If you are using Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), Microsoft will automatically push the latest version to you within a short release window.
Previously, these 'automatic' upgrades were fairly straightforward and tended to happen in the background.

This means that a little more attention is needed to ensure regular updates are delivered.
Our Evergreen service mitigates this risk by managing the process in a proactive way. The process involves:
Rather than your system automatically upgrading and you having to deal with issues your live system, we provide a controlled and managed process for upgrades. Happy users and a healthy system!
If you are hosted on-premise or in a private cloud, it is easy to continue with business as usual and allow new updates to Business Central to pass you by. As new versions are released, you will find yourself more and more versions behind and a growing investment is needed to catch up.

With our Evergreen service, we plan a yearly upgrade as part of your BAU management of Business Central. The process involves:
The aim is to ensure you are never more than two versions behind, so you can take advantage of new features, including any statutory requirements, and make the most of your Business Central investment.
