Modern Reporting for Microsoft Dynamics AX, Part I: Elements of an Advanced Reporting Strategy

Having been in this industry for a long time, it is amazing to me how we still have so much trouble getting information out of ERP systems. Maybe the methodology most of us use is outdated: The classical report writing that most of us can relate to is as difficult now as it was 30 years ago. And it is outdated, as report writing tools have gotten more sophisticated as the databases themselves have become much more complex.

No matter, say ERP providers, because "With the advanced capabilities of this new ERP system, we have made it much easier to get data out of the system. So much so, that the average user can do this." How is that working out for you?
