It’s been eight months since Microsoft released Dynamics NAV 2017 and over those eight months thousands of organizations have made the move to get on the most advanced version of NAV ever released. One of the most popular reasons that these organizations moved to this version is because they want to be able to use all the cool new technology that Microsoft has bundled in NAV 2017.

Let’s review our top four favorites.

1. Outlook Add-in

2. Embedded Power BI

You can now use embedded Power BI to easily create insightful charts and reports, and then make them available to your users within your Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2017 role center. Getting started is easy using the Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2017 Power BI Content Pack.  Use the sample reports in the content pack and see great examples of what you can do with Power BI and you can be confident that your data is secure because you can leverage the existing Power BI security to manage your reports.

3. Using Cortana Intelligence

Built-in Cortana Intelligence takes advantage of historical data and improves your insights into your predicted sales, helping you manage your stock and respond to your customers. Based on the forecast, the Sales and Inventory extension helps create replenishment requests for vendors, saving you time.  You can be confident that you are working with the best predictions because the system uses different machine learning algorithms and compares the results, returning the predictions with the highest quality.
