Alfresco and Microsoft Dynamics AX Integration
We use Microsoft Dynamics AX 2009 and wanted to investigate the possibility of developing an integration of Alfresco and Microsoft Dynamics AX.
(We know integrations can be done using MOSS/WSS but are excited about the possibilities with Alfresco).
You know the architecture of Alfresco and Microsoft Dynamics AX so we require you to document the possibilities and potential issues.
You are only required to test and document the potential architecture not do an actual development.
NOTE: NO DEVELOPMENT IS REQUIRED UNTIL LATER PHASES. Your bid is only for a document to explain the possibilities of implementation.
In essence we require the following…
* Scan documents directly into Alfresco.
* Email documents to Alfresco.
* Attach/Upload documents to Alfresco.
* Replicate Vendor, Customer records into Alfresco so when a record is created in AX it is automatically created within Alfresco.
* Link documents from AX to Alfresco depository etc.
You also have an understanding of issues such as integration of Alfresco with Active Directory etc.
The above list is obviously not exhaustive but you get the idea of what we're trying to achieve.
You are only required to investigate the possibility. Of course you'll have access to your own Alfresco installation (community edition is sufficient) and also a MS Dynamics AX 2009 installation so do your own tests and see how the above can be achieved.
The development work will follow in the following phases.
Phase 1: Install and configure Alfresco.
Phase 2: Customise Alfresco to make it easy to use.
Phase 3: Develop integrations with AX.
Your bid is for an investigative report on how Alfresco can be integrated with MS Dynamics AX. Phase 1 and 2 do not require any AX work but Phase 3 will.
Your bid should explain what development experience you have with Alfresco and MS Dynamics AX.
PLEASE NOT BID UNLESS YOU KNOW ALFRESCO AND MS DYNAMICS AX 2009.
