Power Up Your Business Intelligence

Over the many years looking at the business analysis engagements, we have come to believe that business processes tend to evolve into a rather elegant and efficient dance of duties, although they may appear at first glance to be chaotic or irrational. After all, people want to get their work done as soon as possible, go home, and have dinner — so they hate wasting time.

When you study the workflow of a business process in sufficient depth, you tend to find that the devil is in the details and that what looked like sheer madness has a lot of meticulous methods baked into it. Users often have valid reasons for having to devise all the many steps they take. The lesson that’s learned is that users aren’t stupid — they’re intelligent. And, if you give them tools to use their intelligence themselves to gather information from the huge store of data lying dormant in your organization’s databases, they can become empowered to do a better job, by having better access to more instantaneous and accurate information.

Microsoft knew that it needed a user-friendly, cloud based, self-service ad hoc reporting tool that was geared toward end users rather than toward IT professionals. Microsoft Introduced Power BI. The BI stands for business intelligence. BI is a hot buzzword. When information technology professionals talk about business reporting, you hear the terms, data warehouse, data mart, big data, analytics, data mining, and key performance indicators.

The bottom line is that, as an end user, you need a way to create interactive reports without having to understand low-level computer programming. Wouldn’t it be great to be able to get access to data yourself, without having to be at the behest of your IT department (or, worse, expensive consultants) and present the data to yourself in easy-to-understand reports, displayed as dashboards of sortable, filterable lists and graphs on a web page, and be able to share your reports with others in your organization?

wouldn’t it be great if the data you can access is the data in your all-important ERP and CRM systems (in other words, your prospects, customers, vendors, employees, inventory, quotes, sales orders, invoices, purchase orders, projects, and so on)?

Well, with Microsoft Power BI integrated with Microsoft Dynamics 365, you can do just that. You can create your own self-service ad hoc reports such as Customer Engagement, Business Central, Finance and Operations, Retail, Talent, and more with Microsoft Dynamics 365 implementation.

 Furthermore, you can share your reports with others by creating a dashboard that is accessible on the Power BI website, or embedded into Dynamics 365 itself.
