In the previous article, BizTalk Application: Currency Exchange Rates, we took a look at the setup for sending data using AIF XML documents to AX. We can use the BizTalk adapter to retrieve data from Dynamics AX via this AIF module. This is done using the AIF Queue manager. Throughout Dynamics AX, there are Send electronically buttons that can allow you to push data into the AIF Queue with an Outbound direction. Similarly, asynchronous incoming messages have an Inbound direction parameter.
In this article by Carl Darski, author of Microsoft BizTalk 2010: Line of Business Systems Integration, we'll create a BizTalk application that retrieves messages from Dynamics AX 2009 via the AIF Queue.Read BizTalk Application: Dynamics AX Message Outflow in full
The best way to understand the behavior and setup required to use the Dynamics AX BizTalk adapter is to walk through a full example. A common requirement for many companies that use Dynamics AX is to populate the currency exchange rates. Typically, this needs to be daily when the closing rates are published. The Exchange Rates(General ledger | Setup Exchange rates) table in AX is not a shared table across companies, thus depending how your organization is set up; you may or may not need to populate the Exchange rate table using multiple companies with multiple rates.
In this article by Carl Darski, author of Microsoft BizTalk 2010: Line of Business Systems Integration, we'll create a BizTalk application to populate the exchange rates table.Read BizTalk Application: Currency Exchange Rates in full

Business change is a constant necessity as a result of increased competition, improved technology, and shifts in consumer patterns. As a result, an enterprise will reorganize, acquire other businesses, create new applications, and downsize others. Throughout these changes, companies are faced with the challenge of efficiently provisioning their resources in response to their business priorities. To deliver data where it is needed, when it is needed, requires sophisticated information integration technologies.
This article by Jason Williamson, co-author of Oracle Information Integration, Migration, and Consolidation, discusses the basic concepts of information integration and reviews historical approaches to information integration. We will compare data-level integration with process and application integration. This will provide some solid examples for real world decisions, when trying to understand information integration and how this relates to your business and technical initiatives.Read Getting Started with Oracle Information Integration in full

In early 2010, when you went to the Oracle Technology Network (OTN) website, it had just one link called Information Integration. This link led you to a simple web page that had information on Oracle-to-Oracle database-centric migration and integration tools such as SQL Loader, Data Pump, Oracle Streams, and Oracle Data Guard. The OTN website has been updated, but still lacks comprehensive coverage of the Oracle Information Integration stack. In this article by Tom Laszewski, co-author of Oracle Information Integration, Migration, and Consolidation, we will provide you with the relevant information, so that you can use the right Oracle Enterprise Information Integration (EII) or data migration product for your data migration, consolidation, and information integration projects.
This article covers the Oracle integration, migration, and consolidation products, tools and technologies in terms of the following taxonomies: data migration, physical federation, virtual federation. The focus of this article is to cover the great breadth and depth of Oracle products, not all the finer details.Read Oracle Tools and Products in full
