Standard, Custom, or Third Party Reporting: For Microsoft Dynamics AX Customers, Choosing the Right BI Balance is Key to User Adoption, IT Efficiency

Out of the box, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2009 and 2012 come with hundreds of standard reports, but customers commonly report low utilization of many of these, such as AX users at a recent AXUG event. The reasons for the low usage vary from lack of awareness to a lack of planning and adoption efforts to a lack of AX developers to customize standard reports to the simple need for more sophisticated reporting.

When it comes to enhancing business intelligence (BI) reporting, companies routinely turn to options including SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS) and third party BI tools to deliver the remaining financial and operational reports that their users require.
