The value of a Telemetry usage monitor
Telemetry is an important part of monitoring your Business Central application. Waldo shares a story of telemetry usage for 40 of their clients, averaging about 10M events per day, mostly authentication requests and API calls.
Then, one day, that number peaked at 30M signals, which, if unchecked, would have ended up costing them significantly more. The issue originated from a single client whose sudden increase in usage would have almost doubled what they were paying for 40 users.

The future of Business Central
Eric Hougaard has a fascinating interview with Michael Morton, Vice President for Dynamics 365 Business Central at Microsoft. Mr. Morton discusses topics ranging from AI in BC, the future of GP, the Microsoft Fabric, and AL coding for BC.
Moving your Business Central Copilot app into production
Microsoft’s new PromptDialog page type lets developers “create generative AI experiences with the copilot look and feel.”
Stefano Demiliani shows how to use the Copilot Developer toolkit (introduced in Business Central version 23.1) to create generative AI to work with Azure OpenAI models and use the standard Copilot user interface. He also provides guidance on working within the quotas and operational limitations of the Azure OpenAI service when moving your Business Central Copilot app into production.
Check out Stefano’s blog, Dynamics 365 Business Central: Copilot, Azure OpenAI and real-world enterprise usage.
