The Dynamics AX brand has been officially retired by Microsoft. As of July 1, 2017, new customers will not be able to buy Dynamics AX 2012 R3.

Existing Dynamics AX customers will still be able to purchase additional licences, but after July 1 these will be according to the revised pricing. The existing licences for customers that stay on the current Enhancement Plan will not be affected.
Mainstream support for the final version of Dynamics AX is set to continue until October 2021.
