At Convergence in Atlanta, Microsoft unveils Dynamics AX 2012

Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 helps customers simplify decisions by delivering the following:

• A powerful foundation through prebuilt industry capabilities and comprehensive, core ERP functionality for financial, human resources and operations management. Delivered in a single, global solution, it gives customers rapid time to value and enables partners to easily deliver packaged vertical offerings.
• A new level of agility through a set of Unified Natural Models, which serves as a library of business processes that reflect real-world situations, and enables customers to easily modify their organizations and processes to meet their changing business needs.
• Simplicity across the board, through the intuitive RoleTailored experience and access to context-sensitive business intelligence (BI) that is relevant to the work at hand. The familiar Microsoft Office user interface drives adoption, and the enhanced BI capabilities help customers uncover fresh insights that can lead to faster and more informed decision-making.

The beta of Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 will be released in April 2011. The final release is expected to be generally available in August 2011.
