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...

  2. PowerApps

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.

Manufacturers have long been reducing waste and improving product yield and quality by rolling out lean and Six Sigma methodologies. However, due to the complexity and quantity of production activities for most manufacturers, it’s often challenging to identify where they can optimise their processes. This is where implementing new technology can help. Here, we explore five benefits of introducing manufacturing-specific solutions within your operations and how it’ll improve your financial efficiency.
The retail industry – like many others – has experienced rapid transformation over the last few years with solutions such as the Internet of Things (IoT) taking centre stage. IoT has many uses and benefits for retail, including the ability to offer more personalised shopping experiences, increase customer loyalty and satisfaction, boost sales and improve inventory management. It’s estimated that IoT in retail will grow to $94.44 billion through 2025. This increase emphasises how IoT adoption won’t only improve the customer experience directly, but the need for businesses to change the way they do business to meet the demands of today’s connected customer. Using IoT in retail doesn’t only improve the customer experience. It also drives the customer experience by giving businesses the opportunity to gain a better insight into their customer preferences and the opportunity to create a more personalised and interactive ‘shopping’ experience.
A successful data breach can ruin a brand’s reputation in the competitive online world. Though some companies can salvage their reputation and remain relevant in their industry, many never recover from a data breach.

Many companies don’t see anything wrong with their data quality, management and governance processes. But upon examination, this often isn’t the case. It’s easy to forget how big of a role humans play; your people are an important cog in the stream of data. They contribute to these streams and if they’re inconsistent in their approach, it can lead to issues further down the line. I talk about this topic in more depth on an episode of Migration Minded, a podcast series created by the D365 Migration Community. Hosted by Tom Wisniewski, Microsoft’s Global Product Marketing Manager for Dynamics 365, he asks me about cloud migrations, the importance of change management, data management and more. Listen to the episode below (or watch it here).
Data has increasingly become an asset in its own right, capable of identifying and generating extensive business value in today’s digital-focused world. Data monetisation alone is a growing industry with an expected growth rate of 24% by 2027. There’s no doubt that it’s set to become more valuable this decade to those who fully embrace it.
