SaaSplaza will implement and manage the Dynamics AX on Azure workloads, connecting Flight Centre staff around the world with a travel application based on Microsoft Dynamics AX.

Flight Centre Group CIO Peter Wataman explains why they chose SaaSplaza Azure Services:

“SaaSplaza was selected to provide their AX Management Services to Flight Centre for three main reasons. They have extensive knowledge of delivering Dynamics on Azure, proven experience in managing Dynamics cloud AX, and they are very comfortable working in collaboration with Dynamics ISVs to manage integrated solutions. For a project of this scale and complexity we need these skills and experience.”

Flight Centre Travel Group, headquartered in Brisbane, Australia, is one of the largest Travel Agency networks in the world. They operate more than 1500 stores worldwide, in more than a dozen countries, with annual revenues of more than USD $13 billion.

The diversity of their geographic requirements means the company will utilise SaaSplaza Azure Services from multiple Azure locations, including Asia, Australia, the United States and Europe.

Christian Pedersen, Vice President of Microsoft Dynamics Product and Platform Marketing, welcomed the decision by Flight Centre to work with SaaSplaza for their AX on Azure services.

“SaaSplaza continue to lead the way in innovation and service delivery for Microsoft Dynamics AX in the Cloud. They combine functional knowledge and expertise in cloud delivery of AX on Microsoft Azure, Hybrid and Private Clouds. With SaaSplaza, you get complete managed services for Cloud AX and the experience that delivers complex, integrated AX projects for enterprise customers across the globe.”

Microsoft Dynamics AX customers now have a more straightforward choice between choosing Azure or an on-premise solution. They can thoroughly test and move their production ERP workloads to Azure with confidence and peace of mind, and take advantage of any Azure consumption benefits that may be part of their licensing agreements.

SaaSplaza CEO Berend-Jan van Maanen explains that flexibility is also a key feature of SaaSplaza’s Azure services.

“We can provide the Azure solution and integrated Dynamics services together, or integrate our Dynamics Services for Enterprise customers with their own Azure solution.”
