18 Analyst Validation “Enterprise applications have traditionally been at cross purposes: the more complex the processes they support, the more difficult they are for users to learn and adopt. With Dynamics AX 2012, Microsoft adds support for greater complexity while making work simpler for administrators, developers, and end users..” Research Note: Previewing Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012, April 2011 Research Note: Previewing Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 “They have actually done a nice job of combining process manufacturing, discrete manufacturing and lean manufacturing in one product.
