    6/22/2011 Update from Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 Team

    Great news!!  For what may be a first, we are moving the Virtual Launch of Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 forward. That is right we are moving the date to September 8, five days earlier. Moving this event to this date and closer to General Availability of Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 will allow us to create a bigger bang and maximize awareness in the market. It also helps us drive pipeline soon after GA and summer holidays worldwide.

If your event is happening on the September 13, the virtual event can still be utilized on demand. The only difference will be the utilization of live online chat. Keep in mind that September 26 still remains the date for the listing of your activities on our launch site as discussed on the US Partner Launch Portal.
