Implementation of Dynamics AX For Revlon

Visionet Systems Inc. (VSI) is a trusted vendor that Revlon Inc. has been in business with for past 3 years now. Historically, VSI has provided services on SharePoint, Microsoft BI Technology stack as well as .Net Framework based applications. However, VSI’s current ongoing engagement with Revlon Inc. includes the configuration and customization support for its global initiative to replace legacy systems (including Oracle Financials and GEMMS) with MS Dynamics AX 2012 R2.

Data migration and integration between the legacy and AX 2012 for master and transactional data is being done by VSI through using SSIS which includes mapping and cleansing diverse data in cross geography and cross applications legacy system. Development for custom AIF services to meet the data integration, migration and cross platform/ cross application communication is the other activity that VSI has taken up in this implementation. VSI is developing custom AOT based SSRS reports as an extension to the out of the box available reporting functionality as dictated by strategic business need. VSI is also assisting Revlon in bridging the gap between out of the box AX setups & business processes through Form Customization and New Form Development in AOT.

VSI performs a number of cross functional activities, in addition to, other core responsibilities that include:

  • Functional testing to ensure the quality of all of the deliverables
  • Troubleshooting, diagnosis and resolution of all AX related issues Installation / configuration of AX environments
  • Functional & Technical Analysis for all development activities
  • DB Logging configuration, planned as well as need based (for troubleshooting assistance)
