So we’re now into our Fiscal Year 11 at Microsoft – FY10 saw some great growth for AX after what was a very challenging FY09 for all of us. For those of you attending WPC, I’m sure you’ll hear more there about the growth being seen, as well as a view of what will be coming over the next 6 months for AX. You’ll see an updated roadmap and Statement of Direction, and below will give you an idea as to how that roadmap will be panning out.
