Microsoft Dynamics AX 7
Microsoft unveiled a sneak peek into Microsoft Dynamics AX 7 with plans for the first version to be released by the end of 2015 but the exact date hasn’t been revealed yet.
Since the new ‘AX 7’ is browser based, there are a few deprecated technologies including the Windows AX client, the Enterprise Portal, and the MorphX development workspace. In ‘AX 7’ development is available only from within Visual Studio.
The priorities for implementing the new ‘AX 7’ are first for new customers, followed closely by AX2012 R3 upgrades. Also, Microsoft announced extending support for AX2009 until 2018 and also that a direct upgrade path from AX2009 to ‘AX 7’ will be provided later in 2016.
