The objective is to discuss Microsoft Dynamics AX Ecommerce solution architecture and components.

Microsoft Dynamics Ecommerce Solution Architecture

Microsoft Dynamics Ecommerce solution consists of  the following components, which are distributed across multiple computers and locations:

The commerce runtime (CRT) component must be installed on SharePoint 2013. It includes a specially configured CRT database that stores data from the web storefront and shares it with Microsoft Dynamics AX in the head office regularly. Data replication helps make sure critical updates are made across the organization, including sales order payments, gift cards usage, and loyalty program. CRT provides a set of assemblies that connect to CRT database.

The online storefront is fully search driven, and it provides online store experience on multiple devices such as PCs, tablets, and mobile phones.
