It can be hard to truly understand how your company is functioning. Masses of data can lead to overlooked data and make it difficult to accurately analyse how effective your business activities are. However, innovative Microsoft stack solutions can support you in overcoming such obstacles. Here are a few of the best...

  1. Power BI
  2. PowerApps
  3. Dynamics 365

1. Power BI

Power BI is a self-service analytics tool that creates the insights you need to carry out increasingly effective business actions. Making you more informed for decision making. Power BI produces visualisations to form analytic reports and dashboards of your key business data, enabling you to see crucial data information you may have initially missed.

At present, your method of storing data might be lots of Excel documents which can be hard to cleanse and navigate. Perhaps your data is currently unstructured, being drawn from a variety of places, or alternatively, your data may be in a centralised data warehouse. Wherever your data is located, Power BI hyelps you analyse information by pulling your data into its software, to quickly produce intuitive visualisations alongside an interactive real-time dashboard.

The functionality within Power BI enables your users to confidently connect with your business data, be that by inputting information or being able to understand the data they are faced with.

As a result, Power BI fosters business collaboration, as creations in the software can be shared with colleagues and are accessible remotely across many devices.

Built-in governance and security features empower business users to connect to data with confidence like never before. Assisting you in identifying your market competitiveness - so you can focus on the problem and evolve your best solution.

2. PowerApps

PowerApps give you the autonomy to be more productive with your data. The software allows you to create functional business-centric applications to fulfil your business's needs through a platform you can build personalised apps within. Enabling your manual business processes to become digital and automated through PowerApps enriched business logic.

A key benefit is that you no longer need large budgets to commission apps from developers. Instead, Apps can be created in a short amount of time, with the skills you already have, as no coding knowledge is needed.

PowerApps help you to achieve your desired app by providing: sample apps, templates, and blank screens. Whilst also supporting users with guides throughout their building processes.

So what other benefits can PowerApps bring to your organisation?

Well for starters, accessibility is a primary focus within PowerApps. By enabling remote access across all devices – you have the power to make updates wherever you are and share apps instantaneously. Apps are also easily shareable with teams, and business activities are no longer manual and time-consuming, boosting productivity.

What’s more, the app functionality is to support your organisation long-term, as your creations are customisable. Making it easy for you to undertake app changes along the line that continue to reflect your evolving business needs.

3. Dynamics 365

The Dynamics 365 package presents you with intelligent CRM and ERP solutions. Its software is constructed by varying interchangeable modules that tackle businesses operational needs, which consist of; Sales, Marketing, Field Service, Project Service, Customer Service, Operations, and Finance.

Businesses that utilise the Microsoft Dynamics 365 modules benefit from clear end-to-end solutions within unified environments. As by being modular, Microsoft has enabled the option for system users to have access to only their relevant module areas. A functionality that still allows for your entered information to be disseminated across the solution, preventing data duplicates and time wastage.

What's more, each module promotes a user-centric interface, allowing you to switch between apps with ease whilst also delivering operational search functionality options.

Being user orientated, the Dynamics 365 solution actively encourages your business to personalise the solution having flexible and customisable interfaces. Whilst also bringing together Microsoft business applications through simple integrations to interrupt information silos within your company.

Thus, enhancing your users’ and customer experiences overall – accelerating your business's growth.
