Solution Updates

Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Operations

During February and March, we migrated our solutions to the new, late-fall release of Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Operations with platform update 3. Let me give a short update by solution. On the ADM side, we are progressing on various fronts. We are nearing completion of the 1611 AppSuite compatibility, and within this project we managed to provide a large number of quality updates both in code as in content, such are the data packages. At the same time, we started to continuously work forwards with Microsoft R&D on adopting the extensions technology so we move out of overlaying. For the ADM team this is a large effort and will take many more months to complete. The aim is to remove all overlayering, so we are able to detach our code from the AppSuite code. End result we look for is a large improvement in migration speed. For ADM this is very complex, due to the many hookpoints into the AppSuite codebase. For other solutions this is less intrusive. Our Business integrations team have completed EDI Studio late February and now we have the complete offering available. Next thing on the roadmap is Data Migration as a Service. This will be an exciting journey into a new and modern type of offering. Or mobility solutions progress is on track per below roadmap. Our Invoice workflow solution team has embarked on a project to add new capabilities in invoice viewing and document management.    


Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012

As regards AX 2012, we are working on the migration to CU12, the latest CU release on R3. We shipped Business Integration solutions last month. Besides that, we have gotten feedback from many of you that the Visio integration in the latest updates is causing disruption in process modelling in the RapidValue for AX 2012 R3 release. We now are working a project to downgrade the Dynamics 365 modeller to AX 2012. I am convinced this will hugely improve the reliability and performance for users in the BPM modelling space. With regards to AX 2012 moving ahead in light of recent developments with the new deployment options for Hybrid and On-Prem coming out, I am curious to see what will happen with the investment in next releases on AX 2012 from a Microsoft point of view. 


Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2017

As mentioned in the top section, NAV is ready for business on NAV 2017! We are now working on several innovations we want to do in the areas of visual scheduling and planning.
