In addition to Business Centrals’ robust ERP functionality is the ability to extract and discern relevant, critical information for better decisions. This is enhanced greater with the “built-in” integration with Microsoft Power BI.  Microsoft Power BI accomplishes this by retrieving Business Central data allowing you to build dashboards and reports based on that information. Power BI provides a flexible alternative to reports built-in Business Central, enabling you to drill down and customize the visualization, and even merge data from different companies in Business Central.
