Big Data is swirling through the digital landscape at nanosecond speeds, offering businesses insights into their company’s operations and customer base they may never have had before.

In addition to the prominence of Big Data in our lives, the need to embrace the Internet of Things (IoT) is also a driving force behind this aspect of the Information Age. More importantly, while Big Data can reveal actionable data about the human element, that is the customer, the Internet of Things focuses on connecting physical objects such as equipment sensors to security systems to PCs, laptops, and mobile devices.

Using a customized dashboard, Dynamics GP users can monitor key aspects of the company’s operations, from the manufacturing floor, shipping and throughout the distribution network. More importantly, the software allows team members to collaborate in real-time with updated information on all aspects of the business.
