    Microsoft tries to end ERP disorder 16.01.08
    Microsoft Company is evolving a general system base for all of its Dynamics ERP applications. Thanks to that innovative common code base Microsoft will be able to release new editions of the software more rapidly, therefore it will be more convenient for consumers to choose this or that application, said Kirill Tatarinov, vice president of Microsoft Business Solutions.
    The division controls the Dynamics series of products, which contains ERP applications such as GP (previously Great Plains), SL (previously Solomon), AX (previously Axapta) and NAV (previously Navision), the same as the company's CRM applications.
    Availability of common code base will enable applications to share identical user interface and controls, such as now are shared between AX and NAV, Tatarinov said. The common code base will also include database functions, APIs (application programming interfaces), business intelligence capabilities and communications technologies that allow VoIP (Voice over Internet protocol) and immediate messaging, he said.
    Microsoft Company studied a lot of things about ERP systems after acquisition Great Plains Software in 2001 and Navision in 2002, Tatarinov said. He also noted that Microsoft ERP product should be different for every market, as businesses have
    Users won't ever see a single Microsoft ERP product for all markets, since Microsoft realizes that businesses have different wants. Nevertheless Microsoft’s consumers, participated at Microsoft's Convergence 2007, uttered some bewilderment about different product series.
    Lars Jalve, financial manager for Transas, an organization that creates navigation tools for vessels and managing harbors, confessed that he didn’t understand the reason why Microsoft had released such a great quantity of different products.
    As for Transas itself, it implements the NAV product. Still Lars Jalve supposed that it would be easier for consumers if Microsoft had just one ERP product and then offered components with diverse functions that clientele could acquire independently according to their needs. He added that a product such as AX, which is meant to huge enterprises, might have functions that would appeal to people who are on ERP packages aimed at mid-size businesses.
    Hans Grappi who is a leader of project management for a waste disposal company in Switzerland, admitted that his company is interested in Microsoft ERP software, but the product set is too wide. We cite his words: "You can get lost in all of the different elements”.
