2018-10-10_AX-BlogLike many terms in IT, the word ‘cloud’ carries with it a number of meanings. This can lead to a lot of confusion and can mean that each cloud implementation is as unique as the company driving the deployment. The message, however, is clear: Cloud is the future.

In a recent AXUG article, Scott Morley, Principal Application Architect at OneNeck shared insights on Microsoft Dynamics AX and how it could easily be the poster child for modern legacy generations. In the article, which starts on page 48, Scott states, “Though scarce, version 4 deployments are still out there. 2009, 2012, 2012 R2 and 2012 R3 are all distinct generations, and yet they all still run just fine. Admittedly, some are now unsupported, but they are hardly antiquated.”

You can also hear Scott discuss this and much more at the upcoming AXUG Summit, October 14-17. He will present Summit Sessions:

  • Getting Started with Azure on Tuesday, Oct. 16, 9:45-10:45 a.m.
  • Exploring Azure Service Fabric & Azure Cloud Differences on Thursday, Oct. 18, 1:15-2:15 p.m.


As any company that has already started a cloud journey can attest, the easy button may not work when it comes to AX 2012, despite what the experts say.

Evaluating your current environment against the supported OS versions, ensuring the correct connectivity and reviewing compliance requirements (like data sovereignty) are all key components to any cloud migration.
