I spoke recently of using NAV with Power BI, currently this topic (NAV integration with Power BI) is current and widely discussed, many questions about “How-to” integrate new and old releases on NAV with Power BI. I have collected a series of posts videos on Power BI and about integration with NAV (the most interesting that I fond).
MICROSOFT POWER BI
Best Definition by Microsoft: “Microsoft Power BI is a Microsoft’s Business Analytics service for Visualizing, exploring and derivinginsights from data!”
Many ask in the forum about books\ebooks\kindles on Dynamics NAV 2017; actually there are no books on Dynamics NAV 2017 (…the same for Dynamics 365 Business Edition), many books have been updated at least to Dynamics NAV 2016.
Good News: “New books on Dynamics NAV will be released soon”.
Below you can find the title and release date of each book, i must point them, the upcoming books look very interesting !
You can find books on Amazon or on PacktPub (also from other sites)
Introducing Microsoft Power BI is a book that covers the basics of the tool and, at the same time, shows you what the main capabilities of Power BI are. The first chapters are similar to a step-by-step guide to start using the service, but the goal is also to show you all available features and the business scenarios covered by them.
This book is targeted to a variety of readers. There are information workers and people who are totally new to the BI world. For those readers, the book acts as a simple introduction to the concepts that are the foundation of BI. Yet, another target category is that of IT professionals and database administrators who might need to drive the decisions of the company in adopting Power BI, because their users are asking for it. For them, this book acts as both a simple introduction to the basic concepts, explaining why users are so interested in Power BI, and as an overview of the capabilities and tools available in Power BI, so that readers can make educated choices in adopting it.
