Post subject: Migration to Cloud

We are a small organization in Washington DC using SAP Business Intelligence tools with Oracle. We are exploring a move to the cloud and would appreciate any advice or input you may have. We hope to hire an experienced consultant to advise us on the options/costs and recommend an approach. Thank you in advance for any advice, guidance, or consulting recommendations.

Welcome to Bicon_mrgreen.gifB!

What aspects are you looking at moving to the cloud?
Your whole operation? The BI platform?

It would be unfair for us to recommend something without knowing your full requirement.

Main warning that I've noticed so far - if you use a lot of SQL in your BI ETL, note that the merge statement is not yet supported by AzureDB or Redshift for example.

Cost will be a big issue as well, so understanding database sizes and file transfer and processing costs is very important - I've seen people stung for over £1,000 just for experimenting with not a large amount of data!

Current version I'm using: 4.1 SP3 over Oracle. Well versed in SQL Server too, including SSIS

Prior versions used: BO3,4,5,6.5,XIr2,XI3, 4.1 - yes, I have been using BO since 1996!
