Microsoft’s latest investment in Dynamics is aimed at developers, not business users. The focus is independent software vendors (ISVs) which build vertical ERPs using Dynamics as a base.
The new version, now code-named Microsoft Dynamics AX 6, should reduce the need for customized code, and will be more tightly integrated with a range of other Microsoft software, such as SQL Server and Microsoft Office, according to the company.
Microsoft strategy is to rewrite Dynamics to get outside developers to use more of Microsoft stack. No mention of actual business customers of Dynamics, just the ISV / Microsoft distributors.
