Insights grants access to a plethora of data, be it in the form of onsite dashboards or the Data Warehouse connection for your Intellum account. To assist in understanding your data and how to use it, Insights also enables the Data Dictionary where you can review documentation that explains the nuts and bolts of the internal Intellum data structure.
