Video: Insight into the Microsoft ERP Mix

Where does Microsoft Dynamics AX stand in the Microsoft ERP Mix?

Don Fornes, CEO of our partner Software Advice, interviewed the Microsoft ERP Director of Marketing, Guy Weismantel, about the latest updates to the Microsoft ERP product line. In this segment he provides some clues to release dates of Microsoft products and their fit to the market place.

Providing some interesting insight into the Microsoft Dynamics product line, Mr. Weismantel discusses the release plan for the various MS Dynamics products. Interestingly enough, he talks about how they go to market with the different products based on geography and customer buying behaviors. In the video, he talks about the following:

  • Dynamics AX and its niche for high end, multi-channel, multi-country/language strengths
  • Dynamics GP and how they play to its strengths (and even mentions a few weaknesses)
  • Dynamics NV which is a highly customizable solution for vertical markets
  • Dynamics SL which provides a good fit for project accounting clients
  • This is the fourth in a series of 7 videos that we will be posting.
