I'm looking at Oracle Analytics Server and Oracle OBIEE and am trying to understand the difference between the two of them.
I've heard that Oracle Analytics Server and Oracle Analytics Cloud have almost the same features. The difference is that Oracle Analytics Server is on-premise and Oracle Analytics Cloud is a cloud version. But, I also know that Oracle OBIEE is on-premise too.
Peers, can you please assist and clarify it for me?

What challenges to expect when migrating multiple dashboards from TIBCO Spotfire to Microsoft Power BI?
Hello, I'm working at a company with more than 5000 employees.
We have multiple sets of dashboards and we're looking to migrate them from TIBCO Spotfire to Microsoft Power BI. I'm trying to make a case study before kick-starting the work.
What challenges should I expect while migrating the dashboards from TIBCO Spotfire to Microsoft Power BI? Are you aware of any tool (or a set of tools) that could help?
Otherwise, if this migration is done manually, what functionality will potentially be missing in Microsoft Power BI after this migration?
Thanks and I appreciate your help!

Currently, I am using SAP BO Enterprise and running on Oracle.
I'm looking for a much less expensive solution. It's not enough to use MS SQL instead of Oracle.
I'm still profiling the SAP BOE implementation, but would like to head towards a DWH implementation that users can report off. Various users have mentioned in passing: PowerBI, Qlik, Tableau.
At this point, the only solid knowledge I have is that management want to get rid of SAP and Oracle.

Can anyone suggest a good option?

What types of insights do businesses gain from BAM as opposed to BI?

Our HR workforce analytics and process management team have been using Tableau desktop for over a year and found a great deal of benefit from its various features. Our teams deal with a lot of MS Excel and Access files but also have to push data out of key HRIS systems like Workday into Tableau since there is no existing driver connection currently. Now that we are pursuing Tableau server so managers can utilize the dynamic reporting our IT department is concerned since they've invested heavily into Business Objects (with limited use in the company) and we now have to justify going with Tableau Server vs. using Business Objects. Our HR team requires very quick turn around on reports and metrics with strong reporting visualization. Our workforce analytics handles a lot of predictive analytics/forecasting. Ideally we hoped using Tableau would actually free up IT resources to other larger priorities instead of managing change requests on reports consistently. In our opinion based on all of this, including low cost for implementation (under $60k incl. hardware) and low annual maintenance (under $10k) for 30 licenses that Tableau seems to be the clear route to go but I'd like to get some input from others.
So I'd like to ask users out there who are familiar with both systems to provide feedback on what they think a better option might be and any pros/cons when matching up the two systems. Thanks!
