Use Lifecycle Services to deploy Dynamics AX on Azure

For sure, gone are the days when having AX environment used to take days. If you already have investment in the cloud and planning to go with Dynamics AX, choosing Microsoft Azure should be a straight forward decision. With AX going cloud and Microsoft releasing next big version of AX exclusively on Azure (on-premise coming late in 2016), should indicate where things are heading in ERP world or in general with IT. AX is now also available as an Azure Marketplace offering, where partners can release their solutions as ready to go thing. Companies are now also moving from the initial cloud hesitation and adopting the elastic technology that helps scale with rapidly growing business requirements.

That said, let's see how to deploy Dynamics AX 2012 R3 workload on Microsoft Azure in less than 60 minutes.

Step 1)
Login to Lifecycle Services using your CustomerSource or PartnerSource account.
