There are four types of Microsoft Dynamics AX licenses that, although they allow access to all of the system’s modules, they also offer different actions and functionalities to the users. Microsoft supplies two licensing formats:

User

the license is bought for each named user, which means that only that specific employee can access the system with his/her login and password. This model is ideal for companies with only one work journey per day and have little variation in the daily number of employees.

Machine

this license can be bought for each machine, in other words, more than one employee can access the system from the same hardware. It is ideal for organizations that have around the clock operations and uses the same machine for different users.

  • “Nós escolhemos o Azure e a Inove porque internamente não tínhamos o know-how para gerenciar e oferecer suporte para esse tipo de tecnologia e não queríamos aumentar nossos custos com a contratação de profissionais para as equipes das subsidiárias. Neste sentido, a infraestrutura na nuvem oferece um serviço completo, sempre atualizado, sem necessidade de fazer previsões sobre o licenciamento ou atualizações de infraestrutura. Outro destaque é que a Inove nos ajudou não só com o apoio do Dynamics AX no Brasil, mas também na previsão dos valores que precisamos investir em Azure e na sua gestão. A Inove é reconhecida pelo Microsoft pela expertise em conhecer como duas soluções se complementam.”
