Partner News Podcast: Microsoft Dynamics AX 2009 ERP software debuts

Microsoft's Dynamics AX product manager discusses the selling points and partner opportunities for the company's latest ERP offering.

Microsoft Dynamics AX 2009, the newest version of Microsoft ERP software, becomes available June 2. Kees Hertogh, the Microsoft Dynamics AX product manager, stops by the studio to discuss how partners can sell the enterprise resource planning (ERP) software and what additional services they can provide.

The staff also discusses growth in Apple's enterprise business, spurred by the iPhone, negative reactions to Windows Vista, and, of course, those Mac vs. PC ads. And senior news writer Rivka Little joins in for a conversation about unified communications (UC) providers targeting small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs).

Next time on the Partner News Podcast, Dell channel community manager Amie Paxtion will talk about the new Dell Channel Blog and other happenings with Dell's young partner program.
