    Hello Sanjay,

    there is no content migration for a Web Intelligence report or a BEx report to SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC).

    SAP Analytics Cloud can connect to the Universes as well as to your BW sources and you can then leverage the provided meta-data and data to create stories.

    Regards

    Ingo Hilgefort, SAP

    Hello Sanjay - there is no automated migration; you will need to manually recreate the reports (stories) on the cloud

    Hi,

    just to add to what the others have said :-

    1. consider leaving your on-premise BI as-is (i.e. for standard reporting), and move to the cloud to evaluate new possibilities including self-service predictive insights and planning workflows.

    2. As outlined above, you'll be re-using your 'semantic layer' investments rather than the report-parts, and in SAC you'll benefit from live connectivity to universes which wasn't possible before in BI4. There's a bobj-like query panel that users/developers will recognised when designing query scope.

    3. rather than trying to re-create like-for-like your businessintelligence reports in analytics cloud, try instead to converse use-cases and condense existing report-packs into a new 'boardroom' paradigm. it's an opportunity to do something radically different.

    4. use SAP Analytics Hub as your defacto front-end into SAC and BI4. SAH is a hybrid content-management system, that can link out to all BI assets including non-SAP bi reports. This provides users a self-service bridge between all their personal and promoted BI content, irrespective of where it is held.

    kind regards,

    H

    the webi report which is based on the universe needs to be recreate-i agreed. But for Bex is there is anyway because Bexquery are supported by SAC as well
