Introducing Dynamics AX

A business solution for global enterprises that supports industry-specific and operational business processes, along with comprehensive, core enterprise resource planning (ERP) functionality for financial and HRM. It empowers your people to anticipate and embrace change so your business can thrive.

Business Success Demands Change

People

The Greek philosopher Heraclitus said, Change is the only constant But what we are now seeing is that change is actually accelerating. Specifically, we expect change across 4 key vectors:

THE FIRST AREA IS PEOPLE For the first time, the new generation is one that has grown up always connected, and always on-line. They enter the workforce approaching technology with brand new attitudes, skills and expectations.

They expect solutions to be instant on. This is really the mindset of, theres an App for that. Solutions must be super easy to find, fast to install, and super, super easy to use. The On Button is going to be new manual.

Always online They expect to be able to access information from any device, as often as they want, no matter where they are. More often than not, this includes their personal devices!

Social You and I are of the same generation, Guy. While were still hip and use social tools , we still spend a lot of time meeting face-to-face, doing phone conferencing, and sending email. The new generation interacts more and more via Instant Messaging, tagging, video conferencing, and through venues similar to Facebook.

A lot of very interesting data support this:

One of every three college students and young employees believe the internet is as important as air, water, food, and shelter!

46-percent say that their laptop is the most important technology in their daily lives

Seven in ten Facebook users, and 68-percent of all Twitter users have friended or are following a coworker or a boss.

SECOND CHANGE IS ECONOMIC. 2009s DOWNTURN WAS A BIG UPSET

There is likely going to be fewer budget dollars in the IT department more decision power moving into LOB EXAMPLE:

Gartner Group put an article out on this. It predicted that by 2017 the CMO will likely have larger IT-budget than the CIO!

Secondly, we see an increased focus on Time to Value customers want to make sure they do not end up in more prolonged projects, and have consultants occupy the office for months before value is delivered.

The third thing is Paying for use no more paying for stuff that is not being used (aka shelfware) or used only rarely when the budget is tightened this is where many CIOs will go to find room.

Finally - instead of replacing the entire solution first focus on updating areas where the most value can be derived, then address other areas later we refer to this as Evolution vs. Revolution .

The third is GEOPOLITICAL: The business world getting flatter.

Disruptions in one part of the world that previously took time to spread, can now ripple quickly through connected supply chains to impact local markets, and business decisions in the very short term.

Successful businesses must therefore react with increasing speed to these changing conditions, and must balance a growing number of factors in managing their operations today and looking for new opportunities tomorrow.

The last area is that of TECHNOLOGY change cloud is emerging as the most significant technology shift in a generation, but thus far we have only seen a fraction of the value captured.

The cloud is advertized everywhere in the airport, driving down the highway. Its touted as the be-all-end-all, but its not being utilized to its fullest capacity.

The initial approach from many vendors has been to rush to offer the application in a hosted setting. Much focus is placed on muti-tenancy versus actual customer benefits.

These are important, but it is increasingly clear that cloud offers a lot more than just a way of deployment. Cloud represents the ability to solve problems that previously businesses just couldnt address.

Such as :The ability to capture and analyze vast amounts of data (Big data). For example determining the impact your latest campaign has had in the Twittersphere.

The ability to spin-up new computing environments and scale them seamlessly no more waiting around for hardware to turn up.

The ability to easily connect with the world everything is already on the internet.

And the ability to access systems through a multitude of different devices as long as they are connected via the web.
