01 Oct Business Intelligence for Dynamics delivers perfect management information
Business Intelligence has everything to do with insights. Every role inside an organization needs it. In the time Hillstar is providing that insight to organizations, we are often surprised about the trouble many companies have just to analyze data flexibly. How is that possible?
Datamodels are hard to fathom. It often varies from case to case which information or insight is needed. The standard report generally is taken from the ERP system or taken out of the ERP to Excel through a link .
Simply make pivot tables in Excel that allow you to view transverse sections in your data. That is exactly what is offered by BI4Dynamics.
Our specialisation is in structuring data from Microsoft Dynamics. Maybe you use AX (AX2009 or AX2012) as ERP-system in support of the daily operation. Employees enter data in the system that allows others to do their jobs aswel. A lot of data is generated. Now the organization can give direction on that data and analyze. That is where it gets hard. Luckily there is a solution by using BI4Dynamics. BI4Dynamics is a so called Datawarehouse solution build within the Microsoft tools of SQL (for example SQL 2008 or SQL 2012). A datawarehouse is a separate database where data from Microsoft Dynamics AX is included, structured, supplemented and offered to reporting solutions like Excel or Sharepoint.
You might not want to know how the software works, but you want to give direction to your organization or process. You need an aid that tells you how your company is doing. Simply make a pivot table in Excel that allows you to make cross sections of your data. That is exactly what is offered by BI4Dynamics. Hillstar is very excited about the product and helps organizations with a standard structure of reporting. Here the 80/20 rule of course applies. Many reports in the area of inventory, sales and financial are the same at the average organization. The flexibility of the solution comes up if you want to make adjustments. That flexibility is offered. The investment required is also not so high. It just depends on how much you want to do. Start once again with the basics and be surprised by the possibilities!
