Business value

This feature facilitates seamless data exchange between Finance and Operations apps and Microsoft Dataverse.

Feature details

Get your Finance and Operations apps data in Microsoft Dataverse and keep it up to date.

We are making the dual-write framework a seamless experience by harmonizing the converging concepts between Finance and Operations apps and customer engagement apps in Dynamics 365. This allows businesses to exchange near real-time data in a synchronous, bidirectional fashion beyond application boundaries, giving users a unified experience.

Knowing every business is unique, we have made the dual-write framework extensible. This includes enabling custom entities, as well as extensions to existing entities, to fully use Microsoft Dataverse and surrounding tools for your most important business data.

In 2020 release wave 1, we delivered features that provide multimastering capabilities for customers, vendors, and products, along with an introduction of the company concept in Dataverse. We also covered end-to-end scenarios like on-demand pricing from Finance and Operations apps, integrated quotes, orders, invoices, and assets along with some reference data from finance, tax, accounts receivables, and accounts payables. In all, 112 entities are supported. For more information, go to Data in Common Data Service – phases 1 and 2.

These scenarios can be further enriched by customers and partners so that they extend across Finance and Operations apps and Dataverse.

The 2020 release wave 2 brings in the following capabilities. Once again, these capabilities will be delivered incrementally.
