Upcoming AX2012 Workflow Apps and Features

10 04 2013

I was recently pointed to this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=UJpCe_7sk0k from msdyncomm highlighting some very cool upcoming features for workflow in Dynamics AX 2012. I reviewed it this morning and was very encouraged to see the direction that workflow is going in. Workflow should make users lives simpler and more streamlined and the features highlighted will certainly go a long way in accomplishing this goal.

Interview with Guy Weismantel, Director of ERP Marketing, Microsoft

2 03 2011

Recently I was pointed towards a series of interesting videos recorded at the Microsoft Dynamics AX 2011 technical conference in Redmond (which I had the privilege of attending). These videos are informative and helpful in understanding Microsoft’s future vision of their Dynamics AX product, how it fits within the Microsoft Dynamics suite of products and how it aims to compete with rival’s products that have been moving into the market segment within which AX operates. The opportunity that the guys over at Software Advice seized to interview Guy Wismantel at the conference was definitely well used and has been very informative to me and I hope to you to, even if it isn’t directly related to workflow ;-)

Keep an eye out on the posts over at Software Advice as they will be publishing a number of new ones over the next couple of days.

In the first video Guy discusses the new functionality and approach that Microsoft has adopted with the release of Dynamics AX 2012

Dynamics AX Workflow 4.0 Preview

4 05 2010

Yesterday I came across the link for the preview with Josh Honeyman (principal lead for Dynamics WF) of Dynamics AX using Windows Workflow Foundation 4.0.


The video was very insightful and some of the new features are really neat. I for one am really looking forward to making use of this way of configuring workflows. Being able configure your workflow in a flow-chart style interface is a huge value-add. It really looks really powerful and intuative. I would be quite eager however to see how the developer experience for workflow will change as a result as many of the features enabled by the new configuration interface look like simply a more visual/intuative way of accomplishing what the current interface already does.

The talk about AX 6.0 being able to run managed code sounds exciting, I hope this means we can eventually get rid of the external workflow website.
