Keeping up with the ever-changing business requirements in most industries today demands an agile and powerful platform that is easily adaptable. This is exactly what is offered within the integrated business capabilities of MS Dynamics 365. And also exactly why we chose to acquire SCALES and thereby expand our competencies to better match current needs.

The ability to adapt to new business processes as well as the flexibility to scale the ERP solution that must support such changes are some of the core capabilities of MS Dynamics 365. The acquisition of SCALES combined with our SAP capabilities, makes NNIT a leading provider of wall-to-wall ERP services – currently unrivalled in Denmark.

Add to that unique, tailored infrastructure outsourcing and application outsourcing – and get the full package when working with NNIT. Having one provider of these services also ensures smooth processes - which save you time and trouble.


Each component of D365 can be used individually. However, D365 is a case of the total being more important than the sum of its components.

The base of Dynamics 365
In addition to the different apps, there are a range of base components that are key to making D365 the optimal foundation of your digital transformation.

Power BI
Microsoft Power BI is the native Business Intelligence component of D365. Both ERP and CRM solutions are great data collection tools, but their true value lies in analyzing, interpreting and presenting the captured data in order to facilitate better business decisions. Power BI allows you to do just that – it even has pre-built dashboards and KPIs for many business areas and processes.

Flow
Microsoft Flow is a no-code/low-code tool to automate otherwise manual processes. It allows superusers to create flows without any developer skills. This includes triggers to start the flow, and the steps and tasks to be completed. A flow can, for example, be triggered by an email arriving, which leads to a new contact creation in D365 for Sales, and many other events across D365, Office 365 and beyond.

Power Apps
Power Apps allows superusers to create data viewing, entry forms and small apps without the need for developer skills, and without making customizations to the ERP or CRM solution. Power Apps can access data from D365 as well as the Common Data Model, allowing Power Apps to be seamlessly integrated into the D365 platform and data.

Common Data Service
The Common Data Service is the glue that allows D365 to be a single coherent solution, and to avoid unmaintained data silos across the business. The Common Data Model is also the foundation of integrated end-to-end processes. For example, D365 for Sales and Operations extends from the sales opportunity all the way to to the cash process.

So, to sum it all up
D365 will enable you to: ​start with what you need for your business, and develop at your own pace in the cloud gain better insight with built-in, powerful business intelligence stay agile and adapt to changing market demands with scalable applications and platforms.

These days, it's not a question of whether your IT architecture should be in the cloud, but when it should be in the cloud. Here are 7 good reasons why now is the right time.​

Make a fresh start – and discover new opportunities
Especially start-ups, but also many established businesses, now choose the cloud as the natural platform for their central IT solutions.

It makes them more agile, shortens lead times from months to weeks, and enables them to pick business applications the way they select new apps for their smartphones. Think of the cloud as a chance to make a fresh start over with your IT.

Increase your focus on core business
Using a cloud solution makes your IT more efficient. Because its standard components are automatically updated with the latest features, you are free to spend your valuable time on product and organizational development instead of IT maintenance.

IT decisions are decisions about the future. You may not need artificial intelligence (AI), Big Data, or The Internet of Things (IoT) right now, but when the time comes for innovative technologies – you need to be one step ahead.

Focus on your core business, your organization and your customers with a cloud solution. In the global marketplace, these are far more important than price, technology and operations.

Spend less time on digital integration
A lot of companies use considerable resources on integrating the company's different IT systems. If you choose a cloud platform – for instance Microsoft Dynamics 365 – all the solution components are available as an option from the outset.

Everyone can access the data – from anywhere at all times. This increases the company's collective knowledge base significantly. ​Gain control of your company using integrated system architecture, and avoid these kinds of time-consuming misunderstandings.

Let the IT department focus on value creation – not operations
Cloud computing is a new way of seeing IT. Any changes to IT, will also have an impact on your Head of IT. To avoid the temptation of continuing with 'business as usual', the journey to the cloud must be a conscious company decision. By choosing the cloud for your central business applications, your IT managers can focus on developing the business.

​Give IT managers the freedom to work with management on value creation, instead of sticking to conventional IT operations. Learn more about the CIO’s transformation from delivery executive to business e​xecutive.

Reap the benefits of your investments to stay competitive
A cloud-based infrastructure allows you to spread your IT investments evenly across the year as a fixed operational cost – while all the time reaping the benefits: No need to wait for the completion and depreciation of an IT project – you can just go ahead with the next project. Keep your competitive edge – while continuously developing your business.

Cloud gives you peace of mind
In the cloud, data security, uptime, and performance are no longer issues. Your data is safe and security levels comply with current and future legislation, uptime is high, and performance levels are impressive.

The uncertainty that might have kept companies from going cloud has all but disappeared. Cloud technologies have matured to the degree where large international companies have long since chosen the cloud. Choose the cloud for peace of mind.

Cloud enables digital transformation
Digital transformation involves using digital technology to change the way we do business. By moving to the cloud, you can leverage important applications and services on demand.

This means you are always ready to take advantage of rising technologies such as Internet of Things (IoT), Predictive Analytics and machine learning. In other words, f​uture-proof your company with a cloud solution.
