Is using Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business central ERP software for your organization the equivalent of a human doing the keto diet? Low-carb diets have been debated for decades but recently a low-carb, moderate protein, and high fat diet has become popular and shown to have health benefits in certain people. This new trend is called the ketogenic diet. A ketogenic lifestyle simplifies your eating habits by cutting out what is believed to be “bad foods” and focusing more on what is believed to be “good foods”. The same could be said of putting your organization into ketosis by using Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central.
