Microsoft Dynamics AX is a popular on-premises and hosted ERP platform. Dynamics AX offers native financial reporting with its SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS) and Management Reporter tools, and it also includes some basic budgeting functionality. Companies will typically evaluate a Corporate Performance Management (CPM) solution like Solver when they grow out of the native functionality in Dynamics AX or when they are looking to upgrade from manual Excel models. They may also choose to upgrade from another CPM tool to ensure better integration with Dynamics AX.
About Solver’s CPM Integration for Dynamics AX
Solver is part of Microsoft’s Gold independent software vendor (ISV) program and we have developed our AX connector over many years and with feedback from AX customers and partners.
Our corporate performance management (CPM) suite provides a Dynamics AX Cloud Connector that enables automated loading of data into Solver from any module in AX. The integration connects the Solver Cloud application to the AX SQL database using Solver’s secure Gateway application.
In addition to benefitting from Solver’s advanced planning, reporting, and consolidations functionality, Dynamics AX customers can also use Solver’s Power BI or Tableau connectors to deliver pre-structured data to any of these visualization tools and dramatically speed up deployment of dashboards.
Furthermore, as AX customers plan their migration to Dynamics 365 Finance, Solver can simplify the migration to the new ERP by also serving as a data store for any number of years of historical data from AX, thus reducing the effort to convert historical data and reducing the need to keep the old AX system running.
