In 2004, Delaware Consulting decided to build a Microsoft Dynamics AX offering, next to the existing SAP practice. The past 10 years have been a wonderful journey. Along the way, we found the definition of 3 key pillars to be the foundation of durable growth: team & culture, projects and vision. In this interview, Jan De Bock, manager in the Microsoft AX team, talks in depth about our view on the third pillar: vision.
Arteveldehogeschool (AHS) is Flanders’ second largest university college with more than 12000 registrations. They offer state-of-the-art degree programs which are considered being an educational reference in Flanders. AHS is situated in Ghent, the main Belgian student city. Due to the expansion of student enrolments, accompanied with a lagging government funding, it has become a challenge to work increasingly cost-efficient while preserving educational excellence and student support. At the same time a fast evolution of the digital environment has made it important to invest in infrastructure and in IT projects. In this context the implementation of Microsoft Dynamics AX was an important step forward.
In 2004, Delaware Consulting launched its Microsoft Dynamics AX offering. Today, the Microsoft AX Team is a young and dynamic group, coached by experienced consultants. The team exudes the unique culture of Delaware Consulting.
See for yourself!
Maybe, you have everything to become our next top consultant!
In 2004, Delaware Consulting decided to build a Microsoft Dynamics AX offering, next to the existing SAP practice. Today, we have come a far way. The Microsoft AX team adds up to 40 consultants, including 6 young graduates who started in September 2014. They even succeeded in facilitating 8 go-lives in the month of January 2014.
The journey was not always easy. There were highs and lows. Along the way we had to question and redefine ourselves. This resulted in the evolution of three key pillars: team & culture, projects and vision.
Never tell your client that his requirements are more or less the same as those of everyone else. Every customer is unique. Special. But what about his employees’ holiday requests, expenses and HR hiring process? In most cases, this is not part of the core business of your customer. So, how should you deal with it?

In the product life cycle of MS Dynamics AX we get a completely new version of the software every 3 to 4 years, like AX3.0, 4.0, 2009 and 2012. Between these major releases, Microsoft updates the software with minor ones (R1, R2, and R3) every year. The software itself does not really change in those minor releases. You just get a lot of bug fixes and some small new functionalities. At least, that was the case until now.
When running a business, efficiency, proactivity and flexibility are key. This applies to Large Enterprises but even more to Small and Medium Companies (SMEs). Decision makers need accurate data to steer their company. They require it fast, and in a usable, pragmatic way.
World-class ERP systems like Microsoft Dynamics AX and SAP Business All-in-One are now affordable and usable for SMEs. If compared correctly, these ERP solutions offer a lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) than outdated tailor-made systems (e.g. developments on AS400).

2013 has been quite a successful year for Office 365. The platform didn’t only receive the major upgrade from SharePoint 2010 to 2013. It also got lots of other smaller updates as well. I even presume that SharePoint 2013 was the last major update of the Office 365 platform we will ever experience. From this year onwards, Office 365 receives a constant flow of new features and patches, meaning that updates happen more gradually.
