Dynamics AX vs Dynamics CRM - Career Prospects (Technical)

Hello everyone,

I am very much interested in steering my career towards Microsoft Dynamics and I would like to understand/know about the career prospects of Dynamics Ax vs Dynamics Crm.

I am working as a software development specialist in Dubai. I have very good and strong experience in application development in .Net technologies. Recently my team has developed and implemented a brand new Financial Management and Human Capital Management system for our organization consisting of 8 different companies. During the development phase of our application, I have also gained lots of valuable functional knowledge about accounting/financial/sales/purchase/Banking/Hr processes and activities and it motivates me to steer my career towards more advanced technologies like ERP & CRM.

I am interested in becoming technical consultant on Microsoft Dynamics (either AX or CRM). I know that AX is more advanced and vast system compared to CRM and they both cater to two different needs of any organization. But since my past development experience relates to both the systems, I am little confused as to which to learn.

So before embarking on the learning journey, I would like to know how much time (rough estimate) needs to be invested in learning development on both the platforms and what career prospects they both offer worldwide.

I would be very thankful if I could get some information on this topic and it would really help me in moving in a right direction.

Any valuable feedback/suggestion will be highly appreciated.


Best Regards,
Sohail Hashmi.
