This version of the solution I am using is at the end of its life. I have been using Microsoft Dynamics AX seven out of ten.

My advice to others is they should use this solution but they need to find a good reseller. I rate Microsoft Dynamics AX an eight out of ten.

I'd advise new users to know first, what kind of business they are going to be, in or if that business needs to be running on top of Dynamics or not. If it's finance, then it's fine. If it's not finance, then they need to take something more industrious and geared towards a specific system. I'd rate the solution seven out of ten.

I would recommend it for a small business, but not on a larger scale. They can, in my opinion, meet their requirements. I would rate Microsoft Dynamics AX a seven out of ten.

I rate this solution a nine out of ten because the implementation was complex. I would recommend this solution to others, as long as they have the money for it.

I rate Microsoft Dynamics AX an eight out of ten. Whether or not someone should implement this solution depends on their user requirements. For us, it's for 100 people, so it's good, but I'm not sure if it would be good for more than 100 people. For a medium-sized business, it's good.

I would rate the solution a six out of ten. It will serve all basic purposes but from an analytics perspective, there will be some limitations. You will not get ready-made things from the solution. You need to develop or you need to integrate with multiple products to see that kind of reporting from it.

We're a Microsoft partner. We have customers working in the public cloud, private cloud, hybrid, and on-premises environments. I'd rate the solution at an eight out of ten. We have been quite pleased with the solution.

I work as an implementor and a consultant and I partner with Microsoft and SAP. In the country I work in, only on-premises solutions are possible. They are not going into cloud solutions at all. I'd rate the solution an eight out of ten. If a company has a good development infrastructure, and they have an in-house development team, for smaller software such as SAP Business One and NetSuite, you can go with one developer or fewer developers. However, with AX or Dynamics 365, normally you'd probably be best with three to four developers in-house.

My advice is to focus on the size of the business when it comes to creating a solution. For example, if it's a medium-sized company, don't offer Business Central. Instead, offer them AX for finance and operations. Or, or if they are not medium don't sell them finance and operations, sell them the Business Center it would be a better choice. Give the user what they need. I would rate this solution a ten out of ten.

On a scale from one to ten where one is the worst and ten is the best. I would rate Microsoft Dynamics as only a five-out-of-ten in general. It does not meet our needs and will essentially be decommissioned.

Microsoft Dynamics AX product is an ERP solution. We provide this solution to three categories. One of them is the supply chain, one finance, and the other, retail commerce. We are implementing the supply chain through a simple warehouse model, which is finance-based. This includes the general ledger and other accounting functions. We are providing solutions for cash registers and E-commerce alongside other back-office solutions.

Flexibility with how it is used. For example, if you have a specific way of working, Dynamics AX may or may not accommodate that. Although it provides a whole solution you may have to adapt your working methods to suit the product, and not how you would like to work. Sometimes the data forms provided for specific retail applications are not adequate and do not provide enough functions as the product itself is not designed for the retail industry it is mainly designed for automotive companies and distribution companies although Microsoft tried to add a retail element into the system. The product is standardised across industries so it is not a good fit for all types of sectors.

There should be the capability for users to enhance the application by using a low-code or no-code product from the Microsoft family. Scaling is complex and is something that can be improved. In the future, I would like to see more applications.
