If you are a Microsoft house, you’ll be glad to know that Microsoft announced that Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R3 is now GA (generally available) in 36 countries. What is Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R3? It is built to help businesses take advantage of cloud services, run agile operations that exceed customer needs, engage customers on their terms across the Web, social, apps and mobile fronts.
For Microsoft, this is significant release because it is extending it’s mainstream support for customers upgrading to, or purchasing, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R3 by 2 years, to October 11, 2018. This support is extended to provide all customers with the standard product support lifecycle transition timeline. This extended support timeline gives customers more flexibility to choose the best timing for their business to upgrade to the next major release. What I am seeing is that if you want your technology to be agile and flexible, one of the best ways (and sometimes the only way is if you move to the cloud. The question is are you ready? Is IT ready? Are the functional areas ready? Are the functional departments collaborating with IT to make this happen? Who is making the business case to make the change?
If you want more additional details, about this you can go to the Support Lifecycle Policy website here.
