Microsoft Dynamics Technical Conference, 2016 / What Excites You?

My report from the technical conference.


For my very last blog on #AXTechConf #DynTech2016, let’s have a little fun. Microsoft posted a whiteboard asking us “What most excites you with the new Microsoft Dynamics AX?” I had time between the end of the conference and my flight home, so I checked out the board. It was a lot of fun! I saw some answers I expected, and some I didn’t. Some made me laugh, and some made me shake my head. Enjoy the variety of answers received!

No more EP


New Task Recorder and web interface


The UI. This doesn’t look or feel like an ERP and that’s FANTASTIC.


It looks so sexy.


New AX – Power BI logo?


Dynamics AX7 will be a great development environment for ISVs. With fewer cowboys!

Your passion… we are excited.


That MS listens to the customer – keep doing so


Personal workspaces!


The fact that Microsoft is willing and eager to listen to the customers. I was pleased to see they are implementing in standard some things we had to customize previously. Although I am pleased the option to customize will still be there… for the times we need mods sooner. 🙂


Paying for every bit transferred and every CPU cycle. [Who hasn’t left their Azure machine up inadvertently?]


We are making ERP ‘sexy’ 🙂


Moving from P-code to managed code!!


After 20 years working with Sage, it’s refreshing and exciting to see passion again. Masterpiece from Microsoft.

This, folks, has been your intrepid reporter, signing off from the technical conference… I will be taking a smidgen of time off from the blog but will be back!


Happy DAXing!
