As part of Systems Advisors Group’s focus on delivering Microsoft Dynamics AX ERP solutions to project-driven organizations, we’ve offered multiple solution approaches depending on the client’s preferred project management paradigm. We’ve seen a pretty wide disparity in terms of the maturity and sophistication levels of our clients’ project management practices, so it’s critical that we fit these organizations into the correct project management model so that they strike the right balance between functionality and complexity.
As discussed on this blog previously, the Architecture & Engineering market is a key vertical market for SAGlobal, and is one of three core services-based industries that we provide Microsoft Dynamics AX ERP solutions to. We are putting an increased emphasis on the A&E market these days, as we were recently selected as one of three Dynamics AX partners to participate in Microsoft’s Virtual Industry Team Unit (VITU), where we’ll be working closely with Microsoft to take Microsoft Dynamics AX solutions to market in the A&E industry.
Over the years, ERP software systems has got a very good at collecting large volumes of information about your business. For professional services organizations, this includes capturing all sorts of details about your clients, your projects, your finances, and your resources. The challenge has always been for ERP systems to provide the ability for your users to access that data in a meaningful way that can help them make good business decisions.
For those looking for further validation around the leadership position that Microsoft Dynamics AX has established in the ERP market, look no further than the newly released 2012 Gartner Group Mid-Market Magic Quadrant. Gartner’s popular Magic Quadrant analysis has become the most sought after and reputable source of information about the state of the ERP market and the vendors and solutions that are available.
