Running a successful business depends on the ability to gain insight into business data and extract and present information in a meaningful way. A company’s employees need to be able to transform data into actionable insight no matter where they are located in the organization.
This white paper discusses how the business intelligence capabilities available with Microsoft Dynamics NAV can help people make informed decision-as a natural part of their everyday work experience.
Microsoft Dynamics provides business insight through the tools users already have on their desktop. Flexible and comprehensive reporting tools, simple business intelligence capabilities and a Microsoft SQL platform for data access provide the right fit for the needs of small and mid-sized companies.
To highlight how Microsoft Dynamics NAV business intelligence capabilities equip organizations to make smart decisions, we organize these capabilities around three core business needs:
Reporting. To keep business on track, it’s essential to monitor current activity and compare it to historical performance and plans. The user needs easy access to specific data related to their task or role, the ability to perform repetitive business processes and have formatted grouped data – all as part of the standard application and setup.
Charts and KPI’s. Monitoring organization performance and drilling into more detail when trends are spotted provides more insight into how the business is performing. The user needs access to simple, easily identifiable business drivers to see the organization at a glance.
Ad-hoc Query and Analysis. Robust analysis capabilities within an easy and familiar tool like Microsoft Office Excel enable the actionable insight required to change the direction of a negative trend or take advantage of a positive trend. To remain competitive, companies must be able to compare plans to actual resulats, analyze that information, make the necessary adjustments, and then take action to move forward. In this scenario, the user needs to address specific business questions and problems and perform data calculations
