What is business performance planning?

On December 31, 2023, business performance planning capabilities became generally available to Dynamics 365 Finance customers, providing a comprehensive view of financial and operational performance. These capabilities simplify and automate planning, budgeting, forecasting, reporting, and analytics through integration with familiar Microsoft Power BI and Excel environments.

Your administrator can access these capabilities for installation from the Power Platform Admin Center (PPAC). People that need to create budgets, forecasts, plans, and reports will need a Dynamics 365 Finance Premium license. However, current team member licenses will provide read access once plans, budgets, and reports are created and sent for collaboration.



What is business performance analytics?

Business performance analytics is a tool that helps finance departments handle complex data by consolidating data from various sources, such as Microsoft Dynamics 365, third-party ERP systems, and operational tools to create an integrated data model that accelerates updates and automation. It offers a real-time, comprehensive view of business processes through user-friendly tools, AI-guided report and insight creation, paving the way for informed decision-making. By doing so, manual tasks are reduced, IT dependence is minimized, and decision-making processes are optimized, resulting in improved business performance.
