MSDW Podcast: Challenges & Solutions to Effective Business Intelligence in Microsoft Dynamics
25 years ago, we were hunting for data. Now the world has completely changed! The challenge today is getting insights from that data and business intelligence in Microsoft Dynamics
“ERP systems like Microsoft Dynamics NAV & AX, Dynamics 365 Business Central and F&O produce as much data as you need in multiple shifts and falls. But turning that raw data into insights has always been a challenge.” – Dr. Vijay Jog, Founder, CRGroup, and President of Global Business Applications, Quisitive
Microsoft offers its Dynamics ERP customers various ways to get started with analyzing business data. Still, the BI and analytics landscape continues to evolve as data growth accelerates and industry demands change.
In this podcast, Dr. Vijay Jog catches up with MSDynamicsWorld to discuss the BI and reporting themes influencing today’s Dynamics space.
Expectations are changing for many roles, Vijay believes. Accounting teams must provide better insight that leads to a proactive outlook. IT departments must gaining new skills in areas like data lakes, analytics, storage, and security. And teams continue to struggle with the perennial problem of data islands, Vijay says.
