Microsoft (MSFT +0.6%) has bought partner Blue Horseshoe's transportation and warehousing software products, and plans to integrate them with the supply-chain management software found in its Dynamics AX ERP software line. Microsoft has made a string of acquisitions (I, II) to bolster its Dynamics business app lineup, which aims to give SMBs who don't need SAP and Oracle's top-of-the-line solutions relatively cheap alternatives. Dynamics posted double-digit Y/Y sales growth in the March quarter.
