Takeaways from our guide

#1: What makes a data warehouse the preferred choice for enterprises?

Solid core for complex data

Data Warehouse provides a single analysis repository for all data sources across your organization.

Grows with your business

Data Warehouse supports larger sets of data – millions of rows or terabytes of data is business as usual.

Powerful analysis

Data warehouse enables quickly and efficiently analysis without sacrificing any feature as with Power BI.

Information at your fingertips

Snapshots of the data enable additional analysis of historical data that would otherwise not be retained.

#2: Power BI limitation that you need to consider

Complexity of D365(AX)/NAV

If your primary data source is Microsoft Dynamics ERP with thousands of available tables to store your valuable data, then the BI project rapidly becomes complicated.

Performance or details

Power BI Performance on larger data sets is a known issue. Managing Aggregations feature helps with performance but disables analyzing data at a document level.

Overwhelming modeling

Modeling hundreds of tables is possible in Power BI, but it is not easy to manage, even when using the new ‘Modelling Views’ feature.

Additional services

Power BI brings first results relatively fast. But with the complexity of the project, it at some point requires additional services that need to be performed by BI specialist.

#3: Data Warehouse Automation – The best of both worlds
