Microsoft's Vedbæk unit turns into a business & development company  

Microsoft Business Solution based in Vedbæk north of Copenhagen has become a business & development unit following a reorganisation

Microsoft Business Solution based in Vedbæk north of Copenhagen, has become a pure development unit following a reorganisation. In the fiscal year 2003/04, several staff were moved to other Microsoft companies in connection with sale of foreign subsidiaries, while the number of software developers in Vedbæk increased from 340 to 354.


In Microsoft Business Solutions' 2003/04 annual report, the management states that the Vedbæk unit will focus on business and development activities for Microsoft Corporation in 2004/05. Microsoft Business Solutions develops Axapta, Navision, C5 and XAL. In addition, the company has a development team working on the next generation of Supply Chain Management based on RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) chips in collaboration with KiMs, a Danish based chip company. The news is reported by business newspaper Erhvervsbladet.


The Vedbæk facility is Microsoft's largest development centre outside the Seattle HQ. It was created after the IT giant acquired the Danish company Navision in 2002 for USD 1.76 billion (approx. DKK 11 billion), the second most expensive acquisition in Microsoft's history up to that time.
