Help protect your analytics data and keep your data secure with industry-leading data security capabilities, including sensitivity labeling, end-to-end encryption, and real-time access monitoring.
DynamicsPrint provides raw data which can easily be transformed into valuable information to support your business decisions.
“Power BI,” Microsoft says, “is a business analytics solution that lets you visualize your data and share insights across the organization or embed them in your app or website.”
You can take the right action, find the problem’s root cause and identify the cost-saving opportunities with clear KPIs, measures, and optimization analysis.
Applicable for virtually every data source – data from DynamicsPrint, CRM & much more – tailored tools and highly or completely automated reports and visual management take your analytics to the next level.
Power BI service is secured and hosted by Microsoft. It lets users view dashboards, reports, and Power BI apps.
The possibilities of working with Power BI and the other tools from the Microsoft Power Platform are endless.
Out of the box, there come integrations to Microsoft office applications.
Work together on the same data, collaborate on reports, and share insights across popular Microsoft Office applications such as Microsoft Teams and Excel—empowering everyone in your organization to quickly make data-driven decisions that drive strategic actions.
If your CFO wants the number in Excel, he presses the icon with the Excel logo, and Excel opens, and all the numbers are there. He can then work with numbers, and if he wants to, he can import the new number into the ERP system again.
Integrate via your data lake
In our digital economy, the companies that thrive are the companies that utilize their insights from their data. Why do some companies succeed, and some struggle with keeping up?
To get competitive advantages from data insights, you need a single efficient data lake to go beyond the traditional data strategies. This is where DynamicsPrint and the Microsoft Azure Data Lake can help you succeed in bridging the gap between data and decision-making.
Together the two products make a scalable and secure data lake with your data. The data lake storage helps you create data lakes for your analytics and integration needs by eliminating data silos and providing a single storage cloud platform.
The platform simultaneously updates the data in the lake and the ERP system.
The data lake integrates with your existing IT. It has never been as easy to make integration as it is today. You have several integrations out of the box – and you can create new, both low-code and no-code integrations.
You can integrate computerized machines using JDF and JMF.
Job Definition Format (JDF) is an open standard, XML-based file format that allows you to automate the print production process by passing data between different applications. Simplifying data exchange via JDF makes digital productions faster and more efficient while facilitating faster movement of job details. A JDF electronic ticket specifies how a job should be handled and produced from customer concept to final production.
JDF is broken down into logical roles (MIS to prepress, finishing, digital printing, web to print, wide format, etc.) Those roles typically pertain to which segment of work needs to be completed, but the result is a standard way to connect MIS-based job tracking, automation, and workflow. This means that most modern MIS systems can communicate through JDF technology for job status and much more.
DynamicsPrint receives messages about devices, jobs, inventory/stock, and queues, all through JDF technology. It can be used to communicate to order consumables when the stock is low and to monitor numerous job parameters for accounting and other business process integration.
Think of the JDF file as an electronic version of a customer’s specifications for a particular job. For instance, a job ticket with the customer’s request for an appointment with the specifications “100 copies of a 10-page document on 130 grammages A4-size white paper, printed duplex, black-and-white” would be represented in a standardized XML format readable by JDF-enabled devices, in other words, the JDF ticket.
DynamicsPrint and JDF
- JDF workflow
- Sending JDF-file to prepress
- Receiving status and material/time consumption on:
- Sending JDF-file to print
- Receiving status and time consumption from print
- Monitoring presses through JMF
DynamicsPrint works with, for instance:
- Kodak Prinergy
- Esko AE
- Agfa Apogee
- Heidelberg Prinect
You can integrate non-computerized machines via PLC counters
PLC counters are computers that can count. In our modern world, you can, by using PLC counters, make your non-computerized machines computerized.
PLC counters can, for instant, be used at:
- Printing machines
- Binding equipment
- Folding machines
