One of the project requires comparison between WEBI and Dashboard.

So they wants us to list out the pros and cons of both Webi and Dashboard manager. I am giving few points and need more information from you.

Please remember the following requirements / constraints while listing out Pros and Cons.

Points to note:

1. User wants to print the report / dashboard

2. All 28 major metrics (each of these 28 metrics has details). For example. Headcount is one metric and that has details of country, location, department, division, employee, leaves etc) and all these 28 major metrics to be shown in max 6 pages.

3. Apart from the database (SQL Server 2000), Excel sheets will also be used to input data for these metrics.
