This week we've reached an important milestone – disclosure of the details of Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R2 to our technical community. If you’re @ the AX Technical Conference you have a unique opportunity to learn about these details firsthand. I am also happy to share that general availability of this release to our customers and partners is planned for December 1, 2012.
What’s new in R2? We’ve made a significant investment to expand the capability of AX across the application footprint. When I think about the enhancements made in this release, I’ve grouped them into 4 focus areas, which are highlighted below (we'll continue to provide more specifics on each of the areas in subsequent posts on this blog):

Just covering these highlights of Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R2, you start to realize the significance of this release, as it brings value across the board for many customers, both in their existing as well as new markets. I am specifically excited to see the release of these innovations in countries like Brazil, Russia, India and China, not only to serve our many great customers in these countries but also to help our customers in developing markets with their international operations.
I read a recent McKinsey research showing that the largest companies headquartered in developed economies currently derive only 17% of their revenues from emerging markets, even though these markets represent 36% of global GDP. Moreover, despite advantages in scale, technology, and access to capital, multinationals often lose out to more nimble local competitors. There are huge opportunities still untapped – significant growth predicted, GDP expanding from $12 to $30 trillion by 2025 – and 2 billion new consumers to enter the world market!
Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R2 is an excellent solution to help you tap into this opportunity. Are you ready?

These are great to summarise and share with a prospect. It so important a Vendor is investing in a product. Make it part of the prospects decision criteria.

hope this helps
