Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 – Powerfully Simple for Manufacturers

Posted on: July 2, 2012 | By: SuperUser Account | Microsoft Dynamics AX/365

Microsoft is committed to continually providing powerful, agile, simple solutions that deliver value to manufacturing organizations, today and tomorrow. Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 is the latest evidence of this commitment. With more than 1,000 new features and enhancements across core ERP and manufacturing-specific capabilities, this new release will help you run and continuously improve your own unique mix of manufacturing models, across multiple sites and geographies.

Connecting and driving these capabilities is what we call pervasive interoperability, the natural interaction of Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 with other Microsoft business productivity applications and IT infrastructure, communications solutions, and the underlying technology platform that works on-premises or in the cloud.

Manufacturers are struggling to close the gap between their business requirements and the capabilities of their current business systems. In addition many organizations lack the insight into their global operations due to the wide variety of legacy systems across the organization. The lack of a single system that grows with the business is evident. In addition, they’re challenged to give their people access to relevant information.

Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 will help you gain more value quickly with a single, powerful solution that supports industry-specific and operational demands across your global enterprise.
Let me explain how:

  • Purposely built for the manufacturing industry: Meet your manufacturing business requirements with a solution purposely built for these needs. For example: improve production control through a variety of systems: make-to-order, make-to-stock, or engineer-to-order or enhance customer and vendor agreements with flexible contract structures. A network of specialized business partners extends these capabilities even further to meet your needs in specific industries through packaged solutions. In addition you can support your organization end-to-end with rich core ERP capabilities, including HR, finance, and governance, risk, and compliance (GRC) management to streamline operations and increase efficiency across your global organizations. All with a single solution!
  • Scale your organization quickly with a global manufacturing solution: Run your organization and expand into new geographies using 36 country localizations built into one solution. Packaged localizations to meet local financial regulations in about 36 countries are included and maintained in Microsoft Dynamics AX helping organization meet the changing regulations in specific markets. In addition enable entities in your multisite organization to share data, business rules and processes in order to harmonize and streamline business processes. For example, enable global manufacturing planning with a unified operations resources models, or enhance operational efficiency with shared data for general ledger, relationships, and products; and common processes for intercompany trade and shared services.
  • Gain immediate insight and unlock greater productivity with Role-Tailored user experiences: Boost productivity with Role-Tailored enhancements including new Role Centers, fact boxes, and enriched previews. Provide ad hoc, self-service business intelligence and reporting for key manufacturing operations, including pre-built reports from Microsoft SQL Server® Reporting Services. Provide business process context via notifications and alerts initiated by embedded workflows.

Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 meets these needs by introducing a generation shift in the way we think about the ERP model.
