We have a requirement where end-user wants to view the dashboards on Ipad.

Can anyone please suggest the Best Fit solution to design a dashboard (to view it on Ipad) from the following options so that it will be the best in visualization and overall performance (data fetching, data loading) of the dashboard..

  1. Option 1 - Data Source -> Universe --> Webi -> LiveOffice ---> Dashboard
  2. Option 2 - Data Source -> Universe --> Dashboard
  3. Option 3: Data Source -> Universe --> Web(optional)--> QaaWS ---> Dashboard

Quick response is much appreciated.

    I would suggest you to go through the second option, using the query browser connection which higher on performance-wise. rather than having a one more tool in between.

    Having said that the use webi you need to make a call whether you need to do any calculation which cannot be done of dashboard side on that case i would suggest you to go with first option.

    In my opinion the best would be to get the data from scheduled webi instances so that the request does not hit the database every time
