Using Dynamics GP and Power BI to Empower Data Visualization

Posted on: September 14, 2021 | By: Rosie Gill | Microsoft Dynamics GP

Dynamics GP is a fantastic software if you want to be able to view your company’s raw, real data. Not only is it an ideal solution to safely store data, but it also comes with the ability to integrate with a myriad of powerful tools to maximize your user experience. We are going to take a closer look at one of the tools called Power BI, a data visualization and analysis tool that can grant you deeper insight into your business and help you make smarter, more informed decisions.

Power BI: What is it?

Power BI is a data visualization tool where you can pool together different types of data and create all kinds of visualizations and reports, such as bar charts, pie charts, and line graphs. Once you’ve created the data display of your choice, you can easily share it with colleagues or transfer it to different platforms. You also have access to different dashboards, giving you increased visibility into company information.

How Dynamics GP and Power BI Work Together

Now that we have a grasp on what Power BI is and its purpose, let’s delve into how this external application functions alongside Dynamics GP. 

Dynamics GP 2018 came equipped with a Power BI content pack, in which Microsoft gave users pre-built reports for Financial, Purchasing, Sales, and Inventory data. This pack gets rid of the task of having to create and design data reports manually and allows users to focus entirely on the content of the reports. 

It is important to note that the Power BI content pack is currently only available for Dynamics GP 2018 and later versions.

With that being said, using these two applications in tangent with one another arms you, the user, with a wealth of knowledge and information that can then be translated into better, smarter business practices.
