Intelligence Cloud: “Microsoft continues to invest in the intelligent cloud, bringing business intelligence, artificial intelligence, machine learning, and numerous other cloud productivity and analytics tools to the marketplace. Customers that actually are using on-premises solutions have not been able to easily take advantage of these services.

Intelligence Edge Device: with the intelligent edge, you can seamlessly connect your on-premises solution to an instance of our “intelligent cloud through Business Central Online”.

When the connection is made, we securely replicate your on-premises data to the intelligent cloud. You simply decide which companies you want to replicate (all if you choose), and then, within the main pages of your on-premises solution, we will deliver back actionable analysis and content.

The intelligent cloud leverages solutions such as Power BI, PowerApps, Flow, and AI to provide insight and actionable messages enabling your business to run even better.

Initial releases will target Dynamics 365 Business Central, Dynamics GP, and Dynamics SL, with legacy Dynamics NAV following shortly thereafter. Dynamics GP and Dynamics SL will continue to receive product improvements and updates, including value added through the intelligent cloud. When you want to move to a fully cloud enabled solution, your data is available in Business Central through migration tools. These migration tools are available within Business Central and AppSource, as well as services through a number of partners that specialize in upgrading customers to Business Central.

    Hi Roberto.

    Thanks for the helpful blog !

    I have finished all the steps and also verified connections working fine. Now, when I reached to the Launch “RUN Replication Now” step, I am getting a failure error saying : “Failed to trigger replication. Please, try again.”

    Any suggestion please ?
