How to get more data with Microsoft Dynamics and the Cloud?


More and more, we hear about organizations planning to automate or migrate old reports to the new Financial Report Writer. “Better enablement with visibility” is the number one need identified by businesspeople when it comes to how they get and use information. Visibility means getting the right information into the hands of the right people at the right time. The right information is relevant and accurate. The right people are those who know what to do next. The right time is whenever they need it. That’s the process of accounting software enablement.

Workflow automation helps you streamline key tasks and boost operational efficiencies while freeing your people to pursue their core competencies. Intuitive customization and seamless integration with your existing IT infrastructure help reduce total cost of ownership (TCO) and can extend the value of your IT investments. Microsoft Dynamics works the way you do.

What is the Intelligent Cloud?

While Business Central is a cloud-first service, we Microsoft now continues to ensure that customers that need to run their workloads on premises or on the intelligent edge connected to the cloud, can do so. With Dynamics 365 Business Central, once the customer signs up for the service in the cloud, they have the option to deploy it locally to their own choice of hardware. While they are running on their own hardware, the customer will have a tenant in the cloud, and the data from the customers hardware will be replicated to the cloud for Intelligent Cloud scenarios.

We welcome these customers running their workloads on Dynamics NAV, Dynamics GP, and Dynamics SL into Dynamics 365 Business Central. This is done through the same Intelligent Cloud/Intelligent Edge scenarios as for Business Central on premise. Each NAV, GP, or SL tenant will have a business Central cloud tenant they can synchronize their data to. When they use this, we invoke our Intelligent Cloud scenarios of Machines Learning, Power BI, Flow and others to drive suggested actions.  This helps the customer understand further the value of Business Central and over time, while Microsoft continues to support their NAV, GP, and SL deployments, these customers can choose when they want to transition to Dynamics 365 Business Central, as a perfect match for their businesses.  Dynamics GP and Dynamics SL will continue to receive product improvements and updates, but the most benefit to these customers comes from upgrading to Dynamics 365 Business Central.

Business processes are at the core of every business. Across the finance industry, businesses are looking to adapt their finances and business operations processes to the digital era, to secure and expand their businesses. This “digital transformation” requires a degree of business process agility – and unification across the business – not supported by the traditional “siloed” business management solutions approach of the past.

Dynamics 365 offers customers the flexibility to grow at their own pace and expand into additional capabilities with ease to run their entire business in the trusted Microsoft cloud. It helps organizations move from monolithic application suites to purpose-built, SaaS applications with intelligence built in. Microsoft only charges per user and can enable unlimited companies.

The cloud services will include data analysis and visualization tools from Microsoft’s Power BI and tools from Cortana to predict things like which items and services a customer will need, or field agents receive a warning of devices expected to fail. This opportunity will explode in the next several years as the ‘Internet of Things’ allows companies to increasingly take business actions off the input of millions of sensors in their line of work. Companies are already pulling in “slices” of that data, but only get a complete picture when they’re integrating it with all aspects of their business such as financial planning and sales.

Dynamics 365 for Financials is a cloud based application is for small and midsized businesses that have outgrown existing accounting software and looking for a comprehensive business management solution. Dynamics 365 for Financials capabilities span financial management, reporting, fixed assets, workflow and includes multi-currency, multi-language, multi-company, and data migration capabilities. Now you have an offering in the cloud that can easily and seamlessly connects people and processes.

Let’s look at the benefits:

  • Turn disconnected systems into one comprehensive solution
  • Connect your people and processes for more efficient business management
  • Integrate key financial applications, including financial reporting, banking, or business analytics
  • Reduce training time with a system that works like familiar Office tools
  • Stay secure with an enterprise-tested cloud solution
  • Get built-in business productivity and intelligence with integration to Office 365 and
    Microsoft Power BI

Microsoft is the only company that can deliver both the depth of first-party business solutions and fully integrated analytics with and productivity at cloud scale. Delivering on this ability requires true SaaS business apps that directly integrate business processes. Deep integration between Dynamics 365 and Office 365 brings together the two worlds of business process and personal productivity.  Historically users have been the point of integration between business processes and the email, spreadsheet and word processing tools they use. This meant lot of time flipping between apps and a lot of cutting and pasting.  With Dynamics 365, we connect the structured workflow of business apps with the unstructured work of collaboration and productivity for empowered employees and a much more productive experience.
