Convergence AX 2012 Warehouse & Transportation Announcement a Great Start But Functionality Still Falls Short

At the annual Dynamics Conference in New Orleans, Microsoft announced that new releases of AX 2012 will have new "base" warehouse and transportation functionality available. This is wonderful news and a step in the right direction, but it's a stop gap measure at best. If MS really wants to compete with SAP and Oracle in the global supply chain arena, they need to step up their offerings with Tier I solutions and Partners that have deep domain expertise and solutions that allow users to implement and manage strategies on a global supply chain basis. Until that happens, the competition will still have a leg up.
