    Integration

    Over the years ERP system vendors have been working hard on improving their systems to provide a complete coverage of business processes. In real life, however, companies are still using diverse systems to support their daily business because either some areas are not covered, or dedicated software provides much better functionalities for the area. Also, companies are part of a wider business ecosystem and they need to interact with their customers, vendors, employees and with the government.

    In order to operate efficiently, businesses need to integrate their ERP systems with their internal systems and their partner’s external systems. There are lots of protocols and standards that tend to make integration easier, however, companies still struggle with implementing these integrations. Complexity comes from the diverse technologies, from the various age of the systems, from the diverse data models and from the diverse business processes.

    To implement efficient integration you need reliable and flexible technology to support communication and you need experts who not only master technology but understand your business and can design integration that fits seamlessly your processes.


     

    Interface development

    We believe that interface development is primarily not a technical task, but a business project that requires a deep understanding of the processes on both sides of the interface.  In the last 15 years, we have designed, developed and implemented hundreds of interfaces, integrated various versions of Dynamics AX (from Axapta to D365) to several systems. We found that implementing interfaces may dramatically change your ERP experience, they help automate and boost your processes, eliminate human errors and increase user satisfaction.

    Migration / DMF / migration methodology

    According to our experience, data migration is the black sheep of most ERP implementations (probably with security setup). As data is owned by the customer and in most cases it shall be gathered from several sources and it requires cleansing and transformation, Dynamics AX (D365) partners tend to exclude this task from the vendor’s scope and leave it as customer’s responsibility. Because of that, it often doesn’t get required attention on time, customers don’t get sufficient support from the vendors and data migration becomes one of the most common causes of project delay and customer frustration.

    We know how data migration can be handled better. We have built our data migration methodology that helps identify all data migration elements, supports tracking data preparation and load process, controls data load before and during the cutover period. We use standard pre-defined templates to load data. These templates can be easily extended to suit customizations of your system.

    We are happy to help you, even if you are in the middle of your implementation.

    Data extract with ETL tools

    Dynamics AX has a solid and flexible integration framework that enables business logic controlled data extract from the system. However, in some special cases, performance consideration requires other solution that works faster and doesn’t generate huge load on the AOS’s.

    For these situations we recommend our data extract tool that generates extracts from the Dynamics AX database in any format (csv, txt, xls, xml, json, database,…) by using standard Microsoft ETL tools.

    Microsoft Flow

    Work less, do more. Create automated workflows between your favorite apps and services to get notifications, synchronize files, collect data, and more. Turn repetitive tasks into multistep workflows. For example, with a few clicks capture tweets and add them as leads in Dynamics 365, subscribers in Mailchimp.
