Simon Buxton

Simon Buxton has worked with Dynamics 365 for Operations since its earliest incarnations, starting out as a consultant and developer in early 1999 when Dynamics 365 for Operations was known as Damgaard Axapta 1.5. He quickly became a team leader at Columbus IT Partners and carried out one of the first Axapta implementations in the 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, ranging from the UK, to Bahrain, to the USA. These projects include developing solutions for third-party logistics, multichannel retail, and eventually developing an animal feed vertical, as well as integrating Dynamics 365 for Operations into production control systems, government gateways, and e-commerce solutions, among others. Now, working with Binary Consultants, he was part of a team that implemented the first Dynamics 365 for Operations implementation with support from Microsoft as part of the Community Technical Preview program (CTP). The knowledge gained as part of this process led to the creation of this book.

Simon has also worked on Mastering Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R3 Programming and Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R2 Administration Cookbook.
