Intelligent Insights in Business Central Online

As a user of Business Central online, you have full access to scenarios that are based on the intelligent cloud, such as KPIs that are based on machine learning, or when you view your data in Power BI.

However, if you use Business Central on-premises, you do not have access to the same insights. If you want to benefit from online scenarios, you must migrate to Business Central online. For more information, see Migrating On-Premises Data to Business Central Online in the administration content for Business Central.
