With the launch of Microsoft Dynamics AX, also known in the channel as Dynamics AX7, Microsoft is now offering simple, transparent and flexible per-user licensing on monthly AX subscriptions. Dynamics AX cloud subscriptions will include the software licenses and the Azure cloud infrastructure.
The new Microsoft Dynamics AX licensing for cloud will initially only be available through Microsoft and will be made widely available six months from the initial release. Once the new version is widely available, enterprises with tight restrictions regarding compliance and data-sovereignty will be able to deploy the latest AX release on-premise using Microsoft Azure Stack or they can launch the new version in the cloud through RoseASP’s audit-ready Dynamics AX hosting services.
Dynamics AX Pricing is available two ways–through a Dynamics Enterprise Agreement (EA) or through a Cloud Solution Provider (CSP) Partner. CSP Tier 1 partners are able to bundle monthly AX hosting with tailored services for Dynamics AX on Azure, so it’s likely that prices will vary by Dynamics Partner depending on the level of services offered.
There are now only 3 user types for AX7 rather than the 4 types previously available for AX 2012R3 –Enterprise User, Device User, Task User and Self-Service User. See the Microsoft Dynamics AX Cloud Subscription Pricing List below (rounded to the nearest dollar).
Enterprise User – 20 User minimum: $185 per user/month Task User – Approve time/expense/ invoices, add sales & purchase invoices: $30 per user/month Self-Service User – Record time & expense, create requisitions & budget activities, view rights into AX – $8 per user/month Functional users no longer available Note: Device Licenses are also available, intended for POS, Warehouse & Store Manager Devices for $73 per user/ month. One Enterprise User can be swapped out for 2.5 Device CALs – no other swapping of licenses is allowed.

A variety of “premium” sandboxes are also available from $1,300 – $12,000 per month.
The new Dynamics AX pricing and licensing offers a lot of scalability and flexibility to large-scale enterprise AX deployments, but a Dynamics AX 2012 R3 deployment may still be the better option for many customers. Here are a few important details to note about Dynamics AX as Service on Azure:
Microsoft customers currently on AX 2012 will be entitled to upgrade to the next On-Premises version of Microsoft Dynamics AX, expected to be released during the 2nd half of 2016.
What if I want to keep AX 2012 in the Cloud? RoseASP will continue to support hosting customers with existing AX 2012R3 or earlier licenses.
What if I want the new version of AX with fewer than 20 ?
Enterprises that need to deploy AX with fewer than 20 users can do so through a private cloud hosting provider offering a lower user minimum. RoseASP can provide cloud services for 10-users or more on Microsoft Dynamics AX in our audit-ready private cloud environment. We currently offer AX2012 R3 in the cloud and will be offering the new version of Microsoft Dynamics AX (AX7) as soon as the new AX cloud subscription licenses are made available to cloud hosters. We specialize in hosting mission critical data and accounting systems regulated by SOX, HIPAA, FDA and more.
