Data Integration for Dynamics 365 F&SCM

Meet any Dynamics 365 integration requirement with our highly configurable, embedded Data Integration Solution that enables D365 business users to create, monitor, and manage system-to-system integrations by themselves, without any development. Not only does this advanced solution help you simplify complex integrations in D365 but also allows you to transform raw data into meaningful business insights through no-code data preparation and extraction.

When business systems are isolated, you miss the big picture. With our Data Integration Solution, ensure that your application landscape is seamlessly connected with your Dynamics 365 F&SCM ERP in a fast, efficient, and secure way. Our point-and-click, model-driven solution helps you combine data across different sources, making it easy for business users to extract quality data for faster analytics. Moreover, the solution helps you perform unlimited integrations simultaneously, avoid customizations, resolve integration errors, and ensure that your Dynamics 365 integrations run at peak efficiency with minimal downtime.

Our solution comes with out-of-the-box connectors and is meticulously designed to support any integration scenario with any ISV solution, external application, legacy system, or with the cloud— no matter how complex.

Key Challenges

Increased cost of integration projects
Although your IT team may be able to achieve simple, standard integrations in Dynamics 365, you may need to hire developers to perform complex integrations (such as connecting to DMF, OData, Webservices, or to the Azure cloud), pushing up the costs for your integration project.
Relying too much on development
With over 1500 data entities or integration templates to choose from in Microsoft, it may not be easy to do a Dynamics 365 integration without coding. You will also need developers if you decide to do customizations or integrate with another ISV solution.
No direct access to production data
Microsoft does not allow direct access to production data due to security constraints. This makes it difficult for business users to prepare, extract, and export data into their database. They also have limited control over the quality of the data being exported.

Advanced data manipulation

Data Integration Solution allows for data transformations, default values, and conversions. You can do form mapping or conditional mapping for advanced data manipulation to help you deal with the complexities of the D365 F&SCM data model. The form mapping function helps you select the exact corresponding field on a form for the original input fields so that you can map to the database yourself.

Multiple format support

Data Integration Solution supports several document types, message protocols, data movement methods, and multiple document formats, including Delimiter-based (CSV), flat file, fixed text, ODBC using the Azure Service Bus, MS Excel, MS Word, EDI, and XML file (with XSD or XSLT). Additionally, custom formats can be used to meet specific formats.

Timely error resolutions

Data Integration Solution helps you debug your Dynamics 365 data integrations by helping you navigate to the failed integrations quickly with the failure URL at hand and with the help of alerts sent within Teams. You can also star key integrations, group, slice and dice integration errors by project, application, or company for faster error resolution.

Frequently asked questions

Can't find what you're looking for?
How can you support us in educating our team to make use of Data Integration Solution?

We provide multiple ways for you to train and make the best of Data Integration Solution – from 1-2 min on-demand training videos to virtual and/or in-person trainings spanning a full day – where we dive deeper into your use cases and tailor the trainings to your specific needs. We also provide implementation support for the product.

Does the solution undergo regular software/application updates?

Yes. STAEDEAN's solutions follow the quarterly release schedule and are delivered free of cost to our customers. And since Data Integration Solution is embedded within Dynamics 365, every time Microsoft upgrades, our solution is also thoroughly tested for every upgrade.

Is there a maximum number of integrations that can be done with your solution?

No limits! You can set up both synchronous and asynchronous integrations per legal entity, without any limits, and without having to deploy them one after the other.

What kind of capabilities should a person have in order to use Data Integration Solution?

Nothing specific. Knowledge of Dynamics 365 F&SCM is sufficient to help you map the integration specifications. Knowledge of which connector types to choose while setting up an integration helps as well. Overall, a familiarity with the systems landscape and integration methods helps – no hard skills required, otherwise.

We have used Microsoft data entities in the past. Can we still use them if we migrate to Data Integration Solution?
Yes! Our product is compatible with Microsoft’s data entities—therefore, you don't need to redo any of your past work.
Why should I consider Data Integration Solution when Microsoft offers the Data Management Framework (DMF) for data mapping?
Although DMF facilitates data validation and mapping within Dynamics 365, it can be quite complex to do it without the help of a developer. Data Integration Solution offers a more flexible and user-friendly approach, allowing configurations of data selections, mapping data fields, and managing multiple data scenarios through simple configuration. The solution’s advanced data manipulation capability helps in integrating various applications easily within D365 as compared to DMF.
Do we need to subscribe to any additional Azure components if we want to use the solution’s data preparation and extraction capabilities?
You will need Azure SQL database: Bring Your Own Database (BYOD) and Microsoft D365 F&SCM licenses to use the solution’s data preparation and extraction features.
