Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central
Business Central has number of strengths, but there is one advantage that really stands out: VALUE. Here list of Business Central strengths:
Business Central Audit Trail
It is better in protecting against errors and employee data manipulation. Within Business Central, it has reversed transactions rather than deleting them (whether accidentally or intentionally). It means there will be a valid audit trail.
Scalability at its best
Dynamics 365 Business Central is built on Microsoft Azure platform with the ability to scale to support growing transaction volumes and more users. Includes a web - based reporting portal with extensive reporting capabilities.
Business Central Powerful Reporting Feature
Business In terms of reporting, here what we have found:
- Ability to provide data access permission to different users
- Order entry reports to see operational person performance analysis
- See open purchase orders and purchase comparisons in accounts payable
- Use a web - based reporting portal
- Enhanced reporting capabilities with Power BI product
The share codebase between Dynamics 365 Business Central and Dynamics NAV ensures complete consistency and ease of transition for users between on - premise and cloud versions.
However, due to deployment model, the on - premise option has fewer data security benefits, requires more frequent attention by internal IT team, and more cost in long - run. It makes sense, because the users have more control of the application when using this deployment model.
Organisation will spend bigger cost upfront with this model as they are going to pay for own servers, plus a proper server management in place, power backup plan and separate payment plan for proprietary updates and upgrades.
Despite the weaknesses mentioned above about on – premise deployment, but it still has the same audit trail and data permission functions, it still works fine and do improve your internal security.
