Better Informed People Make Better Decisions

Today’s social connectedness, mobile devices, and growing opportunities for interaction “any time any place” have changed the way many live and work. People are increasingly dependent on connections across the global network—interlocked in this connected reality.

In order to gain the insight needed to make better decisions, organizations need an end-to-end business solution that integrates all areas of their business and provides managers - as well as individual team members and contributors - with the information they need to make the right decisions at the right time!

Modern business solutions like Microsoft Dynamics AX not only connect people inside and outside the organization, they also give them context and insight which drives better decisions and boosts productivity. An important focus of Microsoft Dynamics AX is to drive connections with people, with customers and with business partners across processes, data and the ecosystem in which organizations operate. This focus on connected organizations includes the vision of anywhere, in-context collaboration services that links people and companies to the right people in the right place, in the right context, at the right time, across multiple avenues of communications.

By implementing a fully integrated ERP system like Microsoft Dynamics AX - encompassing everything from sales and marketing to production and accounting - organizations can improve the accuracy of the information upon which decisions are based because each module of the software is tied together and information flows freely among them. Everyone from the top floor to the shop floor can have access to the business intelligence information they need to drive business success across the organization:

  • Keep current on changing business conditions - Accurately monitor current business activity, and compare it to historical activity and future plans to give people the contextual information they need to keep performance on track. Microsoft Dynamics AX delivers many integrated monitoring tools to help your people access the most relevant, accurate, and timely information about your business.
  • Gain insight into your business - It's not enough to gather accurate and timely data—people need powerful and easy-to-use analysis tools to help them understand context and trends. Microsoft Dynamics AX business intelligence functions provide people with the insight they need to take quick action and pursue opportunities.
  • Budget, forecast, and plan effectively - Microsoft Dynamics AX offers flexible planning tools to help you compare budgets, forecasts, and plans to actual performance. It also gives you the ability to update budgets and plans on the basis of new data and analyses to help your business stay competitive.

Microsoft Dynamics AX removes the impediments that generate friction within the organization and provides people with a broader array of insights and actions across internal and external connections. With greater transparency, agility, and insight, your people can make better, more informed decisions - enabling you to transform into a Dynamic Business.

Microsoft Dynamics Business Analyzer for Windows 8

Last month Microsoft announced the launch of the Microsoft Dynamics Business Analyzer for Windows 8 – the first Windows 8 App available for Microsoft Dynamics ERP clients.

The Microsoft Dynamics Business Analyzer displays business intelligence (BI) information from your Microsoft Dynamics ERP solution, including Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R2, Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013, and Microsoft Dynamics SL 2011 FP1. Users of the Microsoft Dynamics Business Analyzer can display reports from their ERP solution, interact with the reports using a variety of actions (such as copy, edit, view, and refresh), and open Microsoft Lync ( for Windows 8 ) directly from a report to initiate a conversation with someone about the report. This can all be done from any of your Windows 8 devices!

The launch of this new app is a milestone in the road to enterprise business mobility for Windows 8 and Microsoft Dynamics ERP clients. In today’s increasingly global and interconnected world, customers need to have quick, easy access to their business data – and they need to be able to access it from a variety of devices. The Microsoft Dynamics Business Analyzer for Windows 8 is the first of what is expected to be even more enterprise business mobility apps to deliver this value to clients.

Merit Solutions is honored to have played a significant contributing role in the development of the Microsoft Dynamics Business Analyzer app. While this milestone signifies a great achievement for Microsoft and its clients, it also represents Merit Solutions’ ability to build and deploy innovative, leading edge Windows 8 and mobility solutions that can help clients get more value out of their Microsoft Dynamics ERP investments.

The Microsoft Dynamics Business Analyzer is free and available for download from Microsoft on the Windows Store: Microsoft Dynamics Business Analyzer for Windows 8. We encourage everyone to go download and use the app - then rate it and let us know what you think!
