LOS ANGELES, California, September 24, 2014 Solver, Inc., the global leader in Business Intelligence for mid-market ERP systems, today announced an integration with Intacct.

“We are thrilled to provide world-class BI360 reporting, consolidations, budgeting and dashboard options to Intacct users and our partners,” said Nils Rasmussen, CEO of Solver. “Our comprehensive Business Intelligence suite is an organic fit for many Intacct customers and prospects, specifically those companies who are still using manual Excel spreadsheets or other sub-par processes to manage financial planning and reporting, but can appreciate the importance and value of automated financial processes.”

“One of the key aspects of a best-in-class financial software like Intacct is the ability to easily extend the system with pre-integrated solutions from our Marketplace partners,” said Scott Lumish, Vice President of Business Development at Intacct. “Intacct customers looking for additional BI capabilities beyond the robust analytics provided natively within Intacct can benefit from the advanced reporting and dashboards provided by BI360 – allowing them to deploy the added BI capabilities quickly and at a low cost.”

Driven by a wizard, the integration connecting BI360 to Intacct is built to make it completely non-technical for an Intacct business user or partner to configure and populate the BI360 Data Warehouse with Intacct data. Almost immediately, joint customers can start writing BI360 reports or configure new BI360 budget models and dashboards.

Solver plans to showcase their upcoming web budgeting release at Intacct Advantage 2014 taking place in Orlando, November 9-13. Intacct customers can also find additional details on BI360 in the Intacct Marketplace.

Business intelligence data stores can be a foundation for your data management and analysis workflow.  This article will discuss options for Microsoft Dynamics users.

Today’s corporate decision-making is all about data: operations, transactions, and more that a company manages and analyzes to understand the best way to move forward competitively.  Keeping and utilizing data is more than a breadcrumb trail or a narrative of where a company has been – it helps to formulate the future.  But without a proper education on Business Intelligence (BI) data stores, understanding your options can be challenging.  There are just a few options, but they are distinct in functionality, and based on your particular needs within and around your Microsoft Dynamics NAV experience, one data store might be the only option you and your team can manage.  This article will discuss the top two options for data storage for implementation with Dynamics NAV: OLAP Cubes versus Data Warehouse.

This article will examine and discuss your financial reporting options for your SAP Business One experience with a focus on the key feature to seek: flexibility.

Flexibility is the buzzword when it comes to approaching the increasingly more consumer-driven and global marketplace.  Flexibility, in the context of data management, refers to your ability to access your company data, which you rely on to make sound decisions about the future of your company, on the go.   Beyond SAP’s own strides, third party Business Intelligence (BI) vendors are competing to offer B1 users ultra-modern, easy-to-use financial reporting functionality, which now more than ever includes the necessity to access information anywhere the job takes them.  Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) have excelled at identifying this consumer demand and have produced with flexibility in mind for SAP B1 customers.

For any enterprise, making the move to a cloud-based ERP platform (take SAP or Microsoft Dynamics ERP as examples) offers a number of benefits.
These include simplified account management, effective team collaboration, and ultimately greater sales. Research by Microsoft found that 61% of businesses said that moving to the cloud allowed deeper collaboration with business partners and 57% said that moving to the cloud early gave them a competitive advantage.
