Microsoft Dynamics AX is one of the Microsoft’s robust ERP tools which caters to the needs of an Enterprise business. It is suited to fulfill the requirements of a company which sustains via the use of enterprise-level software and systems.

Brothers Preben and Erik Damgaard founded the company Damgaard Data with the purpose of creating a computer-based accounting software for business owners. Microsoft Dynamics AX, originally named IBM Axapta, was first released in 1998 with collaborative efforts from IBM and Damgaard – but did anyone know that in a few years it was going to become one of the leading enterprise-level ERPs in the market?

In December 2000, Damgaard Data merged with Navision Software A/S to form NavisionDamgaard which released the next version – Axapta 2.5.

2002 saw the company NavisionDamgaard become Navision A/S. Later that year, Microsoft acquired the combined company and released the next version for the ERP – Axapta 3.0.

Microsoft released Microsoft Dynamics AX 4.0 in 2006 and the next version in 2008. Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 was released which was supported in more than 30 countries and 25 languages.

In February 2016, Microsoft Dynamics AX, widely known as AX7 was released. It was a major revision of the platform with a completely new UI delivered through a browser-based HTML5 client.

Microsoft then dropped the nomenclature of year and version in October 2106 and released a completely rebranded Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Operations.

Again in July 2017,  Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations was released to better meet the requirements of any enterprise business organization. Also, an additional version was released –  Dynamics 365 for Retail.

Over time, Microsoft Dynamics has grown to become one of the most widely used ERP tools in the market and has efficiently helped a lot of Enterprise-level business ventures scale up with productivity.
