Pricing and Cost Advice
Depending on your size, try to stick with SAP BusinessObjects BI Edge. Most people tend to overthink the licensing. Remember that one concurrent user means that one person can be performing a task at a given time. That does not mean that only one user can be on the system at a time, it means that only one person can be refreshing a report or designing a dashboard. There are tons of ways you can access your data or reports without consuming a license. I've seen cases where five concurrent licenses support thousands of users.There's no additional charge for a Development environment license, so build an additional development server.​It is not an expensive platform. The licensing is for a package of users starting at 10 users.It has an option of a Cloud Platform (SAP Analytics Cloud) which has a lower price than the on-premise platform, and you can buy individual licences per user.​Just work with SAP to make sure you have enough licenses but don't go overboard.
