AI-Driven Profit Optimization: Unleashing the Power of AI in Business Central for a Competitive Edge

Presented by Hennie Fouche, Director of AI, OmniData™

Monday, April 15, 2024 | 4:30 pm – 5:15 pm 

Join us for a deep dive into how Business Central users can leverage AI with their own data, exploring a Profit Optimization Ecosystem built entirely within Azure. Achieving optimal pricing and promotional strategies which positively affects gross profit margins is a challenging endeavor in today’s business world. We will look at how businesses can harness the power of data analytics and artificial intelligence to revolutionize decision-making.

We will explore how to extract insights on an SKU-level, including how to combine price sensitivity and promotion affinity to select multiple pricing strategies aligned to groups of products with similar behavior. Learn how demand forecasting models, powered by bespoke AI algorithms, enable thousands of precise predictions. Understand the effects of seasonality on sales and what impact holidays have in different regions. Discover how optimization algorithms determine and prescribe the ideal moments for price adjustments and product promotions.

We also unveil how Generative-AI models shed light on product cannibalism, allowing executives to make data-driven decisions swiftly. Explore how our solution enhances margin growth, even when products are offered as loss leaders. This session will demonstrate how taking a client from descriptive and diagnostic analytics, through the spectrum of predictive to prescriptive, is made possible with Azure. Finally, we also reveal the ease of integrating the results back into Business Central for execution.

Storytelling with Financial Data using Power BI for Effective Reports

Presented by Robin Abramson, Power Platform Principal, OmniData™

 Monday, April 15, 2024 | 6:15 pm – 7:00 pm

Recent changes to Microsoft’s Standard Visualizations have made it more possible than ever before to lead users to actionable data in visually compelling ways without custom visualizations. Features like an amazing new card visual, reference labels, detail customization and other options have changed the game.

In this session, we will delve into the art of storytelling through financial data using Power BI, taking full advantage of the enhanced visual capabilities. We’ll explore how these changes empower you to craft narratives that resonate with your audience, making data-driven decisions a reality.

Throughout the presentation, we will discuss different visual techniques and the reasons behind implementing them. You will gain insights into the psychology of effective data communication, enabling decision-makers to explore their data more effectively.

Together, we will go through the process of creating a simple but engaging and effective report that showcases firsthand how these enhancements can transform raw financial data into impactful narratives.

Join us to discover how to engage users and drive actionable insights with these new options!
