BIRDS for Microsoft Dynamics AX

From data into action

BIRDS for Microsoft Dynamics AX enables everyone in the organization to generate fast, flexible and reliable insight in data with Power BI. The powerful platform and smart frontend ensure that you don’t need to have a lot of technical knowledge and that you can focus on better decision-making.

BIRDS comes with a set of predefined reports in Power BI on default. 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 AX (Axapta). However, we easily add customisation in Dynamics AX to BIRDS. Within BIRDS it is also easy to include industry-specific add-ons. By collaborating with various Dynamics AX partners, a lot of content is already available.

Besides additions in Microsoft Dynamics AX, BIRDS can also easily be used to import other source systems into the reports. For example, 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.

A powerful platform for better decision making

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 AX 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 improved on that basis.

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.
