When implementing Microsoft Business Central (BC) in your business, “the Goal” is to collect data more effectively and utilize it, right? Once you have your data in a centralized system, the next step is to arrange it into an easy way to visualize and harvest the main points. Using Microsoft BC with Power BI (Business Intelligence) will allow you to “bridge the gap between data and decision making”(Microsoft).
Gone are the days of managing spider webs of Excel spreadsheets or connecting with System Developers to create reports to access all of the disparate data in your organization’s data swamp. It used to be that you required a Developer to manually extract the data from the system in order to build the report. After that, you had to go back and forth with them on the design so that the organization could finally make “THE DECISION”. All those back and forth conversations usually came at a steep customization cost as well.
