The End of Dynamics AX Support- and What You Need To Know

Microsoft’s decision to end the support for legacy versions of MS Dynamics AX is a fact that many AX customers need to take serious note of. 

Microsoft has officially ceased supporting legacy versions of MS Dynamics AX including AX 2009, AX 2012, and AX 2012 R2. The AX 2012 R3 version’s security hotfixes will be stopped by the 10th of January in 2023. This means that there will be no further non-security hotfixes, no new localization/regulatory updates, and no future enhancements made to these versions.

What are your options? 


  • Continue with your current version of Dynamics AX  

Keeping the current version of Dynamics AX is still a possibility, however, you must remember that there will not be any mainstream support available for it or future hotfixes. 

  • Upgrade to Microsoft Dynamics 365 

You may be thinking that Dynamics 365 is not the answer for your business. You may feel like it’s too soon and you don’t have time to learn another software.  

Here’s the truth: no matter how you deal with your current situation, it will eventually lead you to Dynamics 365. Time is running low and considering upgrading to Dynamics 365 should be in your plans.
