A Brief History of DAX

When Axapta®, now Microsoft® Business Solutions–Axapta { Microsoft Dynamics AX}, was released in 1998, it brought an exciting new object-oriented technology within reach of midsize companies that needed a powerful, scalable business management suite to run their operations. The new solution featured advanced ideas and technology such as:

* Multilanguage, multi-country capability
* Auto size (IntelliMorph), for easy customization
* Feature keys, for easy upgrades
* No fixed numbers
* Keep information stored in one single database
