Dynamics AX 2009 Support Ends in October 2018

 

image

There are several different articles in different blogs that talk about the looming date of October 2018 which brings the end of Dynamics AX 2009 support.

Well, lots of Microsoft software have pending dates when support will be ending. Windows 7 is one of the software packages that no longer has support. Yet people still use it.

You wonder, then, why there is so much concern over Dynamics AX 2009. The answer, for me, is in Henrik Marx Larsen’s article https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/dynamics-ax-2009-out-support-2018-you-ready-henrik-marx-larsen.

I think the main idea presented is that companies are going to need to start thinking about their short term and long term strategies for business infrastructure. The questions are:

Do we prepare for moving to the cloud now and get ready for the change before October 2018? Or, do we wait until into 2018, and see what the organizations in our industry are doing, and then make a decision?

It is a tough set of questions. What is your organization going to do?

In November of 2016, Windows PowerShell celebrated its ten year anniversary.  This is a major accomplishment.  Here is the computer definition of PowerShell.

PowerShell – Computer Definition

A comprehensive command line interface and scripting language for Windows. Introduced in 2006, PowerShell is a major upgrade from the Windows command line, which uses DOS commands – from www.yourdictionary.com

PowerShell is set to replace the Command Prompt still available in Windows. And, if you are a DOS user or a Command Prompt user, you will want to become familiar with all of the sweet features of PowerShell.  Some users say that if you know either Windows or Unix commands, you will have an easier time understanding and using PowerShell.

Here are different links to give you the information that you require to become familiar with PowerShell or go on to master PowerShell.
