We started this journey two years back and yesterday was a historical day when the product was RTM'ed. Microsoft Dynamics AX 2009 is available now for download from Partner Sourcehttps://mbs.microsoft.com/partnersource/support/selfsupport/productreleases/DynamicsAX2009release.htm.

 

This is a significant release with tons of new app & framework features with solid tighter integration to Microsoft platform technologies. The team size almost doubled in all three locations during this release and it was a phenomenal immersing experience working across three different sites/time zones and working with various disciplines in my product feature areas from the idea/conceptual state and taking it to a real shippable end product state.

You will see an awesome looking Enterprise Portal using ASP.net AJAX . You can do amazing things with this powerful ASP.net based EP framework and VS.net development tools . You can take advantage of greater user interface interactivity and responsiveness through the use of Asynchronous JavaScript and XML (AJAX) and ASP.NET and build rich web applications. In this release performance and throughput has increased many fold and setup is made simpler.
