In my previous posts, I described two simply methods of using NAV for non-NAV users. These was standard NAV and Excel integrating features. Now, I will go another step forward. We still need to know working in Excel, not in NAV. I will use specific BI solution. In this case, I will present a BI4Dynamics solution. This is number one Business Intelligence for Microsoft Dynamics NAV (by my opinion). It is designed to make you up and running in couple of hours. It’s fast to implement, easy to configure and simple to use. Because of that, I think this is one of the best BI solution for NAV. BI4Dynamics provides rich business intelligence capabilities to companies of all sizes with delivering tremendous business content. Business data from Microsoft Dynamics NAV is processed into BI4Dynamics data warehouse to provide new insights and enhance performance. OLAP cubes and predefined Excel reports include rich KPIs and cover all Microsoft Dynamics NAV application areas.
