Introduction ^

I think this webinar was the first one in which we didn’t even open Microsoft Dynamics GP. This because this webinar focused on how business intelligence can be used with Microsoft Dynamics GP. We focused on two business intelligence products which can be used to quickly build required dashboards and reporting for business intelligence.

The two products we looked at are complimentary and can be used both together or independently. They are Jet Analytics and PowerBI

Jet AnalyticsThis post is part of the series on Upgrading to Jet 2019.

Before installing the new version of Jet Analytics, it is worth noting that Jet recommend leaving the old version installed while installing the new. There is no reason given for this, but I presume it is tio allow for easy rollback in the event of problems.

To install Jet Analytics, download the Jet Analytics software:

Upgrading to Jet 2019: Series Index

Jet Global Data TechnologiesBack in April I did a series of posts on implementing the various products from Jet Global Data technologies (or Jet Reports as they then were before their re-branding).

Jet Global have recently launched new versions of their products and I thought a short series on upgrading might be useful. This post is the series index, and will automatically update as the posts go live (if you’re reading this on a syndicated post, make sure you check back to the original as only that will update).

In this series I will be upgrading both Jet Analytics (formerly Jet Enterprise) and Jet Reports (formerly Jet Professional).

Jet Reports is Now Jet Global Data Technologies

Jet Global Data TechnologiesAs of 1st Ovtober 2018, Jet Reports have re-branded to Jet Global Data Technologies (or Jet Global for short).

Since Jet Reports was created, the company has gone through a number of changes and no longer just does reporting. This was true enough as was, but with the recent release of Jet Budgets it is even more accurate. The name change is meant to represent this expanded focus.

As part of the company re-brand, the products have also been re-branded:

Old Product Names Now Product Names
Jet Express for Excel Jet Basics
Jet Professional Jet Reports
Jet Enterprise Jet Analytics
Jet Web Portal Jet Hub
  Jet Budgets

As you can see, the Jet Reports name itself is not going away; instead Jet Professional has been re-branded to Jet Reports. My initial thought was that I didn’t like Jet Professional being re-branded to Jet Reports as this could cause confusion for clients, but I think the reality is that most clients already refer to Jet Professional as Jet Reports.

Jet Global also promise that existing users and partners “will experience the same level of service and even more features and functionality now than ever before, and there will be no significant changes to the way Jet Global conducts business with its global partners and customers”.

Implementing Jet Enterprise: Implementing Jet Professional

Jet ReportsThis post is part of a series of posts on implementing Jet Reports and is part of the Jet Enterprise sub-series.

No, the title is not a mistake. When you purchase Jet Enterprise, you also get a licence for Jet Professional. This ensures you get the full reporting capability available from Jet Reports. It also means that as well as following my series on Implementing Jet Enterprise, you should also follow the series on Implementing Jet Professional.

In the last post, on the Jet Enterprise sample reports, I said you could use the reports for both Jet Professional and Jet Enterprise, but forgot to say how. The how is because you have access to Jet Professional if you install it.

Implementing Jet Enterprise: Sample Reports

Jet ReportsThis post is part of a series of posts on implementing Jet Reports and is part of the Jet Enterprise sub-series.

As with the other versions of Jet Reports, there are sample reports available from Jet Reports. Back in May I posted about the sample reports for Jet Professional.

The download for Jet Professional and Jet Enterprise is the same one; with jet Enterprise all of the files in the download will be able to be used.

To download the use the reports, follow the instructions in the Jet Professional sample reports post.

The final step in automating the deploy and execution of the project, is to create the scehdule. Do this in the Jet Data Manager Server by selecting the Execution tab, right click on the execution package to which you want to add the schedule and then click Add Schedule:
