Microsoft Dynamics AX Benefits Estimator - Overview
Well I hope everyone is doing well today, and your active, productive and driving the Dynamics world we all live and work in. One of the trending Dynamics topics on twitter from yesterday, was around a new online tool Microsoft has released, the Microsoft Dynamics AX Benefits Estimator.
When working with the Benefits Estimator, there are 6 choices, with a key focus around the out-of-the-box industry sector focuses Microsoft offers for AX 2012. We see this, in the second screen, shown below here.
In selecting an industry sector focus, say Manufacturing, we are able to expand different bars, that cover topics like Increased Productivity, and Reduced Administrative Overhead for example. In expanding a bar, say the Increased Productivity bar, we are able to set slider values, that lead us to a dollar value for estimated annual savings for using Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012.
This is all based on information that was gathered via Nucleus Research, per the quote about the tool itself:
"This tool is absed on direct analyst interviews and research on Microsoft Dynamics published by Nucleus Research."
All in all, I think this is a very creative way, for taking staticly collected research data, and giving anyone, possible customers, partners, research analyst, a great way to ineract with that data in a very Dynamic way, that is targeted around specific industry sectors, and based on variables that apply directly to the possible customer that is needing a top notch ERP platform. I think Microsoft has a great marketing hit with this tool, and one that offers some real world information that can help customers see the value AX 2012 can bring to them.
Well that's all for this post, but check back soon as a whole lot more to come, including a new spotlight series on the Dynamics Ecosystem with Kimberly Jones, from Dynamics Hires! Till next time!
