Those are the phrase we hate the most whenever we go through Change Management or as a Project Manager and Director of IT, "That's how we've always done it".


There were some who swears on Excel, in Dynamics, we use Jet Reports since it lives in Excel and have similar functionalities as PowerBI on their latest release. It does have the ability to connect to SQL even if you're not using Dynamics ERP.
