When transferring dashboards to SAP suite, which factors should one consider to choose from WEBI, Explorer and Design Studio?


I plan to migrate all of my company's dashboards, which are currently produced by a custom legacy software to SAP tools.The data sources for them are excel files produced using WEBI or database connections.

Researching a little bit on Design Studio (and knowing that the use of HANA is prohibited in this case), it's data restrictions of 5000 rows makes it impossible to recreate all the present dashboards there. So, I'm looking at all 3, WEBI, Explorer and Design Studio in order to redistribute the dashboards, perhaps eliminate the heavier ones, or change the way information is represented to make the given data and available SAP application compatible. S

So, when analyzing the current dashboards, how should I be deciding which dashboards should go where in the SAP BI tools?

(For instance, the size of the underlying data, the complexity of operations needed to be performed on the data, etc)

Any kind of comparative analysis on these 3 tools and suggestions are welcome!
