Dynamics AX EDI, Dynamics ERP Integration, Dynamics 365, EDI for Dynamics 365


Microsoft Dynamics AX and Dynamics 365 customers have options when it comes to EDI or XML integration solutions, but without the right preparation and expertise, the effort can be riddled with expensive and complicated errors that could have been easily avoided.  

Understand the right questions to ask to make sure you're heading down the best integration path for your company. 

  • Should you customize Dynamics AX/365 or embed custom code to handle your requirements? 
  • Do prepackaged external applications work?
  • Is a SaaS or an on-premise solution a better way to go?  Can you have both?
  • Do you really have to pay document fees?
  • How do Dynamics updates impact your EDI process?

We'll cover these critical questions and more in this informative session. Come away from the event with information that can turn EDI and eCommerce into a strategic advantage at your organization.

You don't want to miss the upcoming webinar with MSDynamicsWorld.com, "EDI Integration Best Practices for Dynamics AX/365 for Operations," on Thursday, May 4th at 11:00AM Eastern.

The continuing growth of Regal Cinemas theater network caused Regal to transition away from their existing purchasing system and implement MIcrosoft Dynamics AX for Financials. At that time, the company acknowledged that their homegrown EDI solution wouldn't be able to scale with them and that they needed a comprehensive EDI solution that worked well with their Dynamics AX implementation.  By having the right technology in place, Regal Cinemas could ensure customers get their complete movie experience, seamlessly.

Read how Regal Cinemas is moving forward with EDI for Microsoft Dynamics AX to support the purchasing and receiving logistics necessary to run its network of over 600 theaters and how they plan to utilize EDI for Dynamics 365.

If your company is considering an upgrade from Dynamics AX to Dynamics 365 and currently has external business integrations, understanding the new integration framework will be critical to your planning and success. While looking forward to the benefits that the feature-rich Dynamics 365 platform promises to deliver, the integration technologies that have been added and deprecated warrant an overall evaluation of your integration strategy.

In this white paper, we’ll discuss what these changes mean to your organization and what opportunities they open the door to for EDI integration with Dynamics 365. Specifically, we’ll take a look at the pros and cons of the most widely-used approaches to EDI, such as Value Added Networks (VAN), the use of in-house development resources and contracting outsourced specialists.

As an alternative to these EDI approaches, we’ll discuss an integration option that does not modify the ERP, complementing the performance and functionality offered by the Dynamics 365 for Operations Platform.

change-948018_180.jpgDon't let the unveiling of Microsoft's messaging and go-to market strategies around Dynamics 365 Enterprise distract from the fact that this is really a very exciting time for the Microsoft Dynamics community.  From 1999 when it was known as Damgaard Axapta, we've watched the ERP evolve, with Microsoft continually building on its functional enhancements, UI and technology to the point that it became one of the fastest growing on-premise ERP solutions.

Today it stands among the most functional cloud-ready ERP solutions available. AX 7 (the ERP component of Dynamics 365 Enterprise) is undoubtedly the most ambitious transformation made to AX by Microsoft and arguably one of the most remarkable in the history of ERP development.

We're extremely excited to see the new integration framework in AX as it brings with it increased integration potential. To fully grasp the opportunities this transformation in integration offers, it's useful to understand AX Data Entities, the multiple types of entities and each of their purposes before undertaking an integration project...
