Difference Between Morphx and Intellimorph in Dynamics AX 2012

There are two important concepts of Dynamics AX:MorphX IDE and Intellisense.

If you want to make changes to the application you will need MorphX IDE for building, modifying tables. By simply drag and drop you can create Forms and menus. It saves your extra coding effort.  You will only need a bit of coding for advanced business logic; X++ is the programming language that is supported by MorphX IDE.

IntelliMorph is the technology that saves the design time of the developer. A  Developer only has to focus on structure not the layout. In figure bellow you can see how this feature works. Right click the workers grid and click personalize. Here you can see the user has the option to personalize the layout at run time. Developer don’t have to specify the location of the fields or the layout of the form.

intelliMorph is the Runtime Environment embedded in Microsoft Dynamics AX, that draws menus, forms, and reports for Windows- and Web-clients with the correct contents, size, and layout.

For example: 
1. When you use field groups, IntelliMorph can automatically update the layout of all related forms and reports whenever a modification is made to the field groups. If you create new forms or reports based on the field groups defined in the standard tables, you will not have to manually update the custom object when the standard tables are modified by an upgrade. 
2. When you create reports, it is recommended that you use the Auto design. When you use the Auto Design the IntelliMorph technology automatically adjusts the layout in your reports.
