Microsoft Dynamics SL is a popular on-premises and hosted ERP platform. Dynamics SL offers native financial reporting with Management Reporter tool and it also offers 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 SL 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 SL.
About Solver’s CPM Integration for Dynamics SL
Solver is part of Microsoft’s Gold independent software vendor (ISV) program and we have developed our two SL connectors over many years and with feedback from hundreds of SL customers.
Dynamics SL Cloud Connector – Enables automated loading of data into Solver from any module in SL. The integration connects the Solver Cloud application to the SL SQL database using Solver’s secure Gateway application.
Dynamics SL Hybrid Connector – This unique technology enables LIVE reporting from Solver Cloud with a direct connection into your on-premises or hosted SL database.
In addition to benefitting from Solver’s advanced planning, reporting, and consolidations functionality, Dynamics SL 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 SL customers plan their migration to Dynamics 365 Business Central, 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 SL, thus reducing the effort to convert historical data and reducing the need to keep the old SL system running.
