Companies often take the time and effort to deploy a powerful enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution, such as Microsoft Dynamics AX, yet avoid the occasional updates.
Microsoft is one of the leaders in enterprise software and one of the biggest research and development spenders. Over 1,000 of their talented employees hold doctorates and countless other creative developers lend their innovative insights to improving upon the technology. Businesses using Microsoft solutions, particularly Microsoft Dynamics AX, benefit from this depth of expertise through the improvements that are made and rolled-out in the form of an update. Updates often include new features for industry functionality, to streamline or shorten common procedures, or otherwise improve the user experience. Making software better, easier, and/or faster is good for productivity and your bottom line, which you wouldn’t want to avoid.
In regard to Microsoft Dynamics AX, the most recent series of updates have included powerful enhancements and there could be more to come:
1. Cumulative update 9
Included new functionality for ACA reporting, POS updates for retail modules, as well as improved warehouse and transportation management capabilities.
2. Cumulative update 8

3. Cumulative update 7
