BIRDS for Microsoft Dynamics 365 FO

From data into action

BIRDS for Microsoft Dynamics 365 FO enables organizations to generate fast, flexible and reliable insight into data with Power BI. The powerful base and smart frontend ensure that you don’t need to have a lot of technical knowledge and users can focus on making better decisions.

BIRDS comes standard with a set of pre-defined reports in Power BI. Users can easily make adjustments, change filters or, for example, create a new report in which data is visualized differently.

Easily and quickly see what would happen to results if there was an adjustment in the number of orders within the sales reports in Power BI. Or see how much you can still produce when fewer resources are available.

With the addition of Power ON to BIRDS and the integration with Power BI that possibility is there. You can now easily write back data to the Tabular model of BIRDS and quickly draw conclusions about future results in case of deviating expectations. For example, Planning, Budgeting and Forecasting allows you to compare live actuals with budgets and adjust and present live budgets.

Add new sources for a 360° view

Smarter decision making is only possible if you have the right information. BIRDS is tailored to the standard version of Microsoft Dynamics 365 Finance & Operations. However, we easily add customisation in Finance & Operations to BIRDS. Within BIRDS it is also easy to include industry-specific add-ons. By collaborating with various Dynamics Finance & Operations partners, a lot of content is already available.

In addition to additions in Microsoft Dynamics 365 FO, BIRDS can also easily read other source systems. For instance, Warehouse Management Systems (WMS) or Fleet Management tooling.

The data is then loaded into a Tabular Model. This model is predefined so that the user does not have to perform any technical actions. If you, as a user, want to make adjustments in Power BI reports, you simply do so in Power BI.

BIRDS consists of a Data Hub and a set of reports in Power BI. The ease that a user experiences with BIRDS comes from the powerful structure of the foundation.

The data from Microsoft Dynamics NAV is loaded into BIRDS. There the data is structured and cleaned. Any shortcomings in the data become clear as a result. Data quality can be corrected on that basis.
