When people talk about data integration, they’re discussing a process in which disparate programs are synchronized in a way that allows them to pool their data into a single point of truth from which an organization’s team members can operate. \
Data integration eliminates double data entry (employees only have to enter information into Salesforce, for example, and it will automatically be updated accordingly in Dynamics AX).
How Can Dynamics AX-Salesforce Integration Change My Business for the Better?
When businesses opt to integrate their Dynamics AX legacy system with their CRM (Salesforce, for example), the end result is a 360-degree view of customers and optimized business intelligence leading to the most relevant and up-to-date analytics.
Most organizations don’t suffer from a lack of data–if anything, they’re drowning under piles of it–some of it relevant, some of it less so–and find themselves in dire need of organizational assistance. Contemporary organizations now handle data streams coming in from their CRM, ERP, partner organizations, marketing operations, and web traffic, to name a small handful of sources.
The goal of data integration is efficiency and standardization–a lifesaver when it comes to managing all the incoming and outgoing streams of information. Without quality data integration, employees may find themselves manually double-entering relevant customer information into both Dynamics AX and Salesforce, having to reformat data by hand–and perhaps even having to hand-analyze data! It’s a recipe for human error. Eliminating these time-consuming (and costly!) steps and leaving the number-crunching to computers is an excellent way to increase operating speed and employee efficiency (and happiness!).
Data Integration Challenges
Data integration projects are not always the most straightforward. Every system has its unique quirks and integration needs, and that includes industry titans like Dynamics AX and Salesforce. Some companies find themselves hindered from the get-go, unsure of what kinds of data they want to focus on, or what is crucial for them to collect and what can safely be ignored, and some may not even know what exactly certain data will be put to use for, or how it’s going to be analyzed. These are all important questions to consider before embarking on your data integration project.
Not only that, but AX–being a legacy system–can be difficult for certain integration companies to work with, on account of such quirks as not making use of time-stamps, which have become a common feature of most contemporary ERP software (but are commonly missing from older ones).
Even when a data integration project is fully completed, your employees will bear partial responsibility for handling and maintaining the software to your organization’s standards, so that the software can work for you the way it is designed to.
