Simon Buxton has worked with Dynamics AX since its earliest incarnations, starting out as a consultant and developer in early 1999 when Dynamics AX was known as Damgaard Axapta 1.5.
He quickly became a team leader at Columbus IT Partners, and carried out one of the first AX implementations in UK before joining a new reseller, Sense Enterprise Solutions, as its Technical Director. Sense Enterprise Solutions enjoyed a global reach through the AxPact alliance, where Simon was placed as AxPact's Technical Lead. Simon played a major role in growing the company into a successful Microsoft partner and was the Technical Lead on a number of highly challenging technical projects around the world—from UK to Bahrain to USA. These projects include developing solutions for third-party logistics, multichannel retail, and eventually developing an animal feed vertical as well as integrating Dynamics AX into production control systems, government gateways, and e-commerce solutions among others.
Sense Enterprise Solutions was sold to a major PLC, and since then Simon has teamed up with Binary Consultants as their Technical Architect, where he works with some of the most technically able AX and Microsoft .NET professionals in Europe. Binary Consultants are involved in the implementation, upgrades, and support of Microsoft Dynamics AX, and the development of add-ons for AX 2012 (under the name Axponents) and setting up vertical solutions for the production of animal feed.
Simon has been a reviewer on Implementing Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 with Sure Step 2012, which was published in March 2013.
