NAV Customers have their say on Reporting and Analytics

A worldwide survey of Microsoft Dynamics customers has detailed their use of reporting and analytics.


Conducted by MSDynamicsworld.com, the survey’s 432 respondents offered insight into their desire for improved analytics, challenges in analysing and reporting Dynamics data, problems with offline spreadsheets, highlighted areas for organisational improvement, and barriers to business intelligence.


The survey reveals the challenges Dynamics users face in making better use of data, including reliance on technical staff, the time taken to perform this work, and not having the right tools. “Business users have a clear desire to perform analysis themselves, without relying on technical staff, but aren’t sure how to make this a reality,” the survey concluded.


Significantly, 84% of NAV customers agree their organisation needs to improve its analytical capabilities to remain competitive. 40% of NAV users say achieving growth and recurring business would have a big impact on organisational performance, with achieving operational efficiency, and growth and recurring business, also ranking at 40%. Currently, 25% of NAV customers use reporting tools to analyse their data, 25% use offline spreadsheets, and 18% a business intelligence (BI) solution.


Those NAV users without a BI solution say they don’t have the budget for BI (26%), and BI takes too long to implement and gain a return on investment. 55% of NAV users say using offline reporting and analysis causes problems with accuracy and data integrity.
