I am interested in trying to understand the desired approach in trying to integrate a 3rd party POS system with AX 2012 R2 Retail HQ.


My questions would be:

  • What would be the desired / preferred / followed approach?
    • E.g. is getting the data into AX Store DB the desired approach and using std back end functionality from there?
    • E.g. is building bespoke AIF services the way to go?
  • Based on the approach?
      • Would direct sql data injection be the method? (SSIS into AX Retail Store DB)
      • Would using a API to build records in the AX Retail Store DB be a method?
      • Would building AIF ports be the way to go?


Other information:

  • 100+ stores that need to be integrated
  • Online store too
