Summary: Both Dynamics AX and Dynamics NAV ERP (mobile versions) are axed by Microsoft; reasons not given
THE OTHER day we wrote about Microsoft canceling and burying yet another product; there is a small correction to be made though. Not one product was discontinued but two. And according to Mary Jo Foley, Microsoft is unable to provide an explanation (excuse).
Microsoft officials notified the company’s partners on September 1 that Microsoft is discontinuing the mobile versions of its Dynamics AX and Dynamics NAV ERP products.
(Word of the move trickled out broadly last Friday, via a report from IDG News Service.)
What is still not clear is why Microsoft officials made the decision to phase out the two products. I asked why Microsoft decided to discontinue the mobile clients for the Dynamics products, but received an answer from a spokesperson that elaborated on the “when,” but omitted the “why.”
