Dynamics AX (formerly Axapta)
Heavy ERP solution for large organizations
The advanced technology of Dynamics AX meant Initially, that the solution could be scaled to support thousands of users. This technology also integrated Microsoft's other ERP solutions, which means that Dynamics AX no longer differs at this area. Dynamics AX is a costly solution that primarily is aimed at large organizations. The powerful platform less a 'out of the box' solution than for example Dynamics NAV and therefore require significantly more resources both that the implement and operate than Microsoft's other ERP solutions. Most companies that use Dynamics AX usually have full-time staff development resources and a broad IT group has expertise in ERP and business analysis.
Microsoft tends to recommend Dynamics AX for companies with a large number of users, this has more to do with how big they assume your budget is, rather than the solution's suitability to your specific business. Therefore we do not recommend that the size of your business the key parameter in your evaluation when you determine which ERP solution is right for your business.
In many cases it will be much more beneficial for a wide range of companies to choose Dynamics NAV rather than Dynamics AX, since this solution is far less costly, but still meet the needs of most companies.
