Nowadays, The Intelligent Enterprises are using a hybrid BI strategy

SAP BusinessObjects and SAP Analytics Cloud

SAP delivers best-in-class analytics by combining rapid innovation from the cloud with trusted on-premise capabilities. This integrated hybrid solution expands analytic insights without sacrificing your existing on-premise investments.In detail, this means a seamless experience that business users do not have to think about where data or content is residing; On Premises and Cloud tools and assets work together. Sharing resources between On Premises and Cloud deployments such as tools, data connectivity, visualizations, security, distribution, budget, organization, program management, training, licensing, and internal evangelization, does not require understanding whether the resources are On Premises or Cloud. Often the journey starts with on-premise SAP BusinessObjects which can be combined with SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC) to provide faster innovation cycles with minimal disruption to the on-premise landscape.

A hybrid BI strategy will allow you to take advantage of your investment re-using Web Intelligence reports and data models in SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC).
