Quick and easy Dynamics AX reporting

Microsoft Dynamics AX is a sophisticated ERP system. Reporting from AX manually can be highly technical and complex, involving configuration of Microsoft SQL Server, Visual Studio and SSRS toolsets. ZAP Data Hub delivers time and cost savings by automating access, integration and preparation of your AX analytics and data.  This means faster reporting in BI tools, and an end to complex manual processes.  ZAP Data Hub includes smart data connectors, pre-built data models for Dynamics AX.

Report from all versions of Dynamics AX

ZAP Data Hub is ELT data warehouse automation software optimized for all versions of Dynamics AX.  Whether you’re running Dynamics AX2012 R2, AX2012 R3, or Dynamics AX7 – or have customized modules – ZAP Data Hub automates access, integration and preparation of AX data for reporting.  This brings additional benefits when your business upgrades from one version of Dynamics AX to another, as the often costly and risky process of data migration is unnecessary.

Eliminate complex manual data processes

Dynamics AX is a tried-and-tested ERP solution. But, due to a complex underlying database structure, accessing Dynamics AX data for reporting can be time-consuming for IT teams, if done manually.  Reporting frequency, volumes of data required, and the need to add additional data sources can compound this challenge.  Access, integration and preparation of AX analytics data is automated with ZAP Data Hub – with zero coding or scripting required from IT.

Remove risk of human error from reporting

Manual data processing and reporting brings with it many risks.  Often Excel-based, ungoverned and with no audit traceability, manual data preparation seriously risks inaccuracies in information reported.  While key-person dependencies also pose a threat to business reporting continuity.  ZAP Data Hub’s automation of Dynamics AX reporting removes these risks and ensures that reporting is accurate, consistent and trusted.

If your business has multiple instances Dynamics AX, or a variety of different ERP, finance, and CRM systems, then ZAP Data Hub’s automatic data integration can unify these data sources to enable cross-functional reporting and provide a single version of the truth across all your business’s data.
