Great post by NAV Team about the integration of NAV with an Azure Machine Learning Model
About Microsoft Azure Machine Learning Studio @https://studio.azureml.net
Since I’ve never talked about this topic, I mention this post because I consider it very interesting, you can read the source post by NAV Team to replicate the example. The example illustrated by Microsoft opens a series of future scenarios related to the integration between NAV and Azure Machine Learning features.
HOW-TO Connect to Machine Learning and activate Azure Machine Learning Workbench
–Sign up for an account, you can choose the free (green) model
–Open Workbench, the studio lets you create experiments and then publish them as a web service.
..AND NOW …YOU CAN DO “EXPERIMENTS”….

NAV 2017 Cash & Inventory Forecasts
“Dynamics NAV 2017 already introduced the Time Series functionality to use Azure ML to make cash– and inventory forecasts. Here is how you can enable it for Inventory forecast in less than 10 steps.”
The following steps are based on the demonstration data for Dynamics NAV 2018:
This post is a summary of what was new already in “Dynamics NAV 2017: Using “Microsoft Azure Machine Learning Studio” to create (load) and then publish a model which we will call from Dynamics NAV to make inventory or cash forecasts.”
This is the model which is already available

Compliance Manager Preview is now available ! (GDPR)
*Compliance Manager is a dashboard that provides a summary of your data protection and compliance stature and recommendations to improve data protection and compliance. This is a recommendation, it is up to you to evaluate its effectiveness in your regulatory environment prior to implementation. Recommendations from Compliance Manager should not be interpreted as a guarantee of compliance.”
As we get closer to general availability in 2018, we will add support for additional products, including Azure and Dynamics 365, along with a Compliance Score feature that reflects your organization’s compliance posture based on your activities in Compliance Manager. We’ll also be adding more regulatory standards like National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Special Publication 800-53, along with additional evidence to support Microsoft’s compliance to the GDPR. We’ll be increasing depth in the recommended actions for your GDPR program as well as the evidence that you can use to demonstrate support for the GDPR when using Microsoft services.
To provide you with access to all of Microsoft’s cloud-related security, compliance, and privacy information, we have also revamped the Service Trust Portal, which provides auditing and assessment reports, technical whitepapers, and various how-to guides.
