Wow what a great event the team put on yesterday here at the rugby mecca that is Twickenham stadium. As Marie mentioned yesterday in her welcome note blog some major announcements were made during Kirill's keynote as well as during the product general sessions that followed. One particularly notable for me given my industry focus was the announcment about additional Microsoft Dynamics AX for Retail release countries.
When we told you about the initial general availability of Microsoft Dynamics AX for Retail, we mentioned that it would soon be available in an additional 22 local markets. At Convergence Europe, we were happy to announce more specific details around this expanded availability, including confirming what the new 22 markets are, and that the solution will be generally available in these locations as of February 1, 2011. With Microsoft Dynamics AX for Retail, global retail organizations only need one solution, from one solution provider, that’s flexible enough to meet their specific needs to help them expand their business beyond their borders. Once released in these 22 additional markets, Microsoft Dynamics AX for Retail will be available in 38 global markets.
Microsoft Dynamics AX for Retail is designed for specialty retailers. It offers a deep level of integration across point of sale, store management, supply chain, merchandising and financial systems to address business productivity while enhancing customer service in a single solution. It also provides partners focused on the retail industry with an opportunity to focus their business on delivering the customer specific configurations and implementation services on a solid, scalable foundation.
I attended a packed breakout session on Microsoft Dynamics AX for Retail yesterday afternoon and met with a number of customers and partners who wholeheartedly welcomed the move to expand the number of countries for which the solution is available.
The newly announced 22 additional markets for Microsoft Dynamics AX for Retail are:
- Czech Republic
- Saudi Arabia
More information can be found on the Microsoft Dynamics AX for Retail product page.
Now onto the follow-up to London convergence and the partner industry day. More from me and the rest of the team once we hit Prague!!
