3 Ways To Import Data Into Microsoft Dynamics GP – Integration Manager, eConnect & Web Services

A powerful capability of Microsoft Dynamics GP is the ability to integrate data from other sources into GP.   Microsoft offers a couple technology solutions; some ISVs have leveraged those to provide tools with more sophisticated front-ends.   Microsoft tools for importing data into GP include: the Integration Manager, eConnect, and Web Services.  The Integration Manager (IM) […]

IM is a graphical application and is designed to be easy to use. Programming skills are not required to define data integrations.\u00a0 IM might be considered a \u201cpower user\u201d tool (specifically when designing and mapping integrations), although any user can run integrations that have been defined.\u00a0\r\n\r\neConnect<\/a> is a set of files, tools, and services that allow applications to integrate with Microsoft Dynamics GP data. \u00a0eConnect contains a special set of SQL stored procedures that are installed in each GP company database. \u00a0These stored procedures enforce the business rules and logic in GP to ensure that only valid data is imported. \u00a0Other data integration options, such as Web Services for Microsoft Dynamics GP and Integration Manager, use eConnect to provide their core capabilities.\u00a0 Several standard programming interfaces are included with eConnect: eConnect .NET Assembly (the .NET interface used to interact with eConnect), BizTalk Adapter (the interface that allows eConnect to be accessed by Biz Talk), Message Queueing (MSMQ) (provides a loosely-coupled, message-based interface for eConnect), and SQL Stored Procedures (the stored procs defined by eConnect which can be accessed directly).\u00a0\r\n\r\nWeb Services<\/a> for Microsoft Dynamics GP provides a standard Web service interface to access data in GP. Web services use standard Internet transport protocols such as Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) and standard XML-based document formats such as Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP) to exchange information. ASP .NET is used as the foundation to implement the Web Services for Microsoft Dynamics GP. The GP Web services use eConnect to provide access to the GP data.\u00a0\r\n\r\nISVs such as Scribe Software and eOne Solutions have developed integration tools (Scribe and SmartConnect) that leverage eConnect and provide \u201cfriendlier\u201d interfaces and better error reporting (without coding) versus working directly with eConnect.\u00a0\r\n\r\nIf you\u2019re looking for specific Microsoft Dynamics GP<\/a> or CRM<\/a> information, you can also check out the resources on the Sherwood Systems website.<\/a> And if you\u2019re located in Arizona or New Mexico<\/a> area, contact Sherwood Systems for assistance in determining if a technology solution can help your organization better serve your business needs.\u00a0(877) 943-9696\r\n\r\nby Ed Bonaski, Sherwood Systems an Arizona Microsoft Dynamics GP Partner<\/a>","post_title":"3 Ways To Import Data Into Microsoft Dynamics GP - Integration Manager, eConnect & Web Services","post_excerpt":"","post_status":"publish","comment_status":"open","ping_status":"open","post_password":"","post_name":"3-ways-to-import-data-into-microsoft-dynamics-gp-integration-manager-econnect-web-services","to_ping":"","pinged":"","post_modified":"2010-02-23 17:41:26","post_modified_gmt":"2010-02-23 23:41:26","post_content_filtered":"","post_parent":0,"guid":"http:\/\/www.erpsoftwareblog.com\/?p=3194","menu_order":0,"post_type":"post","post_mime_type":"","comment_count":"6","filter":"raw","post_category":"0","robotsmeta":"index,follow"}
