How Azure Machine Learning enhances Dynamics 365 Finance & Operations?

What if, instead of just generating heaps of data, Dynamics 365 Finance & Operations could be transformed into valuable insights? The data from Dynamics 365 Finance & Operations can be used to make intelligent decisions with the help of Azure Machine Learning (AML). By enhancing Dynamics 365 Finance & Operations, AML transforms it into a strategic intelligence hub, freeing your organization from transactional limits and pointing it toward optimized resources, informed decisions, and sustainable growth. With the help of AML, Dynamics 365 Finance & Operations may go from being reactive to proactive, and from being isolated to becoming the hub of your data-driven future. Learn how to integrate Azure Machine Learning with Dynamics 365 for Operations in this blog post.

Anticipatory forecasting rather than speculation

Put away those tedious spreadsheets and manual forecasts. With AML, you can use past sales data and external variables to make accurate predictions. To maximize profits and optimize resources, this directs production planning, inventory management, and dynamic pricing.

Make educated decisions based on nuanced data signals.

Using AML, you may analyze Dynamics 365 Finance & Operations data for buying trends, personal preferences, and churn risks. Customers are turned into devoted advocates when AI-driven recommendations provide them with tailored product packages that meet their needs before they even know they have them.

Solve inventory problems

By optimizing stock levels and predicting demand, AML streamlines inventory management. As a result, you can rest assured that your warehouse is well-stocked, fulfillment is streamlined, and storage expenses are reduced. By always having what customers need on hand, your company has a strategic advantage.

How to Use The Finance and Operations modules in D365 integrated with Azure Machine Learning?

Launch a new Azure Machine Learning project

To organize all of your machine learning projects in one place, create an Azure Machine Learning workspace. Computing, storage, and networking are all resources that must be provided. To get the most out of your Customer Insights environment, set up your workspace in the Azure region that’s physically nearest to it. Working in the Azure Machine Learning Studio is a breeze.

Join the Dynamics 365 Finance & Operations

environment with the Azure Machine Learning workspace

Create a secure link between the two. Connectors or APIs, are commonly used for this purpose to enable data sharing.

Export Important Data

Find the sales data from the past and any other pertinent information from Dynamics 365 Finance & Operations that you can use to train your machine learning model. Then, export that data. Financial information, inventory levels, and details about customers and products might all be part of this.

Prepare and Process Data

Get the data ready for processing by cleaning and transforming it before exporting it. This will make sure that machine learning algorithms can use it without any problems. This requires dealing with problems including incorrect formatting, missing values, and inconsistencies.

Create an ML model and teach it to work

Based on the type of forecasting problem you have, choose a suitable machine learning approach (e.g., neural networks, decision trees, or linear regression). Use the provided data to train the model so it can learn from past data and identify patterns and correlations. To get the most out of your model, try tweaking its hyperparameters and algorithms.

Use the model

After the model has been trained, it needs to be deployed to a production environment so that Dynamics 365 Finance & Operations may use it to make predictions in real-time. One option is to store it as a web service, while another is to incorporate it directly into Dynamics 365 Finance & Operations workflows.


Set up Dynamics 365 Finance & Operations to take in the forecasts made by the running ML model as part of the workflow integration. In order to include predictions into Dynamics 365 Finance & Operations workflows, it may be necessary to use integration tools, plugins, or custom code.

Elevate your data-driven revolution
