Seeing is believing – AX 2012 Uninstalling the Upgrade model

This short recording shows an alternative appliance of models. If you have already upgraded, wouldn't it be nice to not see all the "DEL_" tables, fields and indexes in the AOT? With models you can do exactly that. All the upgrade-only artifacts are stored in a separate model, and you can simply uninstall it to rid your system of the several thousand elements you really don't care about (anymore).

At the Dynamics AX 2011 Technical Conference I was asked in the hallway: "Was it a boy or girl?" I guess I look pretty perplexed, so the follow up was: "Since your blog has been quiet most of the fall, I assumed you were on paternity leave." It is true that I haven't blogged much in the fall of 2010, it is also true that I have been tending to my baby - but it was neither a boy nor a girl. It was Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012. The feature showcased in this video is what I spent most of my awake time on in October and November 2010.
