By - September 18, 2017

Digital Transformation is the profound transformation of business and organizational activities, processes, competencies and models to fully leverage digital technologies.  Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations – Enterprise Edition (D365E) is a powerful set of resources and applications that helps business users make more intelligent decisions through the use of data and real time information.  It helps middle market businesses become innovative in their industries by allowing easier access to useful information. Through many different capabilities companies can benefit through better management of financial accounting, human resources, supply chain, sales and fulfillment, and much more.

D365E supports digital transformation through the collection of data, internally and externally, allowing the business to connect all the data in one application.  Digital Transformation includes people and processes, and the combination of processes through D365E is endless.  As businesses input information D365E can easily make the process of keeping the information organized easier and more effective.  Predictive analytics can be used in a number of ways – for example, over time a business can track sales orders and inventory to see how the data can be used to predict future outcomes.

D365E can be integrated with many applications that can make a process easier and more accessible for any customer.  For example, D365E can be linked to any Microsoft Office product and other tools such as Power BI which can allow customers to build inventory models through graphs, charts, and maps.  As technology grows and businesses need more accessible data applications, D365E will be the optimal choice to keep up with the fast pace of technology.

Dynamics 365E was created with the concept of the Internet of Things (IoT) in mind. Dynamics is a very powerful tool when it comes to gathering information from devices and infusing that information with your ERP solution. Over the past few years devices being made with Wi-Fi capabilities have become more available and less expensive. With that growth also comes the need to have devices communicate with each other. When we are able to have devices communicate with each other, we are then able to have quicker, more meaningful, and more accurate information to run a business or perform a job.

For example, suppose you own a shipping company and you ship items that need to be kept in a particular temperature range. Using a Raspberry Pi with D365E, it now possible to track the temperature on the ship in D365E. The temperature is captured by the Raspberry Pi and sent to D365E. It can also be configured so a text message can be sent to essential personnel in the case that the temperature has fallen outside the needed range. Getting information as the issue is happening can be critical to reacting, assessing, and solving the issue in real time.

These are just a few examples of how Dynamics 365, Enterprise edition, can support growing companies to exceed customer expectations, stay ahead of the competition, and optimize employee performance.
