Why Is It So Hard to Get My Microsoft Dynamics Data?
A common question among users of Microsoft Dynamics is: ‘I just bought a new and expensive ERP system from one of the most well-respected technology companies on the planet, shouldn't BI and Reporting capabilities come with it?'
Well, it does! In fact, Gartner ranks Microsoft as a strong leader among BI platforms. Even better, the solution that you now own is made up of tools that many in your company are already familiar with.
Microsoft's approach to providing a robust BI solution to its customers is to leverage the already widely-used platform components that most companies already own and use on a daily basis - namely Office (Excel), SQL Server, Business Intelligence Development Studio (BIDS) and SharePoint.
