Discover the powerful Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012
Deliver value faster with powerful foundation technology in a single solution.
Many ERP systems have never moved beyond managing the administrative dimension of your business, tracking general ledger, payroll, and HR, while the real operation of the business is managed elsewhere. Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 is different, covering both the administrative and operational requirements.
To do this, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012:
- Delivers rich, prebuilt, industry-operational functionality out of the box.
- Is a truly global solution, designed to scale with your business.
- Provides a Role-Tailored user experience.
a. Pre-built Industry and Operational Capability
Microsoft Dynamics AX provides pre-built industry and operational capabilities give you more value faster.
Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 delivers rich, prebuilt, industry-operational functionality out of the box, with proven functionality for manufacturing (process, discrete, and lean), distribution, retail, public sector, and service industries. By delivering this capability, Microsoft Dynamics AX gives you more value faster, and establishes a strong platform for independent software vendors (ISVs) to more efficiently deliver the specialized vertical functionality unique to verticals within those industries.
Stronger base functionality and a broad portfolio of specialized vertical solutions means a better fit for the needs of your business, more value, and more rapid time to value. Microsoft Dynamics AX uniquely combines industry-specific capabilities in one solution and makes them available to all customers, benefiting organizations that require capabilities for more than one industry.
b. Global Solution
Microsoft Dynamics AX provides a global solution that grows easily with your business.
Microsoft Dynamics AX is a global solution, designed to scale with your business. Simple enough to deploy for a single business unit in a single country, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 supports the unique requirements for business systems in 36 countries – all from a single-instance deployment of the software.
Multiple currencies, multiple time zones, multiple languages, and compliance with multiple banking and reporting standards and legislative codes give you the global coverage that you require. The layered architecture and installable language packs provide the flexibility for future growth to other markets, including options for agile, partner-led localization.
c. Role Tailored User Interface
Microsoft Dynamics AX provides a Role-Tailored user interface which provides instant insight and productivity for your people.
The Role-Tailored user interface spans the Microsoft Dynamics AX rich client and Enterprise Portal and helps drive productivity and business insight through its familiar user experience and connection with business processes. Microsoft Word and Excel, familiar and powerful tools that workers already know and use, work bi-directionally with Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 to enhance worker productivity. A flexible Help system provides added support when it is needed.
The value of a business system is not only about the ease of entering transactions, instead it is about turning those transactions into information, or business intelligence (BI), to help users make faster, better decisions. To do this, business intelligence must be an embedded part of the application, not a separate tool that requires users to take additional steps and switch contexts. Rich, embedded BI is at the core of Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 with:
- More than 30 Role Centres shipped out of the box, to provide the right BI for each user’s job role.
- 11 SQL Analytics Server Cubes that provide data to Role Centres.
- Key performance indicators that are role based and tailored to each process.
- Over 800 out-of-the-box reports, all delivered through SQL Server Reporting Services.
- Rich interoperability with Microsoft Excel for outputting report and enabling analysis.
- Interoperability with Microsoft PowerPivot for ad hoc slicing and dicing.
- InfoParts providing in-context BI fully embedded throughout the Microsoft Dynamics AX user experience.
