Microsoft Dynamics is a line of enterprise resource planning (ERP) and customer relationship management (CRM) software applications from Microsoft. The Microsoft Dynamics focus industries are retail, service, manufacturing, financial services, and the public sector. Microsoft Dynamics offers support for small, medium, and large businesses.
Locus has special extensions included out of the box that allow it easily test and validate Microsoft Dynamics implementations, reducing the time to regression test customizations and configurations.
Microsoft Dynamics AX (formerly Axapta) - multi-language, multi-currency enterprise resource planning (ERP) business software with global business management features for financial, human resources, and operations management as well as additional industry capabilities for retailers, professional service industries, financial service businesses, manufacturers, and public-sector organizations
Locus includes specialized libraries for testing Dynamics AX applications that are built-upon the standard Microsoft Windows UIAutomation library with special extensions for handling unique AX controls such as treeviews, the navigation explorer and the various grids used to edit data. In addition Locus can test the following extensions to Dynamics AX:
- Dynamics AX Management Reporter - Locus can test this extension using its Generic Windows library
- Dynamics AX Web Portals - Locus can test the various web portals using its web browser libraries.
Microsoft Dynamics CRM is a customer relationship management application from Microsoft, that provides sales, service, and marketing capabilities. Microsoft sells Microsoft Dynamics CRM separately from the ERP products. CRM is available either as on-premises software or as a software-as-a-service offering called "Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online".
Locus can be used to test installations of Dynamics CRM both on-premise and online.
Both versions of Dynamics CRM (server and online) are completely web-based and use a web browser to access the user interface. Therefore when recording a test using Locus, you use the same web browser libraries that you use to record other web tests:
• Most of the Dynamics CRM user interface will be tested using the standard browser library for your web browser of choice (e.g. Internet Explorer HTML, Firefox HTML, and Chrome HTML).
In addition, there are special controls inside CRM that Locus has specialized support for. For that reason you'll also see the DomDynamicsCrm library added to your test as well as the browser one. This DomDynamicsCrm library adds additional rules that identify certain CRM objects to make testing easier.
Microsoft has created a new cloud-based SaaS-only combined ERP/CRM solution called Microsoft Dynamics 365. This provides a new web-based version of Dynamics AX (renamed Dynamics 365 for Operations), combined with a new web based version of Dynamics NAV (called Dynamics 365 for Financials) and an updated Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online (called Dynamics 365 for Sales).
This new integrated, ERP/CRM is provided solely through Microsoft Azure and is completely web-based.
