The performance of the pricing engine is a critical factor to the overall performance of a retailer’s transaction workflows. The ability to find applicable discounts and compute prices in a performant manner can significantly contribute to revenue boost, profit margin growth, and an increase of customer lifetime value.
This feature optimizes the discount publishing and lookup procedures of the Dynamics 365 Commerce pricing engine by leveraging flattened data schema. With this feature enabled, discount data configured in Commerce headquarters is denormalized before it's sent to channel databases. The publishing of flattened discount data occurs automatically when a discount is enabled. This process helps achieve faster discount lookup and computation at runtime.
