MDGP 2016 R1 Feature of the Day: PowerBI Reports on the Home Page
May 1st, 2016 by Ian Grieve
In February 2014 Microsoft launched PowerBI for Office 265 and are now bringing it to the Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016 R1 home page (but only the home page of the desktop client):
The main features of are:
- New part on Home Page to display Power BI Reports.
- Click on the report to take you out to your Power BI site.
I’m not entirely sure how to feel about the addition of PowerBI to Dynamics GP; it almost feels like a scatter gun approach is being used for reporting with Dynamics GP. There are standard reports, Metrics, Excel Reports, SSRS Reports (which for most clients replace the Metrics to the extent I had to lookup the name of Metrics), Management Reporter (with an unknown roadmap/future) reports and now PowerBI reports.
