Microsoft Dynamics AX contains a set of comprehensive business reporting functions that prepare company-specific data in real-time.

Microsoft Dynamics AX brings life to Business analytics and intelligence like never before.
Dynamics AX embeds Power BI as the native Business Intelligence tool. Sharing the Power BI engine eliminates the performance issues that spring out of the scenarios where real-time data is to be received with queries. Organizations no longer need to rely on last month’s or older data for driving their strategies and for planning their course for the future.
With Power BI in Dynamics AX, near real-time analytics are now possible. Earlier, Dynamics AX was a separate tool, and Power BI was a different analytics-specific platform. With the combination of the two applications, immense potential can be realized by companies this year.

Microsoft Dynamics AX allows companies to implement strong and valuable Business Intelligence applications that can get some real work done and put some real effective strategies on the table.
BI in Microsoft Dynamics AX
Microsoft Dynamics AX enables its users to provide Online Analytical Processing (OLAP) functionality through the use of cubes. These cubes are built on the Microsoft SQL Server Analysis Services platform and enable the users of the system to analyze and study huge amounts of data to identify the trends that may not be visible when viewing the data on traditional reporting systems.
The primary reporting platform for Microsoft Dynamics AX is the Microsoft SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS). The default reports that Microsoft Dynamics AX provides can be run on the Reporting Services platform.
With all these systems and platforms in place, implementing Business Intelligence solutions and leveraging Business Intelligence services in Microsoft dynamics AX services becomes smooth and only the most skilled and proficient companies know the value that lies inside data.
