Simply jump for (Scribe) AX-CRM integration

At the end of the month Scribe is releasing, yes it is still  May 31st here, the new integration between CRM 2011 and AX 2012.

Most interesting change from technical point of view that for the integration the web services adapter is used and primary keys are stored in source and target system.

The web service adapter is one of the very interesting and useful integration options of Scribe Insight. It gives you many opportunities to integrate with all kind of other application.

Of course we like to have integration 'out of the box' and we know that could be hard to achieve, I won't mention Microsoft Connectors here ;-)

Luckily, Jumpstart makes it easy to set up your basic integration(s). In a nutshell the solutions comes with  the components for CRM 2011, AX 2012 and Scribe Insight to setup your integration. Next you have to do a little configuration and you up and running.

By the way you need the new version 7.5.1, which is also released today and offers for example enhanced web service adapter functionality. Also supporting MS SQL 2012.


AX-CRM Jumpstart

The principle for integration is similar to other integration you can achieve with Scribe Insight. The core is Microsoft Message Queue. The changes from source system are published to the queue processed by Scribe Insight and send to your target system and vice versa.

Of course, every integration is custom and sometimes you lucky you get away with standard integration. Nevertheless this is a great step to get your basic integration up and running and take it beyond!

Happy Jumping.... you can start NOW!
