    Is this true for AX 2009 or only AX 2012?  

    "Trickle data from Microsoft Dynamics AX and Microsoft Dynamics NAV into Management Reporter data mart for increased performance"

    This feature is only for Dynamics AX 2012. We did also make engine-based performance enhancements that should benefit all Management Reporter users.
