Hi,

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
Thanks

I think better option would be to use AIF and take required data into AX HQ.

Using the AIF services to integrate 3rd party POS to AX is the most optimum solution.

Don't ever try direct injection of data to sql, you may miss on some shared tables.
