Data Entities and BYOD: The Essential Guide for Finance and Accounting


Microsoft has made some very important technical changes to the way data are accessed for reports in Microsoft Dynamics 365 Finance & Supply Chain Management (D365 F&SCM). If you’re currently running D365 F&SCM as your ERP system, or if you are considering a migration to it soon, you’ll need to understand a few technical topics such as data entities, Azure Data Lakes, and “bring your own database” (BYOD).

This guide explains these technical changes in terms that virtually anyone can understand, even if you don’t have a detailed understanding of technical topics. We’ll explain why Microsoft has shifted its direction for financial and operational reporting in D365 F&SCM and what alternatives are available to businesses planning to upgrade from Microsoft Dynamics AX. We’ll outline some of the benefits of an alternate approach, including reduced costs, risks, and disruptions associated with your migration to D365 F&SCM.
