Microsoft Dynamics AX

A comprehensive set of business applications from Microsoft created by Danish-based Damgaard Data A/S under the Axapta brand and acquired by Microsoft in 2002. Introduced in Denmark and the U.S. in 1998, Dynamics AX (Axapta) includes its own development system, which consists of the MorphX environment and X++ programming language. The traditional offerings include CRM, financials (general ledger, A/R, A/P, etc.), supply chain (inventory), human resources, etc., while Dynamics AX 2009 added shop floor control and cost accounting among others.

In 1983, Damgaard Data was founded by brothers Preben and Erik Damgaard. The company merged with Navison Software A/S in 2000 and was renamed NavisonDamgaard and later Navison A/S. In 2002, Microsoft acquired Navison, and thus the Axapta software. See Microsoft Dynamics.
