BI4Dynamics NAV May 2019 (7.0)
Data Warehouse Automation (DWA) is the most crucial part of our development strategy. In this BI4Dynamics BC (NAV) release, all SQL code is generated automatically. Any change to existing or new functionality is just one click away. We rebuilt the complete BI solution from scratch. A result in DWA edition is the same content as in our Standard edition that has been developed over the years. Now you can enjoy the best of both worlds: content and flexibility.
Data Warehouse Automation at its best
Modeling is based on metadata (AOT)
BI4Dynamics collects all AOT information about tables, enums and generates BI structures much faster and without errors. This significantly improves user’s productivity.
No code development, no SQL knowledge needed
Development is done through an intuitive user interface by selecting AX objects (tables, fields) and applying right names to BI objects (dimensions, measure). The rest is taken care by BI4Dynamics code generator.
All code is 100% open for further modification
Sometimes it is necessary to add a specific SQL code into the existing script. This feature supports further DWA code generation of the same script and preserving manual code intact.
One click documentation generation
Complete BI project documentation is generated with a click of a mouse. It includes details about architecture, formulas, hierarchies, as well as Top tables by size and Execution times of top procedures.
Keeping all Data Warehouse features
Built specifically for Microsoft Dynamics BC (NAV) business
Expandable to complex data models with many entities
Scalable for larger databases with intensive daily processing
A single point of truth for corporate reporting
