance of an acceptable time? It's all very well having all the business smarts but if the base product is a lemon it still makes your face skrunch up!
