Introduction Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 is the Microsoft ®  enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution for enterprises that empowers your people to anticipate and embrace change so that your business can thrive. Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 is designed for enterprises with 200 to 7,500 users. It helps employees be more productive and increases the value of information by providing all people in the organization with access to important  business information and processes. Because it includes rich industry and core ERP capabilities in a single, global solution, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012  promotes faster time to value. Simple to learn and use, it provides the agility that you need to expand business opportunities, modify processes, and differentiate your business. With pervasive interoperability, you can take advantage of existing investments, lower the total cost of ownership (TCO), and support innovation in your organization. Microsoft Dynamics AX supports global organizations by managing multisite operations through shared master data and business processes, as well as country-specific capabilities, in a single instance. Rich ERP capabilities also support human resources, financials, project management, and sales and marketing. The Microsoft Dynamics RoleTailored user interface includes more than 30 Role Centers and makes it easier for everyone in key business areas to access and share ad hoc, self-service business intelligence and reporting.  Introduction to Microsoft Dynamics ®  AX 2012 1-2 Powerful Deliver value faster with powerful foundation technology in a single solution. Many Enterprise Resource Management (ERP) systems have never moved  beyond managing the administrative dimension of your business, tracking general ledger, payroll, and HR, while the real operation of the business is managed elsewhere. Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 is different, covering both the administrative and operational requirements. To do this, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 : ã   Delivers rich, prebuilt, industry-operational functionality out of the  box. ã   Is a truly global solution, designed to scale with your business. ã   Provides a RoleTailored user experience. Pre-built Industry and Operational Capability Microsoft Dynamics AX provides pre-built industry and operational capabilities gives you more value faster. Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 delivers rich, prebuilt, industry-operational functionality out of the box, with proven functionality for manufacturing (process, discrete, and lean), distribution, retail, public sector, and service industries. By delivering this capability, Microsoft Dynamics AX gives you more value faster, and establishes a strong platform for independent software vendors (ISVs) to more efficiently deliver the specialized vertical functionality unique to verticals within those industries. Stronger base functionality and a broad portfolio of specialized vertical solutions means a better fit for the needs of your business, more value, and more rapid time to value. Microsoft Dynamics AX uniquely combines industry-specific capabilities in one solution and makes them available to all customers, benefiting organizations that require capabilities for more than one industry. Global Solution Microsoft Dynamics AX provides a global solution that grows easily with your business. Microsoft Dynamics AX is a global solution, designed to scale with your  business. Simple enough to deploy for a single business unit in a single country, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 supports the unique requirements for business systems in 36 countries - all from a single-instance deployment of the software.  Chapter 1: Overview 1-3 Multiple currencies, multiple time zones, multiple languages, and compliance with multiple banking and reporting standards and legislative codes give you the global coverage that you require. The layered architecture and installable language packs provide the flexibility for future growth to other markets, including options for agile, partner-led localization. Role Tailored User Interface Microsoft Dynamics AX provides a RoleTailored user interface which provides instant insight and productivity for your  people. The RoleTailored user interface spans the Microsoft Dynamics AX rich client and Enterprise Portal and helps drive productivity and business insight through its familiar user experience and connection with business processes. Microsoft Word and Excel ® , familiar and powerful tools that workers already know and use, work bidirectionally with Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 to enhance worker  productivity. A flexible Help system provides added support when it is needed. The value of a business system is not only about the ease of entering transactions, instead it is about turning those transactions into information, or business intelligence (BI), to help users make faster, better decisions. To do this, business intelligence must be an embedded part of the application, not a separate tool that requires users to take additional steps and switch contexts. Rich, embedded BI is at the core of Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 with: ã   More than 30 Role Centers shipped out of the box, to provide the right BI for each user's job role. ã   11 SQL Analytics Server Cubes that provide data to Role Centers. ã   Key performance indicators that are role based and tailored to each  process. ã   Over 800 out-of-the-box reports, all delivered through SQL ®  Server Reporting Services. ã   Rich interoperability with Microsoft Excel for outputting report and enabling analysis. ã   Interoperability with Microsoft PowerPivot for ad hoc slicing and dicing. ã   InfoParts providing in-context BI fully embedded throughout the Microsoft Dynamics AX user experience.  Introduction to Microsoft Dynamics ®  AX 2012 1-4 Agile Increase agility and expand business opportunities while reducing risk. Excellence for a business application begins with two primary challenges: how well does the software model the real-world, and how quickly can I make it fit my business in a rapidly changing world? If the fidelity between software model and reality is high, then implementation is straightforward and the software can  provide strong insight, empowering efficient business execution. If it is not, then implementation is filled with compromises and workarounds and using the software is filled with challenge and complexity. It is that simple, and it is the  beginning of why Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 is different. Unified Natural Model Microsoft Dynamics AX provides a Unified Natural Model that lets you plan, see and change your business. Unified, natural models make modeling simple businesses fast and easy and yet still provide the richness and flexibility to represent the most complex organizations. Fundamental elements of the unified, natural models in Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 include the following: ã   Flexible business organization modeling. This lets you capture the  physical locations of your business, legal entity structure, and  business reporting structure. ã   Representation of business workflow, policies, and dollar limit - and the ability to specialize that policy for different parts of the organization model by using a graphical workflow editor, without any coding required. ã   Unlimited financial dimensions. This enables categorization and analysis of transactions across multiple views. ã   Date effectivity for data and models at the framework level, with additional security control on future effective information to enable  before-and-after reporting across organizational changes.
