What languages are each of the different Dynamics 365 products now and what is the "AX" version of Dynamics called now??

Posted on by 150

What are we calling the "AX" version of Dynamics 365 these days? I hear "Unified Operations" here and there and looking at Microsoft's Dynamics 365 webpage they show both "Finance" and "Operations", but their images both have the same "Finance and Operations" header. I see these listed (picture below):

  • Sales - Is this a fork of CRM? What language is this?
  • Marketing - Is this a fork of CRM? What language is this?
  • Service - Is this a fork of CRM? What language is this?
  • Finance - The image says "Finance and Operations" so is it AX?
  • Operations - The image says "Finance and Operations" so is it AX too?
  • Commerce - Dynamics AX for Retail?
  • HR - ?

I thought Great Plains or Dynamics SL was one of them?

Can anyone clear up what programming language each uses, what it stems from, etc?

    X++ is the development language for D365FO

    IDE is visual studio

    Retail development needs quite a good knowledge of typescript, Fiddler and .Net C# for POS and Retail HR

    Mobile app development needs Browser/Fiddler

    I usually search with term D365 for finance and operations  and get results.  Most of the things related to development(x++) are available on next page

    docs.microsoft.com/.../developer-home-page

    I'm still a little confused. Currently, I'm an AX (x++) developer plus I've developed some in AX7 (Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations), but when I try to explain to people what I can develop in...I'm getting confused. When I try to Google D365 (AX7 version) I have trouble with search terms.

    If I go to dynamics.microsoft.com/.../ which can I program X++ in? When I look at docs.microsoft.com/.../, I'm lost...but I'm thinking these are sub-sections of the pricing link?

    Hi Wmyk ,

    Dynamics 365 for Finance and operation is Licensed as Finance and Supply chain now and primarily is uses x++ as coding language , As far as I know sales  uses  c# as a coding language and  front end is based on ASP.NET and JavaScript.

    I believe HR (Talent) must be using x++ as an coding language as its a HR module from F&O with added functionality .

    Retail is  also another app with base of  F&O and you have to do coding  in using both x++ and c# for POS development.

    As per Microsoft's October 2018 release notes that: “This is a convergence point for Dynamics SMB products—going forward, they are all considered customers of Business Central, in the cloud or on-premises, even if they are running differently branded products such as Dynamics SL, Dynamics GP, and older versions of Dynamics NAV.”

    Hi,

    For 'AX', which was previously called ... for finance and operations ... there are a lot of languages available.

    To get an overview of the different countries/regions and languages supported, have a look at this page:

    docs.microsoft.com/.../country-region

    The second hyperlink opens a PDF that shows the different localiations for the different dynamics 365 products.

    One of them is of course D365  Finance and one is D365 Supply Chain Management, which were previously referred to as 'finance and operations'.

    A lot of name changes but the PDF document provides you a good overview.

    Best regards,

    Ludwig
