GET OPTIMAL PERFORMANCE FROM AX DURING PEAK

In the run up to the peak trading time of the year, it’s never too early to get your systems ready, particularly if you’re in the Retail Sector. If you are running Microsoft Dynamics AX then we’ve got some tips to help you make sure that you are on top of your systems through this critical period.

Slow or inefficient systems can mean lost trade, accelerated pressure on the workforce or even worse, brand damage. Every week during the Peak Period we’ll be bringing you valuable hints as to how you can get the most from Microsoft Dynamics AX, so let’s get started, not a moment to lose as you need to start tracking now to see the rise in pressure over the coming months.

First of all you need to install the Performance Analyzer for Microsoft Dynamics (DynamicsPerf 2.0).

We would suggest you install this on a separate SQL instance and then link to your production server, however this can be run directly on the production instance if needed.

Once you have this setup and running, you will be able to gain value after only a few hours of monitoring, however, we suggest leaving it for a few days to gather activity representative of normal trading peaks and troughs.

Once you’ve got some data from the analyser you can see if there’s any gaps, forewarned is forearmed.

We wish all retailers a profitable and issue free Christmas trading period but if you come across any issues and don’t have the time, resources of expertise to deal with them and need a bit of help, at AgileCadence we can monitor, maintain and assist through the high-pressure period. If you prefer we can also help guide you, to give your in-house team a bit of support over the next 2 months .
