What's in their Fixed Asset Ledger?

One of the good things about Dynamics-Ax is that almost everything can be uploaded. When we implement fixed asset, we can get a fixed assets list from the client and upload it.

What do we normally see on the fixed asset list? Usually I see machineries, computer equipments, buildings, land, and of course the boss's Merc S350 which is in everybody's way when walking in and out of the main entrance. Although your boss may say you are the most important asset of the company, but he always forget to put your name next to his S350 in the asset list.

I saw this link the other day: http://download.microsoft.com/documents/customerevidence/25929_Real_Madrid_Case_Study_Final.doc

It seems the world's biggest football club Real Madrid is an Axapta user. I wonder what's in their fixed asset list. Do you think they put Raul, Ruud van Nistelrooy, Arjen Robben in their fixed asset ledger? They spent €18 million on van Nistelrooy, €36.55 to buy Robben. All these money should be in their fixed asset right?

I wonder how their implementation went. Imagine their project kick off meeting, they can really do a kick off by asking one of their striker to score a goal or something. A reference site visit there would be fun. May be check out their fixed assets, do a fixed asset count.

Businesses are more and more concerned about business data protection. Network security, at the perimeter, is not a totally solved problem, but there is a community consensus among IT security professionals that the big vulnerability lies at the business data level.
