Dynamics AX 업계에 종사하면서 SAP 시스템과의 차이점에 대해서 고민하지 않으면 안 될 것 같아, 외국 친구들 중에 나와 비슷한 고민을 하는 사람은 없을까 해서 Google 검색을 해봤다.

아래 답변 내용은 Dynamics User Group이라는곳에서 누군가 AX VS SAP? 이라는 질문에 답변을 단 내용을 원본 그대로 가져온 내용이며, 찾아본 내용 중 가장 괜찮은 답변 같아 이곳에 옯겨놨습니다.


My company left SAP R3 for AX 2009 since 2008, I would say SAP is good for large companies but doesn't fit to middle-sized and small companies.

In terms of integration and implemantation, SAP is really heavy. and rustic, works on HP UX for me with text administration console for the database. An advantage, SAP is very stable and in my case had a better SGBD (Oracle 10) than SQL Server 2005 with AX. An other advantage, the financial and accounting module is better in SAP, a lot of things are automated,

My personnal point of view about development : there's no possible comparison, SAP is a frozen environnment, extremely complicated even if you want to do small visual customization as change labels in forms. AX is very flexible,has a simple and efficient development interface, the X++ language is easy to learn ( most like C# and java) once you have a small development experience and if you have skilled developpers, you can do just about what you want.

In summary, AX is more flexible and you can customize yourself your environment and adapt the processes to your company activity. you can do much more by yourself than in SAP which oblige to deal with external services providers but is more stable and efficient on a few processes. the cost aspect depends on your retailor but SAP is expensive, much more than AX.

About careers, I'm located in the country-sided France, so it's complicated but in large cities like Paris, for example, there's a lot of AX opportunities
