Intelligent Data Management Framework For Microsoft Dynamics AX (Pre-Release)

The Intelligent Data Management Framework for Microsoft Dynamics® AX helps administrators optimize Dynamics AX database layout by intelligently monitoring index usage, index layout, fragmentation and query patterns thru indices. The framework allows reduction of the database size by purging transaction records from a set of related entities, while maintaining the consistency and integrity of production data. The Intelligent Data Management Framework provides customers and partners the ability to identify and discover related entities based on Microsoft Dynamics AX metadata and to determine the purging criteria for entities and transactions. The Intelligent Data Management Framework also analyzes the production database to determine current usage patterns and assesses the health of the Microsoft Dynamics AX application. This Framework is compatible with all supported versions of Dynamics AX (Axapta 3.0 SP6 with latest kernel, Dynamics AX 4.0 SP2, Dynamics AX 2009 SP1). Customers on an active maintenance plan can implement this framework to build an efficient data management solution for their implementation.

At RTM, this Framework will include “Archive to Offline” Instance Support.

You can download the framework from PartnerSource (requires PartnerSource login)
